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.
The Precious Blood family—C.PP.S. priests, brothers, and sisters, lay associates and friends of the Community—gathered at St. Joseph's College in Rensselaer, Ind., for a retreat led by Father Barry Fischer, C.PP.S. The theme was Following Francis: A Precious Blood Response to the Pope's Call for Renewal. Read more and listen to Father Barry's presentations here
Summer pilgrimage season is in full swing at the Sorrowful Mother Shrine in Bellevue, Ohio, which is sponsored by the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. Recent events have included Philippine Sunday and a visit from the Catholic Cross Bearers, who arrived at the shrine on their motorcycles.
Coming up are Hispanic Sunday on August 17; Slovenian Sunday, August 24; and Polish American Sunday on September 7. These are lively celebrations of faith--but the beautiful, peaceful grounds of the shrine are also open for weekday prayer and worship.
