“The life of a living body is in its blood,” we read in Leviticus 17:11. We have the opportunity every day to donate that which is most precious to us, a portion of our life, our blood, to others. Because we will never know who receives it, it is the ultimate gift. One could even see it as an imitation of Christ, who poured out his Blood for us.
As part of the jubilee/celebration of their 200th anniversary in 2015, the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, who minister in this parish, are organizing a blood drive and we hope the parishioners of Region 7 will participate. Our founder, St. Gaspar del Bufalo, once said that he wished he had a thousand tongues to proclaim the Precious Blood of Jesus. We want to gather a thousand units of blood during our jubilee year as a way to thank God for the blessings he has given us, and to share those blessings with others in need.
This provides you with the basic information needed to set-up a blood drive in support of the 200th Anniversary of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood.
