Missionaries of the Precious Blood
Vision Statement from XX General Assembly
The Blood of Christ, poured out for all and drawing all near, is the source and summit of our life and mission. This Blood impels us to affirm the dignity of life as we embrace a wounded humanity and creation. Rooted in the Spirituality of the Precious Blood and the Ministry of the Word, our mission is to be a prophetic witness for the renewal of the Church and the transformation of the world. As a courageous community of missionary disciples, the Cry of the Blood calls us to the edges of society to be ambassadors of Christ for reconciliation and hope as a minister with the People of God. Living the Bond of Charity, our life reflects a multicultural communion of incorporated members and lay associates. Faithful to the missionary charism of St. Gaspar, our mission houses are sacred spaces of hospitality and renewal for mission. Every missionary embraces the responsibility of shared leadership for the well-being of the community. Our chosen leaders are servants who animate us to share our gifts for the realization of our vision and the fulfillment of the Reign of God
The Missionaries of the Precious Blood is a worldwide religious congregation. We are structured into seventeen units (seven provinces, four vicariates and six missions) serving the Church in more than twenty countries.
We continue St. Gaspar’s Ministry of the Word by preaching renewal and conversion through missions and retreats. We bring that love of God also to parishes, schools, hospitals, and prisons. As missionaries, we work where the Church needs us most and where the Good News has not been heard.
Following St. Gaspar, we live together whenever the needs of the apostolate permit. A bond of charity unites us, allowing us to place our gifts at the service of the Church and one another. Our community houses serve as centres of prayer and reflection to renew us for service in mission.
Christ’s shedding his Blood was, for St. Gaspar, and is for us, the sign of God’s great love for all the people. This spirituality of the Blood continues to impel us to build community through the inclusion of the marginalized, to walk in solidarity with those who suffer, and to seek reconciliation in a divided world.
