News from the Congregation of Holy Cross, Sponsor of Holy Cross Family Ministries


The Congregation of Holy Cross, United States Province of Priests and Brothers joyfully celebrates the Final Profession of Vows and ordination to the Order of Deacon of Mr. Matthew C. Kuczora, C.S.C., on the weekend of Aug. 27 and 28. When Kuczora professes his perpetual vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, he will be committing to live the rest of his life in communion with the life and the work of the Congregation of Holy Cross. He will focus his discipleship through a life of making God known, loved and served across all borders.

When asked about his calling to join the priesthood and what drew him to Holy Cross, Kuczora responded “I had Holy Cross priests as my professors, rectors and in-residence priests during my undergraduate years at Notre Dame and I was impressed by the work they were doing, but maybe more attracted by the joy they had doing it.”

Deacon Kuczora has been assigned to serve at Nuestra Madre Santísima de la Luz Parish in Guadalupe, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. In addition, he will serve as Director of Postulants (a program to provide candidates with an introduction to the history, spirituality, charism, life, and work of the Congregation of Holy Cross). Kuczora will be ordained to the priesthood in April 2012.
