Thank you for your support of this year's annual Hope Appeal. With your generosity, we made our goal at Blessed Sacrament Church!

 

 

CAUTION from Fr. Yagaza, Please Read!

A number of our parishioners have been receiving e-mail or text messages (sms) with my name letting them know that I am at the meeting and requesting them to buy music cards from Amazon for my patients. I want to inform all the public that I have never made such a request and I will not make such a request. Some con people are trying to misuse my name for their gain. Kindly when you receive such messages, ignore them.

Fr. Severine

From John Macko, Minister to the Elderly and Homebound 

I wish to thank the Confirmation students, Donna Hurn, and Lisa Coppola for the time expended to put together Christmas bags for some of our elderly parishioners. The students brought in various items and other items were given from the Outreach program. Special thanks to Janice Corcoran for her Outreach donations. These bags will be delivered just in time for Christmas. Truly, this is the beautiful season of light, love and service as we celebrate Christ Child's birth.

Mass Intentions:

If you are having a weekend Mass at Blessed Sacrament Church celebrated for a loved one and you would like to bring up to the altar the Eucharistic gifts, please see one of the ushers prior to the start of Mass.

Blessed Sacrament Church Immaculata Award Recipient for 2023:

CHRISTOPHER SHEPARDSON

In every parish there are parishioners who are the "unsung heroes" who quietly provide their support, resources, time, talent, and treasure. Chris Shepardson, our next-door neighbor to Blessed Sacrament Church, is one such humble person. Chris is an alumnus of Blessed Sacrament School. It was here - and with his parents' role model - that Chris developed a keen sense of service to his community and parish. Whenever our parish is in need of advice, financial support for a project, or to simply roll up his sleeves to add a helping hand, Chris is there in a heartbeat. Chris would humbly be the behind the scene person to support our parish endeavors such as being the main person for setting up our live streaming/ taping of holy Masses and special liturgical services. Chris would generously provide resources for our parish gatherings over the years. Chris would be seen mowing the church grounds or removing deep snow with his Bobcat snow remover. Each year our parishioners are provided a yearly religious calendar, compliments of Shepardson's Funeral Home, due to Chris' generosity to Blessed Sacrament Church. In memory of his father, Tom Shepardson, Chris established a school scholarship to aid our young students at Blessed Sacrament School. This is just a sampling of the countless ways Chris Shepardson provides service to our faith community. Blessed Sacrament Church is proud to announce that Christopher Shepardson is this year's lmmaculata Award recipient. The lmmaculata Award ceremony is December 10, 2023 at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception at 2:30 pm. The public is invited to attend this event. Join us in congratulating Chris as he humbly accepts this prestigious award from Bishop Douglas J. Lucia.

27th annual Parish Clean-Up Day

Fr. Severine and Bobby would like to thank all the workers that came last Saturday for the 27th annual Parish Clean-Up Day .  We had a great turn out and everything went "smooth as silk".  The gardens around the Church, Convent and School look great after all of the work from the volunteers that moved 16 yards of mulch.  We had many families as well as individuals that came to make the work load and easy one.  Many of the First Communion students also came and did some special planting in the garden between the church and school.  Directed by Mrs. Hurn their garden look awesome.  The grounds will look great all summer thanks to your help.

TANZANIAN NIGHT – THANK YOU

 

Dear Friends,

I can’t THANK YOU enough for your generosity and support to the “Tanzanian Night 2022” event this past Saturday. It was a blessing to meet old and new friends at the event. Thank you for your love and faith in Christ. Thank you for your love of vocations to priestly and religious life. Thanks to our many volunteers from all our local parishes who contributed their time and energy in planning and executing the event. Thanks to all of you who attended the event and brought the joy of Christ. Thanks to all of you who made generous contributions of baskets for raffles and financial donations. The event raised about $10,000.00. The funds we raise up from this event will be used to improve the quality of living quarters through the construction of a new dorm and remodeling of the old dorms for our 270+ seminarians at Soni Seminary School in the Diocese of Tanga in Tanzania. On behalf of Soni Seminary School community, I THANK YOU all. God bless. Fr. Severine.
