The Apostleship of the Cross is an association of Cristians in the Church who, moved by the Holy Spirit, follow Jesus Christ priest and victim, contemplative and solidary, and who, in communion with Jesus, collaborate with His salvific mission.

The Apostleship of the Cross is open to all People of God: lay persons, religious, and ordained ministers.

Concepción Cabrera was inspired by God to begin the Apostleship of the Cross. It was founded on May 3, 1895 by Archbishop Ramón Ibarra y González. Pope Leo XIII approved the Apostleship of the Cross on May 25, 1898

It is the first of the five Works of the Cross. The others are the Sisters of the Cross of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Covenant of Love with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Fraternity of Christ the Priest, and the Missionaries of the Holy Spirit.

The Apostleship of the Cross is organized by Regions

1. Christ the Priest Region (USA)
2. Province of Mexico Region
3. Felix de Jesus Region
4. Conchita Cabrera de Armida Region

The Christ Priest Region is divided into Areas. Currently there are three areas: Northwest Area, Southwest Area and South-Northeast Area.
The Houston Center belongs to the South-Northeast Area.
