  Precious Blood Preachers
Adorers of the Blood of Christ, Missionaries of the Precious Blood, Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood, Sisters of the Most Precious Blood, Sisters of the Precious Blood, and their candidates, Associates, Companions and Partners in Mission are invited to join in this ministry.

One need only be willing to give one week a year to this ministry, attend a weekend training workshop and spend some time preparing for the mission before heading to the parish for the mission celebrations.

The parish will provide for transportation and each preacher will receive a $500 stipend.

Those who wish to be part of this ministry should have some experience preaching the Word of God – though this experience need not be at Mass or at parish missions. They should contact the director of Precious Blood Parish Missions about oportunities to join in this miniostry.

Preaching Teams
Preaching teams will be made up of one Missionary of the Precious Blood, one sister from either the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, the Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood, the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood or the Sisters of the Precious Blood, and one lay person who is either an Associate of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ, a Companion of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood or a Partner in Mission of the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood.

Members of these teams will work together, leading a retreat day for the local mission team (made up of at least eight parishioners) during the day on Saturday, preaching at the parish weekend Masses and preaching and presiding at the four major celebrations of the mission. One of the preachers will celebrate the children's liturgy of the Word and lead the children in their activity while the other preachers preside and preach at the parish celebration. Responsibity for preaching, presiding and ministering with the children will be shared by and rotated among the members of the preaching team.




Planning Manuals

A manual to help the preacher and the parish prepare for the parish mission has been designed and revised in light of the experience of doing several Precious Blood Parish Mission. Proclaiming Abundant Love and Celebrating Unbounded Mercy each have their own planning manuals.

A Preacher's Guide

This Preacher’s Guide was developed as a response to the requests of some of the preachers at the training workshop for preachers of Precious Blood Parish Missions in Chicago, April 22-24, 2005. It is meant to help the preachers in their own preparations for the mission.

It includes some reflections on preaching in the Precious Blood tradition developed during the Precious Blood Congress: One Name – A Thousand Voices, held in Dayton, OH, August 1-4, 2005. During that gathering, about a dozen preachers came up with a list of characteristics of Precious Blood preaching. Those characteristics are named and expanded upon in the first section of this guide.

Additional sections include reflections on and even some sample homilies used for each celebration during the mission. The samples are there as samples, not as models to be copied. Each preacher needs to find his or her own voice. The stories included in these homilies are one person's stories. Each preacher needs to use his or her own stories.

At the present time, the reflections and samples are only here for the Proclaiming Abundant Love mission.  Reflections and samples for Celebrating Unbounded Mercy will be added as we gain experience in preaching this mission.
