Seminarians raising mission cross in Latin America.

Raising the “Mission Cross” is a longstanding tradition dating to the time of our Founder.  At each mission where we work to bring God’s love to His people, we place a large, unadorned cross in the ground. This cross serves as a reminder to all of us that we share in the suffering and the triumph of Christ.  It bears no Christ figure because each missionary is to be the Body of Christ to the people he serves.
