Home

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.

RCIA

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, dturrietta@blessed-sacrament.com. Please join us on Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  RCIA is for all who are  interested in learning more about our Catholic faith.

PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS

Make me an instrument of your peace.

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.

O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.

A PRAYER FOR THE YEAR OF MERCY

Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us to be merciful like our Heavenly Father, and have told us that whoever sees you sees God. Show us your face and we will be saved. You are the visible face of the invisible Father, of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy; let the Church be your visible face in the world. Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord and your church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to the blind.  Amen.  Pope Francis
