In this second edition of our newly designed vocation magazine; Ave Crux, we share the stories of three Holy Cross priests. Each serves in one of the three main ministerial charisms of the Congregation; Education, Parish and Mission. These three priests share examples of serving the people of God in very different ways, and yet each brings a distinctly Holy Cross character to his life and work.
