Most Precious Blood Catholic Church was established by Bishop Thomas Wenski in April 2005 to serve the growing Catholic Community in Oviedo and East Seminole County. The late Pope John Paul II designated 2005 as the Year of the Eucharist, calling upon all Catholics to honor and respect God’s gift of the Eucharist, to receive it more faithfully, and to reflect upon the meaning of the Real Presence of Christ in our lives.
Bishop Wenski chose the name of our parish in honor of the Eucharist. At every moment of every day, Mass is being celebrated somewhere in the world. We rejoice that the name of our community, in honor of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, is prayerfully remembered at all times. Our first Mass was celebrated on April 24, 2005, the same day that Pope Benedict XVI was installed as the Pontiff of the Catholic Church.
We are incredibly blessed to have a vibrant and growing parish with over 2200 families currently registered and many new families joining us every month. With the assistance of the Diocese of Orlando Synod, we discerned the Mission of our community which continues to lead and inspire us to be disciples…
Empowered by the Eucharist,
we humbly commit ourselves
as a welcoming community
to grow in faith
and share Christ’s love
through our joyful witness
and selfless stewardship.
Our humble beginnings…
Ingrid Bryant tells about the journey to Most Precious Blood
In the mid 1990’s, Dr. Carlos Velez, currently a parishioner of Most Precious Blood, formed a Hispanic Catholic community called Grupo Shalom that served the spiritual needs of Oviedo, Geneva and Chuluota Hispanic Catholics.
