Many Missionaries of the Precious Blood minister to the people of God in parish life as pastors or associate pastors. We minister in urban settings, in small towns and in places in between.
It is through parish life that many people find their true faith family. Our C.PP.S. pastors are there to lead, guide and walk alongside the people of God in their everyday lives.
In other countries, too, many of our C.PP.S. members are pastors of parishes, which in Latin America may cover hundreds of square miles in rural areas or many thousands of families in congested cities. Parish life is very different in Latin America, where the Church is called on to supply many of the basic human needs of its parishioners.
Whether in the U.S. or in other countries, C.PP.S. pastors live, pray and work alongside the people of God as together they walk the path that God has laid for them.
Here's a list of Cincinnati Province Parishes and a presentation of the Seven Characteristics of a Precious Blood Parish.
