Serve God With Holy Joy
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.
Are you called to a Precious Blood life?
Precious Blood spirituality sends us out to the edges where people are suffering. Through renewal of the Church and reconciliation of the world through Christ, we seek to be with people who are hurting and build bridges through Christ’s love.
Become a Lay Associate
Inspired by 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.
Walk with those who suffer
Precious Blood Volunteers will help you grow in your faith and discern your life calling by building community, walking with people who are suffering, and seeking reconciliation in a divided world.
How Am I Called to a
Precious Blood Life?
“Following the example and inspiration of St. Gaspar, our Precious Blood Community is called to fan into a flame the renewal today. He challenges me to not grow weary, but to stay energized about the mission of evangelization and renewal.”
– Fr. Ron Will, C.PP.S
“I feel privileged to be invited into people’s lives through the sacraments, whether it is at the beginning of life or the end of life, during an illness of body or soul, or regular communion. These moments are truly grace-filled moments.”
– Fr. Mark Yates, C.PP.S.
“As Precious Blood Missionaries, we see Christ’s shedding of his blood as a call to breach walls that divide, make openings where ‘two (or more) can walk abreast,’ and to stand in solidarity with those who suffer injustice in the world.” – Fr. John Wolf, C.PP.S.
“As Missionaries of the Precious Blood, we are called also to share our light with all people. Every human person is important and has value. Our light loses nothing by sharing it. As we share our light, it becomes even brighter.” – Fr. Joe Miller, C.PP.S.
