Precious Blood Renewal Center was packed on Sunday, October 28th with a diverse group of people coming together to bless our new sacred space at our grand opening, “Together We Rise.” Honoring the mission of the Renewal Center, which holds that we offer healing and hope, renewal and reconciliation to all people, speakers from different faith traditions spoke about each one of our charisms. Fr. Joe Nassal then shared the meaning of our mission from a Catholic perspective. Then each faith tradition: Indigenous, Islamic, Sufi, Buddhist, and Catholic blessed the Center with a prayer from their tradition. The celebration included a selection of treats from around the world thanks to Lucia Ferrara, the hospitality director. Our hope is that PBRC will continue to be a place where people from all faiths, races, cultures, ideologies, and backgrounds come together so that understanding and love for one another will grow.

Please plan join us on December 8th for our Advent Day of Prayer led by Fr. Ron Will, C.PP.S., “What Child is This?” or on the evening of December 21st for our annual winter solstice celebration led by Fr. Joe Nassal, C.PP.S.,  “Darkness and Light: Living the Mystery.”
