In Memoriam

Sisters are Forever

There are many things that make our community of Sisters special. Our Precious Blood spirituality, our prayerful devotion to the Holy Eucharist, and the work we do to help the overlooked, downtrodden, and less fortunate members of society all combine to create a truly unique and impactful religious order. But community is about people, and without our Sisters, there’s no community to speak of.

Our history is written by our Sisters, and new chapters are drafted every day. It’s the faith, friendship, dedication, and humor of the talented women who join our Congregation that carry us forward in our mission to be a life-giving, reconciling presence in our fractured world. We honor those who have enriched our lives by dedicating theirs’ to serving God, and each other. We know we will see them again.

“If … I shall find mercy before God, I hope to contribute to this good work even in eternity.” – Mother Maria Anna Brunner, Foundress, Sisters of the Precious Blood of Dayton, Ohio
