It is critical that all members of the Blessed Sacrament community take responsibility for preventing the spread of illness, especially in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Mass has been cancelled throughout the Diocese of Buffalo, but at this most holy time of year, Blessed Sacrament Church will be open Wednesdays and Sundays from 11 to 1 for private prayer and devotion.

However, we ask that those at high risk of serious illness from COVID-19, because of your age or because you have a serious long-term health problem, follow CDC Guidelines and stay home as much as possible to reduce your risk of being exposed.

We will also be communicating often via email, Facebook, Twitter and here on our website.
