BLESSED SACRAMENT CHURCH

WELCOME

The Blessed Sacrament Church staff and community welcome you to our parish!  We invite you to attend our masses and experience our communal spirit for yourself. Blessed Sacrament is unique because we are a Church in the round. Wherever you sit, you see a friendly face looking back at you. This provides a feeling of unity that adds to the spirit of fellowship. Information on our Church happenings can be found here on our website. 

Rev. Fr. Robert A. Gentile, Jr. is our pastor. He is assisted by Rev. Fr. John Hurley and Deacon Rev. Mr. Wendell Pennell.  Fr. Gentile's 100th anniversary gala letter to the community is a great way to get an initial glance into our pastor's history with the community.

May God continue to bless each and every one of you.

Our 13th annual GIVING TREE project is the service project of our parish’s Confirmation class. The students look forward to participating in it year after year. It is also one of our most popular and best supported parish endeavors due to YOU, our generous and amazing parishioners. Christmas is a time for giving and our parishioners have proven it again and again. Parishioners are invited to take a Christmas Wish Ornament from the trees, located on the altar of the Holy Family and purchase the item written on it. (You may take more than one ornament)  Please wrap your gift and firmly secure your ornament to the outside of the package with the writing facing out. Please place your gift under the trees by December 16th.  Gifts will be distributed to the needy of our city in cooperation with Providence Ministry.

This is also, our 9th year of collecting items for the adults being helped by the Hope Center. We are looking for socks, hats, scarves, gloves, toiletries (shampoo, soap, body wash, ect), brushes, combs, journals, writing and art supplies, and puzzle books. Our CIA Youth Ministers will be making gift bags for the residents at the Hope Center, a recovery center. Please place these unwrapped items by December 16th in the Christmas Wish Box located on the altar of the Holy Family.  Any gifts received after December 16th will have to be held until next Christmas.  Please help our Confirmation class & CIA Youth Ministers make it a huge success.  We look forward to your continued support.
