About Us

We are Crosiers, members of the Canons Regular of the Order of the Holy Cross, dedicated to the spirituality of the glorious Cross. The focus of the Crosiers' ministry is to touch suffering with hope.

Living Together for God Alone, Crosiers follow the Rule of St. Augustine. Our community life, our fidelity to public celebration of the liturgy of the Church and our rich contemplative prayer life form a substantial part of our ministry to the Church. Crosiers work in education, chaplain service, pastoral ministry, spiritual direction, jail ministry, immigration services and elder care.

The U.S. conventual priory is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, with locations in Phoenix and in Onamia, Minnesota. The international headquarters is in Rome, and Crosiers serve the Netherlands, Germany, Brazil, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Indonesia.
