Becoming a Crosier

Crosiers long to imitate Christ through the union of mind and heart in community and through a life of liturgical prayer and ministry. How do you know if God is calling you to become a Crosier?


Consider becoming a Crosier 
if you have a deep passion to follow Christ and be in fuller union with God. As a Crosier you will pursue this calling together with your Crosier brothers. You will go toward God together with us.

Javier first professionConsider becoming a Crosier if you are looking for a life in a community of priests and brothers where you live for God alone by combining contemplative routines with a shared ministerial life. Crosiers live for God alone in their community life, an expression of their communion of Christ and each other as they share their lives and gifts with other Crosiers and the Church.

Consider becoming a Crosier if you feel called to pray with other men who love the liturgy of the Church (Hours and Eucharist) and who are committed to common prayer. Crosiers hold up the Triumphant Cross as a sign of hope in suffering and joy amidst struggle. As a Crosier (a man of the Cross) you will witness this spirituality of the Cross to the world—a spirituality where all may know and share in the glory of Christ's paschal mystery, his death and resurrection.

Consider becoming a Crosier. As a Crosier you will seek, with other Crosiers, to announce the Good News in the midst of our life together and in the world.

Consider becoming a Crosier!
