WELCOME to all of our visitors
We are glad you have attended Mass with us. If you wish to join Blessed Sacrament, please pick up a parish census form at the Religious Goods Counter located in the vestibule of the front entrance.
In memory of Maxine Olson, the sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of her soul from March 19th to March 25th. The sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of Chester Olson from March 26th until April 1st.
This Sunday is the Third Sunday of the month. We will have vocations prayers and a potluck lunch following the 10:45 a.m. Mass.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
We will have Stations of the Cross at 6:30 p.m. during the Fridays of Lent (2:30 p.m. on Good Friday) followed by a Lenten potluck meal. We will also have confessions following Stations. All are invited and encouraged to join us for stations, a Lenten meal, and confessions.
There will be a second collection next weekend for the Burse Club. The Burse Club helps fund the education of our seminarians.
PARISH LENTEN PROJECT
This year we will again collect various non-perishable items for the men in the Cenacolo addiction recovery center in Hanceville. For the fourth Sunday of Lent, we will collect toiletries such as bar soap, disposable razors, shave cream, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc. No mouthwash or hand sanitizer, please.
AIR CONDITIONER REPLACEMENT
We have begun the replacement of our venerable air conditioner, which was installed in 1961 and has served us for 56 years. Quite frankly, it was running on borrowed time and has struggled the last two summers to keep up with the heat. The project should be completed by late March and we will have a modern system that will be more capable, more reliable, and more efficient then the one we are replacing. Thank you for your patience in this endeavor.
Opportunities for First Confession will be offered after the 10:45 a.m. Mass on Sunday April 2nd, Sunday April 9th, and Sunday April 23rd or after the rehearsal on Saturday, April 29th. Confessions can also be scheduled with Fr Booth or may occur during any other time when confession is offered.
First Communion is scheduled for the 10:45 a.m. Mass on Sunday, April 30th 2017. If you have a child that will be receiving First Communion, please contact Fr Booth. If you are not members of Blessed Sacrament, you must obtain the permission of your pastor for your child to receive First Communion here. First Communion rehearsal will be held on Saturday, April 29th at 10:00 a.m.
PRAYER FOR RAIN
O God, in Whom we live and move and have our being, grant us sufficient rain, so that, being supplied with what sustains us in this present life, we may seek more confidently what sustains us for eternity. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
PRAY FOR OUR SEMINARIANS
Please continue to pray for our men studying for the priesthood: Deacon Josh Altonji, Deacon Brad Jantz, Connor Chandler, Chris Green, Jonathan Howell, Justin Ward, Daniel Sessions, and Charles Deering.
