Dear Blessed Sacrament Families,
Greetings from Father Max. I hope you are all enjoying your Summer days and vacation time!
I am writing these few lines on behalf of our parish to offer our sincere gratitude to Sr. Rose Marie for whom we have an open house this Sunday from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm at the Holy Family Hall. For the past 45 years and since the Foundation of Blessed Sacrament Church, Sr. Rose Marie has been a faithful Religious and dedicated employee. This year she is also blessed with 60 years of her Religious life.
As we celebrate these achievements in her life, we also thank God for her service and commitment to our Community and pray that God will continue to bless her as he begins her 'Happy Retirement' phase of life.
With Sister's and Bridget's exit, we also have a few 'entrances' and 'additions' to our Parish Staff. The following are the new Staff additions/changes beginning July 1st:
Kate Pientak – Parish Bookkeeper
Jenny Bourge – Parish Secretary and Liturgy Coordinator
Denise Bautch – Confirmation Coordinator
Sara Casher – Bulletin Editor
(Please direct all the bulletin materials to : email@example.com)
I request your patience and cooperation as we go through these transitions in the upcoming weeks. I should also mention that here at Blessed Sacrament we are blessed to have parishioners who are dedicated volunteers. Without their help, many of the events and ministries would not happen! You make things happen! Thank you.In everything we do, let us keep the simple and yet powerful motto of Blessed (Mother) Teresa of Calcutta, "Do ordinary things with extraordinary love".
Peace, Joy and Blessings,
and 60th Anniversary
Come and celebrate Sister Rose's 45 years of dedicated service to our parish and her 60 years of religious life dedicated to God and serving others. The open house is in Holy Family Hall on June 28th from 2:00 - 4:00 pm.
Everyone is welcome.
As always, leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as we can.
There will be devotions and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament after the 8:30 am Mass.
All seniors are welcome and bring a friend.
