We Welcome You!
On behalf of our parish family I wish to extend a warm welcome to you on visiting our website. It is my hope and prayer that Blessed Sacrament Parish will be able to provide the support you need in your spiritual journey with our Lord. We are a vibrant, growing, and engaged community with hundreds of registered families. We work hard each day to bring the Gospel message of Jesus Christ to life through our actions and our words. It is our ardent hope that we do this well through prayer, the sacraments, and hospitality. As Pope Francis invites everyone to feel God’s warm presence and be for all people Jesus Christ, we follow his example with joy in our hearts.
Have a wonderful day and know that you are loved and held in the arms of God’s grace!
Fr. Peter Raj, Pastor

Opening the Word is a dynamic and exciting journey into the Sunday readings that will help you encounter Christ in the Scriptures, apply the teachings of the Word of God to your daily life, and live your Catholic faith in a more powerful way. Accompanying the weekly videos are downloadable guides which will lead you through a prayerful meditation on the Sunday Gospel reading using the ancient form of Catholic prayer, Lectio Divina.
