For more than 160 years, the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood of O’Fallon have kept a community that finds its mission in the Church. Rooted in the Eucharist and personal prayer, they strive to continue the mission of Jesus and to experience Christ’s redeeming presence as they affirm and empower one another and those they serve. They seek to bring the reconciling presence of Jesus to the world through various ministries.

Death Penalty Statement 

Impelled by our mission of reconciliation and our desire to follow the nonviolent ethic of life from conception to natural death, we, the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood of O’Fallon, Missouri, seek justice and mercy for all people.  We believe that capital punishment is an affront to the sacredness of life and should be abolished. To express words in action, we, Sisters and Partners, will engage, corporately and individually, in activities that will move toward the goal of ending the death penalty in our nation. Together we will work to promote a justice that brings healing and growth to both victims and perpetrators.
