There will be a second collection this weekend for the Catholic Home Missions Appeal.
AIR CONDITIONER REPLACED
The project has been completed and we now have a modern system that will be more capable, more reliable, quieter, and much more efficient then the one that served us since 1961. Thank you for your patience.
We will have our spring workday on Saturday, May 6th following the 8:30 a.m. Mass. There will be work inside and outside of the Church.
Opportunities for First Confession will be offered after the 10:45 a.m. Mass on 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.
