This year is the 175th Anniversary of the founding of the three feminine branches of the Congregation of Holy Cross. Our hearts overflow with gratitude and humility to the God of our Yesterdays, Todays and Tomorrows, and to our Founder, Basil Moreau, who has entrusted us with the mission of "Liberation through Education."
