Let us welcome Fr. Bob Rossi from the Crosier Fathers & Brothers.
Who are Crosiers? They are a union of Christian men who will to live and work in a community to keep the Gospel alive and proclaimed. At more than 800 years old, we are one of the oldest Roman Catholic religious orders of priests and brothers.
The name Crosier is derived from the French word croisés—signed with the cross. They bear the crusader cross on our habit as a sign of our devotion to the Paschal Mystery of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection.
There are more than 400 Crosiers today worldwide. They have two large, vibrant communities in the United States–one in Phoenix, Arizona, and the other in Onamia, Minnesota.
