The Congregation of Holy Cross combined the Brothers of St. Joseph, founded by Jacques-François Dujarié at Ruillé in 1820, and the Auxiliary Priests of Le Mans, founded by Basile-Antoine Moreau in 1835. Holy Cross priests and brothers have worked in schools and parishes in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America.
