Brothers of the Cross of Jesus

A congregation founded in 1830 at Lyons, France, by Reverend C. M. Bochard, Vicar-General of Lyons, for the Christian education of the young. The growth of the congregation in France and Switzerland ceased with the persecution of 1903, but the institution, incorporated in Canada in 1905, now conducts a number of Canadian houses.
