What is a Holy Cross Associate?
Holy Cross Associates are persons who share the values of the Sisters of the Holy Cross (faith, prayer, compassion, and community). They participate in the mission of Jesus in our 21st century global community by living these values in their daily lives.
A Holy Cross Associate is called to a mutually supportive relationship with the Sisters of the Holy Cross through one of two dimensions:
Associate-Friends: Those who have journeyed with us in the past and continue to experience a call to join us in our ministry efforts and in mutually supportive relationships but do not feel called to make a formal commitment.
Associate-Partners: Those who, knowing our mission, values and ministry, feel called to make a formal and public commitment as Associates and participate in a formation process in preparation for that commitment.

Please join us in offering the following prayer daily for our Holy Cross family
Holy Cross Prayer
We pray you, O God, to take under your loving care
the Holy Cross family: sisters, brothers, priests and associates
and all who are working for the coming
of your reign of justice and peace.
Grant us safety of body, peace of soul,
and such success as you know to be best for us.
May we never grow weary in well doing,
and when you call us to rest from our labors,
be yourself our great reward for all eternity.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, the Christ,
who is, who was, and who is to come. Amen.
