Faith, Hope and Love


Heavenly Father, we are your humble servants, we come before you in need of hope.  We need hope for a calm and joyful future. We need hope for love and kindness. We pray for peace and safety. In your name, we pray. Amen

Our second semester has now begun and runs through the last week of April.  In addition to our weekly Zoom classes and home study program, we will be offering three "special" classes this semester:  A Lenten lesson in February; Stations of the Cross during Holy Week and a special Tour of the Church in April! 

This is an exciting time for Blessed Sacrament Parish!  Our second graders will be making their First Reconciliation on Thursday, March 18th and our third graders will be making their First Reconciliation on Thursday, April 29th and will be receiving the Sacrament of the Eucharist on Saturday, May 8, 2021!  

Our curriculum this year is Pflaum Gospel WeekliesPromise for Grades K & 1; Good News for Grades 2 & 3 and Venture for Grades 4-6.  There is also a What the Church Believes and Teaches handbook that includes the Catholic doctrine for each grade level.  Each Gospel Weekly lesson is based on the Sunday Gospels.  The lessons connect the Gospel to the children’s lives and to the doctrine that springs from the Gospel message.  The Gospel Weeklies magazines come in print as well as digital.  It is a very family-friendly program and allows for parents with multi-grade level children to teach the whole family together. Please visit the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies website for great resources for families and teachers.

Wishing you hope, peace, health, and happiness.

God Bless,
