The Crosier Community of Phoenix lives and prays together in their priory located in the Biltmore area of central Phoenix. The Crosiers serve as associate pastors and provide weekend assistance in the Diocese of Phoenix. They are involved in a number of apostolates, including campus ministry, immigration assistance, jail ministry, spiritual direction, visiting memory care patients, and other ministries that serve the Church.
Crosier Citizenship Preparation Classes
The Association of the Companions of the Holy Cross is comprised of Catholic men and women, single and married, who wish to deepen their baptismal commitment through the inspiration of the Crosier way of life.
The Companions, a group connected with the Crosier Community of Phoenix, embrace fellowship with other Companions and Crosiers, establish a daily rhythm of prayer in the spirit of the liturgy, and provide acts of service in response to human and religious needs.
The Companion program began in 2008, and the first group of candidates made their commitment in March 2009. Since then, the association continues to grow under its second director, Fr. Stephan Bauer, osc. Companion life and service are guided by the Companion Constitutions, which were approved by the Crosier Order. The Constitutions are an inspirational document, naming the values of the Crosier tradition and providing guidance for living by them.
