Sisters of Holy Cross

The Sisters of Holy Cross, headquartered in Montreal, Canada is Catholic congregation of religious sisters which traces its origins to the foundation of the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1837 in Le Mans, France by the Blessed Father Basil Anthony-Marie Moreau, CSC. Two other congregations of sisters also have the same origins: the Marianites of Holy Cross (New Orleans, Louisiana) and the Sisters of the Holy Cross (Notre Dame, Indiana).

For a history of the four congregations of Holy Cross, see the Congregation of Holy Cross.
