The Congregation of Holy Cross was founded in France in 1837 to be educators in the faith. Blessed Basil Moreau began a community of priests, brothers and sisters to educate the children of Le Mans, France. In just five years, he sent six brothers and a priest to the United States as missionaries where they began the school in northern Indiana that eventually became the University of Notre Dame. Currently, the priests and brothers serve at five other institutions of higher learning: St. Edward's University (Austin, TX), the University of Portland (Portland, OR), King's College (Wilkes-Barre, PA), Stonehill College (North Easton, MA), and Holy Cross College (Notre Dame, IN) as well as many high schools. Holy Cross religious also serve in parishes, schools, and missions in 15 countries. In 2010, the Congregation celebrated the canonization of Brother André Bessette, "The Miracle Man of Montreal," and oversaw the building of St. Joseph's Oratory in Montreal.
