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.

A Companion practices and integrates into his or her daily life a spirituality of the Blood. This spirituality transforms the Companion into a person who brings life where people experience death, and gives hope in times of suffering and despair.

A Companion forms a relationship with the community of Missionaries. Through written covenant, Companions walk side by side with the Missionaries, sharing at the table of the Eucharist and striving together to understand how the Spirit is moving us to respond to the needs of the world.

A Companion gives witness to the world as a missionary beyond the Community, the Church and into the world, increasing the circle of God’s love, focusing most especially on those who are poor and marginalized in Church and society.
