Mission & Vision
The Partners in Mission of the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood have responded to an invitation from God, expressed through the community. It is a call to strengthen our commitment to the Gospel and to deepen our prayer life. We promise to support and empower each other as we live out this mission through acts of prayer, reconciliation and service to Church, family, neighbors and friends.
Jesus calls all Christians to an ever more profound sense of mission and to a commitment of service for the reign of God. The Partners in Mission support one another through prayer and mutual commitment to live out the mission of Jesus in our times.
“For by its very nature the Christian vocation is also a vocation to the apostolate…Indeed, the law of love, which is the Lord’s greatest commandment, impels all the faithful to promote God’s glory through the spread of (God’s reign) and to obtain for all (people) that eternal life which consists in knowing the only true God and Him whom God sent, Jesus Christ.”
– Decree on the Apostolate of the laity No. 2, 3 –
The Sisters of the Most Precious Blood of O’Fallon respond to this call through their religious vows, a commitment to communal living and furthering the mission of the Church. Partnering with our community provides an opportunity for individuals who share the same sense of mission and commitment to respond to God’s call, while continuing their own living and working situations.
Impelled by our charism of reconciliation, we the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood of O’Fallon, Missouri, open our hearts and community to lay persons who seek to be a reconciling presence in a world that is broken, fragmented and violent. We desire to collaborate with lay persons so that together, through mutual support, we will be instruments of peace at home, in ministry and in our Church.
