Fr. Robert Epping, C.S.C., elected Superior General.

This plan will be designed and ... [cached]

This plan will be designed and overseen by the General Administration, led by the newly elected Superior General, Fr. Robert L. Epping, C.S.C.

"No restructuring will be effective, if we put new wine into old skins-that is, if it is not accompanied by an in-depth renewal, a tenderness of heart for the zeal that inspired us to accept the call originally," said Fr. Epping in his homily to close the 2016 General Chapter.
While the 2016 General Chapter has concluded, its work is just beginning, not only for Fr. Epping and the new General Administration, but also for all the members of the Congregation. There is much to be done, but just as the Congregation's founder, Blessed Moreau, took solace in the conviction that Holy Cross was "God's work," Fr. Epping continues to trust in the work of Divine Providence.
"As we look to the future we have to be friends who plead to God for mercy on our Congregation as Abraham made his plea, relentless and persistent, in begging mercy. Our experience tells us God is generous and leads us when we yield to his generous help. For we believe he will give our Congregation, Moreau's sons, only good gifts and in particular, his Holy Spirit, simply because we ask sincerely and with trust," said Fr. Epping.

Fr Robert Epping, CSC, The 13th Superior General In The History Of The Congregation Of Holy Cross

On Monday afternoon, July 18, the 2016 General Chapter of the Congregation of Holy Cross elected Fr. Robert L. Epping, C.S.C., as Superior General. Fr. Epping is the 13th Superior General in the history of the Congregation. He succeeds Fr. Richard V. Warner, C.S.C.
"When Fr. Warner asked if I would let my name stand for election, I responded it must not be my will, but God's," said Fr. Epping.
"I responded 'I do'," continued Fr. Epping, "meaning to add something like, 'as God's will for me.' But those words never came out of my mouth.
Now I must form a team to lead the men of Holy Cross as the Spirit wishes to lead us," said Fr. Epping.
