These words from the hymn of a Sunday morning prayer provided the inspiration for this article of E-Current. At this time of Christmas 2017, the presence of seventeen postulants in our Congregation seemed to me to be “present of God".
In the picture, the crèches of Peru, Africa and Haiti show God "offered for sharing" in Jesus. Father Moreau, our Founder, shares with the Church the present of Holy Cross: women and men who dedicate their lives to God in the following of Jesus and in service to the world. And the branch of the Sisters of Holy Cross, in this image, shows seventeen young women from Haiti, Africa, and Peru (color of the frame indicates place of origin of each) who bring as their "shared gifts" their own desire to live Consecrated Life, a life consecrated to God, for the world and in Holy Cross.
In a spirit of gift exchange and sharing, Holy Cross offers them - with its warm "welcome", the present of its support and prayer, the gift of its own life, a life consecrated to God... in the following of Jesus... and for the service of the world.

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."
