Jubilee 2020 and 2021

Ten Sisters of the Holy Cross celebrated their jubilee years of consecrated life on July 17, 2021. Four sisters celebrated 50 years since their initial profession, and six celebrated 25 years. This year we honored the 2020 and 2021 jubilarians in a special, virtual fashion, where everyone was able to participate. We congratulate and honor these sisters, whose stories and ministries are chronicled on the pages to follow.

Please join us in celebrating them and this milestone occasion by sharing your notes, prayers, poems, memories, photos and more with them for their personalized Blessings Books. Click on any of the images below to get started.

    Hello,
    Please email me Sr M Conrad Grant’s obituary. I believe she passed away in 1995. She was my 6th grade teacher Sept 1961 at St Mary’s Grade School, now the Basilica School of St Mary, in Alexandria, VA. She became ill in Oct or Nov 1961 & was unable to continue teaching our class. She was transferred to the order’s retirement home in Kensington, MD. We wrote each other a couple of times, but I lost track of her from there.

      Hello, We have talked to the Archives department, they were unable to share an Obituary but did have access to the Obituary card that is standard for the Sisters of the Holy Cross. We would be happy to email you a .pdf of the Obituary card to the account associated with your comment. Please let me know if you would prefer a different email address. For increased security, please send an alternate email address to communications@cscsisters.org. Thank you again for your inquiry.
