The Missionaries of the Precious Blood believe in the power of the blood of Jesus, shed for all, to change the world.
Pastors, teachers and preachers involved in many kinds of ministries, we encourage reconciliation in our homes, churches, workplaces, towns and cities. We want to help bring God's healing grace to the world.
Our priests, brothers and lay associates seek out God's people who are suffering from loneliness and despair, poverty and violence. Every person is a child of God. Every one.
Jesus Christ has redeemed all people with his Blood. It is our mission to help everyone draw closer to the God who saves us.

Congratulations to Deacon Bob Jansen, C.PP.S., ordained on Monday, May 20 at St. Charles Center, Carthagena, Ohio. Deacon Bob is shown here with family members and the ordaining bishop, Bishop Joseph Charron, C.PP.S., along with Father Larry Hemmelgarn, C.PP.S., provincial director.
This week the Missionaries gather for their annual assembly at St. Charles. Father Andy O'Reilly leads them in reflections on the values of their founder, St. Gaspar, that are still alive in the Congregation today.
The Missionaries are beginning a three-year celebration of the bicentennial of the founding of their Congregation. The Society was founded on August 15, 1815, in Giano, Italy, by St. Gaspar del Bufalo.
This year, the Missionaries are celebrating the Congregation's history; next year, its present missions and ministries; and in 2015, its future. You'll find musical resources for celebrations here.
