To fill the spiritual and educational void of post-revolutionary France, Blessed Father Basil Moreau founded the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1837. Blessed Moreau called on the priests and brothers of Holy Cross to educate "both mind and heart," principally in schools, parishes and in mission territories.

During this Lenten season, let us participate in the 30-Day Retreat with Basil Moreau.
