Associates

Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
Eph. 4:11-13

The CPS Associates are men and women whose mission is to share in the charism and mission of the Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood – to give witness to the life-giving Blood of Christ flowing through us, and in total surrender to the Spirit, make ourselves available to the ever-changing needs of our neighbor.

Our mission is to be God’s life-giving presence among all people. Our main purpose is to deepen one’s spiritual life through communal prayer, faith development, growth experiences and shared CPS ministry. Any Catholic with a desire to live the Charism and Mission of the Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood is eligible for membership.
