During classes on November 13, 14, and 15, we will be having our family retreat. Parents join their children to learn more about prayer and the way God guides us when we share our lives with Him. We will meet in the Hall and then your families will independently go through stations on prayer using a Prayer Passport Let's go on this prayer adventure together!

Our Program's Mission

The Blessed Sacrament Parish offers a family-based faith formation program rooted in the Gospel and geared toward application. The lessons pull from the upcoming Sunday readings and offer children ways to connect their faith to situations they may experience in their daily life at school, with their friends, or within their family. We also follow a program for students preparing for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion, teaching on the significance and meaning of the Sacraments. As a faith formation program, we share and reinforce the Truth that God desires a personal relationship with each one of us and that relationship is something we should always grow and nourish.

"Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?" - Matthew 6:26

Prayers & Teachings of Our Catholic Faith

Check out this link to the list of the Prayers & Teachings of Our Catholic Faith for Grades K-6.  Catechists teach the kids these prayers in class, and we also ask that families teach them at home. As kids memorize these treasures, more importantly, they learn the meaning behind them.
