Blessed Sacrament Parish Mortgage Burning Celebration!

What a wonderful evening, gathering together in celebration for our Church and School! Thank you to our Parishioners for your sacrifice to build this beautiful campus. We continue to praise God, with the intercession of our Blessed Mother for the grace to accomplish this goal. Genesis 2:2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.
