Since 1923, the Holy Cross Mission Center has been at the intersection of integral human development and the Catholic Church’s faith and justice work through parish ministries, education, healthcare, and social outreach programs.

100 years after its original founding, the Holy Cross Mission Center sustains the Holy Cross legacy by supporting Holy Cross priests and brothers at missions in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

In honor of this historic milestone, please join the Holy Cross Mission Center at the Centennial Celebration: “Encountering Christ on the Global Peripheries”, held in McKenna Hall at the University of Notre Dame on September 25, 2023!
