2020-2021 Volunteer, Mike Price
Mike Price will serve at Most Holy Redeemer Parish in San Francisco, California, and live in community with Father Matt Link, C.PP.S. at Most Holy Redeemer.

Why do you want to volunteer?
“I know volunteerism is something that people love to engage in to give part of themselves to the world, but I know this will also help form me in ways to encounter the Lord. I believe in the works of all religious orders, and I am excited to be part of this community for the coming year.”
Why do you want to volunteer with Precious Blood Volunteers?
“I’d met Fr. Matt Link C.PP.S. from Most Holy Redeemer a little over a year ago, we’ve remained in contact and he suggested I should pray about giving myself a year of service. I was inspired and encouraged by the ministry Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church was doing in their community which led me to take this next step as a Precious Blood Volunteer.”
What are you looking forward to about your volunteer experience?
“I look forward to the encounters I will have with the Most Holy Redeemer community in a parish setting. I am excited to learn more about parish life, but also about myself as I grow as an individual spiritually.”

Precious Blood Volunteers is excited to announce that four new volunteers will serve with us for the 2020-2021 volunteer cycle. We will again collaborate with Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation in Chicago with one volunteer and we will also continue our commitment to Kansas City with two volunteers. One of them will be serving at KC CARE Health Center, and another will be splitting his time between Cristo Rey and the Bishop Sullivan Center.
New for the program, our Kansas City volunteers will live in community at Jerusalem Farm in Northeast Kansas City, Missouri. The Kansas City Province and Jerusalem Farm have a longstanding relationship and this partnership will be deepened and strengthened because of this arrangement. In previous years, our volunteers lived in community at Gaspar Mission House in Kansas City. We decided to have them live in a different community setting to maintain a safer environment for the priests living at Gaspar Mission House since we are in the middle of a pandemic.
Also new for this year, we are thrilled to announce a new placement at Most Holy Redeemer Parish in San Francisco! Our volunteer at Most Holy Redeemer will be living in community with Father Matt Link, C.PP.S. Father Matt has been gracious in extending a welcome to our volunteer there.
We give thanks to God for this wonderful group of young people! Over the next few days, we will be introducing them on the Kansas City Province website and on social media. Orientation is starting this Saturday, July 25! Please keep them in your prayers throughout the year.
