Offerings in 2020
UPDATE: Staying healthy, safe and blessed
The Crosiers wish to meet the sacramental needs of the People of God while following safety precautions established by medical professionals and the Diocese of Phoenix.
In line with the diocese, we are joyfully able to distribute Communion on Sundays from 9 a.m.-10:30 a.m. under the carport adjacent to the Crosier Village parking lot, 717 E. Southern Ave., Phoenix 85040. Crosiers will serve as Communion ministers and wear masks and gloves.
All who wish to receive Holy Communion are respectfully required to follow the safety guidelines below
- Wear a mask from the moment you leave your vehicle to the moment you return to it.
- Maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet at all times (married couples and families may stay together).
- Communion will only be given in the hand. Please do not remove your mask while in line.
- After receiving the Body of Christ, please return to your vehicle and safely exit the parking lot.
- Unfortunately, time for socializing is not available at this time either with the Communion minister or others who come to receive Communion.
We plan to distribute the Body of Christ in this fashion until it is determined that the People of God can safely return to physical prayer. We pray for and look forward to that day!
Through the intercession of St. Odilia, patroness of the Crosiers and advocate for healing, and Our Lady of Guadalupe, may God grant us health and protection.

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 has continued to grow. 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.

The Crosier School of Holy Listening, founded in 2016, is a unique two-year training program designed to prepare lay spiritual directors to serve the Latino Catholic community in the Phoenix area. ESEC is an outreach of Caminando Juntos, an initiative of Crosier Village Ministries under the sponsorship of the Crosier Fathers and Brothers in Phoenix. The major objective is to provide education about spiritual direction in the Hispanic community and, within the next 10 years, to make competent lay spiritual directors available especially to Catholic Hispanics of the eight major Hispanic parishes in Phoenix.
ESEC’s three-hour monthly sessions, conducted entirely in Spanish, are organized into three segments. The school engages the best-known presenters, facilitators and supervisors for spiritual direction in the Phoenix area. These include local pastors and other professionals in Christian ministry formation. Participants must be Spanish-speaking, at least 30 years of age, respected for the practice of the Catholic faith and under spiritual direction themselves. They must also have an endorsement from their respective pastors and have completed studies at the Kino Institute of the Diocese of Phoenix or in a comparable program.
La comunidad cruzada de Phoenix presenta La Escuela de Santa Escucha (ESEC). Fundada en 2016, ESEC es un programa único en español para formar directores espirituales laicos que sirven a la comunidad hispana.
La necesidad de formar laicos en la comunidad hispana como directores espirituales se hace más y más clara. La Iglesia crece en número de hispanos con pocos sacerdotes y religiosos disponibles para la dirección espiritual. Los movimientos en la comunidad eclesial hispana son muchos y están dirigidos en su gran mayoría por laicos que merecen y necesitan atención pastoral.
La comunidad cruzada de Phoenix es una comunidad religiosa de sacerdotes y hermanos católicos. Ayuda al inmigrante es uno de nuestros muchos servicios brindados a la comunidad.
