Please contact the Parish Office for further information.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated weekly in the room to right of Altar on Saturday from 3:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. First Reconciliation at Blessed Sacrament generally takes place in the second grade. Parental participation is required. Please contact the Parish Office for further information.

Eucharist

The Liturgy of the Eucharist is performed at all daily and weekend masses.  First Eucharist at Blessed Sacrament is generally celebrated in the third grade. Parental participation is required. The Eucharist can be brought to people who are home-bound by a parish priest, deacon, or an Extraordinary Minister of Communion by prior arrangement. Please inform the Parish Office if anyone in your family is unable to participate in the Liturgy of the Eucharistic for an extended period of time.

Confirmation

Confirmation at Blessed Sacrament is generally celebrated in high school, after a period of preparation. Sponsor participation is required. Please note that the Sponsor must be a practicing Catholic and have a letter of recommendation from their own pastor, if they are not a member of Blessed Sacrament Parish. For adults, depending on their level of Catechesis, they may receive the sacrament of confirmation only after participation in the adult Christian initiation process (R.C.I.A.) or in a number of preparation sessions.

Matrimony

Marriage preparation includes a pastoral prenuptial investigation, completion of an approved marriage preparation program, and planning of the wedding liturgy. The engaged couple must be practicing Catholics, or if only one individual is Catholic, that person must be a practicing Catholic. The prospective bride and groom must have made arrangements for their wedding at least eight months before the wedding date. No weddings may be scheduled at or near, the times set for parish liturgies (i.e., confession, Saturday afternoon Mass, etc.).

Anointing of the Sick

Originally know as Extreme Unction, this sacrament celebrates the gift of God’s healing to those who are physically, emotionally or spiritually unwell. No one who is chronically ill or anticipating surgery should postpone receiving this sacrament. It is offered to the homebound by calling the Parish Office at 884-0053. We also celebrate the Anointing of the Sick during the 4:30 PM Mass on the First Saturday of each month.

Sacrament of Holy Orders

Prayers


Our Father

 

Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

 

Hail Mary

 

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.
Amen.
