Today, our Provincial Administration announced that I will become the Religious Superior at Holy Cross House beginning July 1, 2023. I am delighted to be part of our medical facility and retirement center. It is home to 45 Holy Cross Religious. The house also plays an important role for other Holy Cross priests and brothers who are ill throughout the United States.

In 1976, while in college, I served there as an orderly. I witnessed in the beginning of my religious life the care we have for our older and ill religious. I am humbled to be part of the healing mission of Holy Cross House. I am grateful to the Congregation of Holy Cross to serve in this new position.
