The Companions of the Cross was founded in 1985 by Rev. Robert Bedard, CC. In 2003 we were established as a Society of Apostolic Life.
We are a Roman Catholic community of priests committed to living and ministering together as brothers in the Lord. God has called us to labour boldly for the renewal of the Church through a dynamic evangelization centered upon Christ crucified, who is God’s power and wisdom. Spurred on by the love of God, we desire all people to come into the fullness of life through a personal and ongoing encounter with Jesus Christ.
As Companions of the Cross we root ourselves in:
Love for Christ Crucified, a Spirituality of God’s power and wisdom
