Hearty Welcome to our Congregational Website!
It is unusual and providential, that although our Founder was from Austria and the first five women came from Germany, we were founded on African soil, in 1885 in South Africa.
From our early beginning, the education and promotion of women and children, especially girls, have been a priority for us. Equally important is the formation of Christian families. We are also involved in health care and with marginalised people.

As we began the chapter with a special H. Mass asking for God’s guidance, so we closed with a beautiful intercultural thanksgiving H. Mass on Tuesday 12th September.
Today the 13th General Chapter gathered in Shillington presents the new elected leadership team of the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood:
Along with the new Superior General - Sr. Monica Mary Ncube cps (middle) - who was elected on Saturday, the following sisters were elected to the new General leadership team of the congregation: (from left to right): Sr. Caroline Mjomba (East Africa), Sr. Ursel Beyerle (Motherhouse, Netherlands), Sr. Walburga Ballhausen (Generalate) and Sr. Marguerite Marie Uy (Generalate).

Dear Sisters all over the world,
With great joy and thankful hearts today we announce the outcome of the election of our new general superior:
Sr. Monica Mary Ncube CPS
Sr. Monica Mary was born in Plumtree, Zimbabwe, in 1949. Since 2014 she has been the pro-vincial superior of the North American Province (NAP). From 1978-1982 she trained as a nurse in America and worked in different mission stations in Zimbabwe, e.g. Regina Mundi, Empandeni, Brunapeg and St. Joseph. In 2005 she was transferred to Canada, and has at-tained the Canadian citizenship.
We are grateful to God and to Sr. Monica Mary for her ‘yes’ to this great task as the 8th Supe-rior General of the Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood.
“Prayer was our only support and refuge within all these difficulties. Time and again I found new cour-age and new strength in prayer”. (Mother Paula Memoirs p.169)
In response to Sr. Monica Mary’s request for prayer support the General Chapter suggests that every community in our congregation takes a time of prayer or Adoration over the next month to pray for her and her new team to be elected in the coming days.
Sr. Anna Mirijam Kaschner cps, Sr. Madeleine Bouman cps, Sr. Helen Wathika cps
