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.

OUR ANNUAL MINISTRIES FAIR

If there is anyone interested in joining a Ministry, NOW is the time to sign-up. If you are already on a Ministry team and would like to continue with that Ministry, NOW is the time to sign-up. Each Ministry will have a representative after each of the Masses to welcome you to the Ministry and to answer any questions regarding that particular Ministry. Not registered in our parish and want to help? Members of our parish council will be there to welcome you and to assist with our parishioner registration forms.
St. Mary’s Casserole Program to Benefit the St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen!
Don't forget to sign up during our Ministries Fair this weekend, 23/24 September!!
St. Mary’s Basilica in downtown Norfolk has a Soup Kitchen that provides over 150 full meals three times a week. About 7 years ago the Justice and Peace committee began the St. Mary’s Casserole Program to help provide meals to the soup kitchen to allow individuals and families a way to help the hungry that are part of our city. Some of our parishioners have been faithful to serving in this ministry, but over time many have moved or are unable to continue with this ministry and we are in need of new members willing to help the soup kitchen!
The program is simple. Our parish provides you with a 13” x 9”aluminum pan and lid and three different recipes. You then cook the recipe at home; freeze and place in freezer at church either on a monthly or quarterly basis. If for some reason you cannot make one of the recipes, just make the one you can. Thanks for your interest! I appreciate your time and energy! If you have any questions regarding this ministry please contact: Marybeth Dixon, email@example.com.

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, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please join us on Wednesdays, beginning 13 September, from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm for our new sessions. RCIA is for all who are interested in learning more about our Catholic faith.
Join Blessed Sacrament’s Adult Faith Formation in September (beginning Wednesday, 13 September at 6:30 pm). We incorporate directed video samples, lively small group discussion, and fruit of the vine libations. The class sessions are one hour and free child care is provided.
Blessed Sacrament's LIVING OUR MISSION capital campaign to benefit Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and the Diocese of Richmond was a tremendous success! Our parish goal was $ 511,000. Due to the generosity of the parishioners, we raised $ 920,133.75! Thank you to everyone who made a pledge to this most important capital campaign.
