The Crosier Fathers and Brothers in the United States live in two vibrant communities—one in Onamia, Minn., and the other in Phoenix, Ariz. Crosiers are involved in a wide range of ministries serving the Church and those in need, including parish assistance, retreat work, spiritual direction, elder care, immigrant outreach, and jail ministry.
Today there are about 400 Crosiers living and ministering in the United States, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Indonesia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Brazil, and in Rome, where the Order is based. Every Crosier plays an integral part in our community.
We invite you to meet and learn more about our members: how they heard and responded to God's call, how they live their lives in service to our community and the Church, and what Crosier Religious Life means to them.

We are Crosiers – vowed men called to embrace and proclaim the Cross of Jesus Christ through our lives of community, prayer, and ministry to help the people of God find hope in suffering and joy amidst struggle.
We are members of the Canons Regular of the Order of the Holy Cross, one of the Roman Catholic Church’s oldest orders of religious men.
