The Missionaries of the Precious Blood believe in the power of the blood of Jesus, shed for all, to change the world.
Pastors, teachers and preachers involved in many kinds of ministries, we encourage reconciliation in our homes, churches, workplaces, towns and cities. We want to help bring God's healing grace to the world.
Our priests, brothers and lay associates seek out God's people who are suffering from loneliness and despair, poverty and violence. Every person is a child of God. Every one.
Jesus Christ has redeemed all people with his Blood. It is our mission to help everyone draw closer to the God who saves us.
Congratulations to our C.PP.S. members who celebrate a milestone anniversary in 2014! They were honored during a liturgy on July 1, the Feast of the Precious Blood, at St. Charles Center in Carthagena, Ohio. They are pictured here with Father Larry Hemmelgarn, C.PP.S., the provincial director, Cincinnati Province.
Father Larry's homily included a reference to a wonderful appetizer he had once tasted, bacon-wrapped stuffed dates. Many people asked him for the recipe at the social and dinner that followed the Mass, so we are sharing it here.
Father Dave Kelly, C.PP.S., is the director of the Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation, or PBMR, in Chicago. A day at the center, located in a violence-torn neighborhood on Chicago's south side, can bring sorrow, trauma and strife—but the center staff members continue to find joy in their work. Read more.
The Sorrowful Mother Shrine in Bellevue, Ohio, will host a pilgrimage for C.PP.S. Companions (lay associates) on Sunday, August 10. Read more about this faith-filled event.
