The Congregation of Holy Cross will celebrate the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in June, according to Bro. Thomas Giumenta, C.S.C., acting superior, Congregation of Holy Cross. It is the patronal feast of the Priests of Holy Cross, and there will be a celebration on Thursday, June 7, with a Mass at 5 p.m. in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher. All faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend.
According to an entry on the Congregation of Holy Cross website, “As Holy Cross priests, we find our model of priestly charity in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, that heart pierced on the cross by the soldier’s lance in the final proof that Jesus offered all for us. In imitation of Him, we, too, seek to offer all in laying down our lives in service of the People of God. Especially through ministering the Sacraments, we hope that the blood and the water that flowed from the pierced Heart of Christ continue to give life to our world.”
