BLESSED SACRAMENT CATHOLIC SCHOOL, Is now Enrolling and Accepting Applications for the 2020-2021 School Year!
Catholic schools are very successful in providing an excellent education and spiritual formation for children. This can be attributed to the high level of involvement, commitment, and dedication on the part of our parents, faculty, administration, and parish community.
At Blessed Sacrament Catholic School, our devoted teachers are well-educated, experienced, and caring. Our students are guided daily by the principles of their Catholic Faith — love, respect, and compassion — as they interact with those around them. Our parents are dedicated to ensuring that our school continues to prosper. In the classroom, the playground, the office, and the cafeteria, we pride ourselves in making Christ’s love visible throughout the entire school. For more information, visit the Admissions page on Blessed Sacrament’s website!

Beautiful Mercy includes contributions from Pope Francis and many other incredible authors. It was published in 2015 which the Pope deemed The Year of Mercy. The book is ‘an invitation to rediscover God’s unconditional love so that we can share it with others.’
Our Zoom book study will continue: Wednesday, May 20th at 1:00 pm
To participate, email Maria and Bob Dvorak at email@example.com. Pick up your book at the Welcome Circle at church, your books will be in an envelope with your name on it, which is open M-F from 10:00-2:00. (You will be informed when your book is ready to be picked up. You may not have it for your first meeting, however you will still Zoom on those dates).
If you have a library card, the book can be borrowed in a digital version from Hoopla. Go to the Grace A Dow library website to find out more about this wonderful resource.
