150 Death Anniversary of Blessed Basile Moreau

On January 20, 2023, the Congregation of Holy Cross marked the 150th Anniversary of the entry of its founder, Blessed Basile Moreau, into eternal life. To commemorate this important anniversary, the 2022 General Chapter declared “a celebration to honor our founder, Blessed Basile Moreau, beginning on January 20, 2023, and ending on June 7, 2024, the Feast of the Sacred Heart” (Decree 20).

In addition to many local celebrations, the Congregation united across the globe for 40 hours of Eucharistic Adoration to initiate this year of grace, which is dedicated to promoting the spirituality and charism that Blessed Moreau gave to Holy Cross. It is also a time to deepen devotion to this holy religious and priest and to pray for his canonization, so that, along with the Congregation of Holy Cross, the Universal Church can find inspiration in his holiness, consolation in his intercession, and strength in his fidelity to the Cross.
