Sacraments

Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism for infants will be celebrated after consultation with parents. Parents should notify the Parish Office at least three months before the anticipated date of Baptism. Pre-Baptismal instruction is held for the parents. The Sacrament of Baptism for adults may occur only after completion of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.). Please contact the Parish Office for further information.

Reconciliation

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

If you are interested in a vocation as a priest or deacon you may call our diocesan vocation director at (716) 847-5535 or explore the Diocese of Buffalo Vocations Website for additional information.

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.
