Canons Regular of the Order of the Holy Cross

Crosiers long to imitate Christ through the union of mind and heart in community and through a life of liturgical prayer and ministry.
So, how do you know God’s calling you to become a Crosier?


Consider becoming a Crosier if you have a deep passion to follow Christ and to be in fuller union with God. As a Crosier you will pursue this calling from God in unity of mind and heart with your Crosier brothers. You will go toward God together with us.

Consider becoming a Crosier if you desire to live in a community of priests and brothers where you live for God alone by seeking to combine contemplative routines with a shared ministerial life, as a priest or a brother. Crosiers live for God alone in community life, which is an expression of their communion with Christ and each other, actually living together, sharing lives and gifts with other Crosiers and the Church.

Consider becoming a Crosier if you feel called to pray with other men who love the liturgy of the Church (Hours and Eucharist) and who are committed to common prayer. Crosiers hold up the Triumphant Cross as a sign of hope in suffering and joy amidst struggle. As a Crosier (a man of the Cross) you will witness this spirituality of the Cross where all may know and share in the glory of Christ’s paschal mystery – his death and resurrection.

Consider becoming a Crosier. As a Crosier, you will seek, with other Crosiers, to be an evangelical leaven within society and to announce the Good News in the midst of our life together and in the world.

Consider becoming a Crosier and take the next step. Write to us.
