Welcome to Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church! We look forward to sharing our faith, activities, and fellowship with you. We also look forward to getting to know you and your many gifts that will hopefully be shared with us! If you have not done so already, we invite you to complete our new parishioner registration form.
Registration forms are available on the cabinet by the front doors. If you have been attending Mass and consider yourself a member of Blessed Sacrament, please ensure that you are registered. For only then, can Blessed Sacrament write on your behalf to other parishes authorizing you to be a sponsor at a Baptism, or a witness at a wedding or even have the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Marriage conferred on yourself or members of your family. Registration forms are available on the cabinet by the front doors.

MASS OF ATONEMENT
Bishop Knestout has scheduled a Mass of Atonement throughout the diocese. The Masses are an outward expression of sorrow to all victims of abuse and sorrow because of some bishops’ lack of responsibility in handling the situations. The scheduled Masses in our area are 1. Star of the Sea, Va. Beach, Friday, 12 October, 7:30 pm; and 2. St. Jerome, Newport News, Tuesday, 23 October, 7:30 pm. As far as listening sessions for the laity are concerned, some members of all parish councils will be present prior to Mass to “vent” and discuss. If you have any thoughts or feelings, please speak with one of our Parish Council members and they will relay your comments.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
Through discussions, teachings and sharing of personal stories, participants will discover the traditions and lifestyles of the Catholic Religion. Involvement is done in a thoughtful, gradual approach without any pressure to commit. As you follow your faith journey with other inquirers, and a team of committed Catholics, you determine whether Catholicism is right for you. RCIA is for persons who have or have not been baptized as Christians and who have had little or no previous religious formation. If you are interested in finding out more about our RCIA process, please contact Rev. Mr. Derek Turrietta, email@example.com. Please join us in September (after labor day) for our new session. RCIA is for all who are interested in learning more about our Catholic faith.
