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
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.
