Celebrating the Founder: Moreau Day

Moreau DayFamily Theater Productions is sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross, an international Catholic religious order founded by Blessed Basil Moreau, C.S.C., in 1837 in France. Every year on January 20, the priests, brothers and sisters of Holy Cross gather to celebrate this remarkable and holy man. This year, at Family Theater Productions, we hosted several Holy Cross Sisters from Siena Center in Ventura, St. Agnes Parish in Los Angeles and other members of Holy Cross for Moreau Day. Beginning with Mass, the day celebrated Blessed Basil Moreau’s vision for a religious community built to emulate the Holy Family and we reflected on how far our “yes” to God can spread.  Holy Cross is now in 17 countries, and involved in everything from parish life to universities to making movies.
