Missionaries of the Precious Blood

We are a Society of Apostolic Life, priests and brothers, together with lay associates—Companions—and Precious Blood Volunteers, who share a common mission of service to the Church, living a community life, sustained by a spirituality of the Blood of Christ.

COVID Policy, January 2022

At Precious Blood Center and Precious Blood Renewal Center, the health and safety of our staff and visitors is a priority. The number of infections from the Omicron variant have skyrocketed, and we need to do what we can to prevent people from getting seriously ill. The evidence indicates that those who are fully vaccinated can still contract the virus, but the resulting symptoms are generally mild and not severe enough to warrant hospitalization. Those who are not vaccinated are at much higher risk, and make up the bulk of people needing hospitalization due to the virus. Therefore, to be morally responsible in safeguarding the health of everyone, we will require that anyone participating in group events on the Precious Blood Center campus be fully vaccinated, as indicated by a valid proof of vaccination card. We will continue to follow CDC guidelines regarding masks and social distancing. If for any reason we cannot determine whether or not people are vaccinated and boosted, the gathering(s) will either be canceled or shifted to a virtual format. This applies to Renewal Center gatherings and daily mass gatherings in the chapel.
As always, any of our policies related to the Covid situation are open to change if/when the pandemic situation warrants it.

Join Us

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.

Vocations

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.

Companions

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.

Volunteers

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.
