A Letter From Our Rector

Dear Friends of the Passionists,

Welcome to our website and community at Saint Paul of the Cross Monastery. From the early 1850's the Passionists have welcomed men and women from throughout our nation to stand at the foot of the Cross of Jesus to be embraced by his love, relieved of the spiritual burdens of their lives, and forgiven and healed through the wounds of our Crucified Savior. Our Monastery is holy ground. Let us all seek out the Crucified and Risen Lord in prayer and sacrament, in community and family, in ministry and service to the crucified of today.
                                                                                                                                         V. Rev. Mark G. Ward, C.P.
