But, what is Foundation Day? 

Foundation day is a celebration of the third 'word', which came the first Friday of May, 1985.

The Companions of the Cross began with 4 seminarians meeting with Fr. Bob Bedard, CC for support in their vocational journey. During the early share-group days of the mid 1980's this group received 3 'words'. 

  • The first word was, "I want the relationships that are building among you to endure beyond ordination." (Give God Permission, 225)
  • The second word was, "I want these brothers to work together after ordination." (Give God Permission, 225)
  • The third word was, "I don't know what you guys are going to think about this one, but I think the Lord is saying that he wants these brothers to live together." (Give God Permission, 225-226)

​​We celebrate the first Friday of May as Foundation Day in recognition of the reception of the third 'word'. Everyone is invited! Bring your friends!
