The Missionaries of the Precious Blood are celebrating their bicentennial in 2015!
The Precious Blood Bicentennial was held on August 15, 2015 at our motherhouse, St. Charles Center, Carthagena, Ohio. We hosted over 1,000 guests at this public event which included an outdoor Mass and mission presentation.
We also co-sponsored Jubilation! with the Northern Network of Youth Ministers. Jubilation! was a youth and family event held on August 9, 2015 at The Spiritual Center of Maria Stein & The Shrine of the Holy Relics.

The Congregation was founded by St. Gaspar del Bufalo in 1815. We welcome all to join in the celebration.
The Missionaries ofthe Precious Blood is a worldwide Roman Catholic congregation of priests, religious brothers and lay associates (called Companions), who believe that the Precious Blood of Jesus offers healing and redemption to all.
Through the Eucharist, we draw near to the God who loves us. Through the saving grace of the Precious Blood, we encourage reconciliation in homes, churches, workplaces, cities, towns and neighborhoods. Our priests, brothers and lay associates, in their lives of service, are especially dedicated to those who are suffering from loneliness, despair, poverty or violence.
In the Precious Blood of Jesus, we find the strength to carry out our many ministries. Through the Precious Blood, we offer hope and healing to a broken world.
