Institut religieux de Sainte-Croix


The religious community of Sainte-Croix (Holy-Cross) celebrates the liturgy according to the extraordinary form of the Latin rite, under the provisions of the motu proprio "Summorum Pontificum".

Founded by the Father Revet in the 1960s, the monastic community also supervises a children's village and scouting activities. Its statutes confer a double origin to it: bénédictine (the monks are oblats Benedictines) and scouting. The frieze and the dress of ceremony refer to religious military orders. The main symbol is the potencée, distinguished cross of the scouts of France and originating from the cross of kingdom of Jerusalem.

For more information, please see the Institute's website:Do you have more information about Riaumont? If so, please comment to this post.
