Missionaries of the Precious Blood scott
Precious Blood Vocations
We are a “Society of Apostolic Life,” priests and brothers sharing a common mission of service to the Church, living a community life, sustained by a spirituality of the Blood of Christ. These three pillars—mission, community, and spirituality—support our life and work together.
Inspired by our founder, St. Gaspar, the Missionaries of the Precious Blood envision a community where priests, brothers, and lay people—called “Companions”—unite to become voices that proclaim the Most Precious Blood of Christ. Their lives of service and ministry in the world are a vital witness to the power of the blood of Christ given so freely to all the people of God.
Precious Blood Volunteers is a ministry of the Kansas City Province. Precious Blood Volunteers will help you grow in your faith, and discern your life calling, while you serve people living in poverty.
