There are two meanings to this:
- One refers to the Catholic Religious order, Congregation of the Resurrection.
Congregation of the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ (C.R.) is an international Institute of Consecrated Life of men within the Roman Catholic Church, founded in 1836 by three men, Bogdan Jański, Peter Semenenko and Hieronim Kajsiewicz in Paris on the heels of the Polish Great Emigration. The name of the Congregation referes the sounded bells in Roma in noon of the Easter 1842, when the first seven brothers left catacombs of the church of Saint Sebastian outside the walls after their vows: As consecrated religious, resurrectionists profess the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.
