Whole Family Lent Event

Drop in anytime between 9:00 am and 12:30 pm on Sunday, February 26 for this great whole family event!

Prepare for the season of Lent by building a model of Calvary Hill! You’ll slowly grow grass on the hill as you water the seeds throughout the Lenten season! Join us on Sunday, February 26, anytime from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm, to build your Calvary Hill, bake a pretzel, or make a Lent craft with your kids or grandkids. 

The parish will provide one Calvary Hill model for each family. Materials for additional models are $6 each.  Register below and indicate how many sets you would like so that we can have enough materials for everyone. Pay on our parish online payment page, or by cash or check when you arrive. Contact Corinne Cathcart with questions. 

Check out the activity here!

Check out how Laura’s family from the “House of Joyful Noise” blog created this model!

The Creeds

Please join us on March 1 at 7:00 as Edmund Stark helps to illuminate the beauty of the creeds and the glory of God by walking us through the evolution of the fundamental belief statements of our faith. Edmund will begin with the Scriptural references that lead to the earliest of creeds, through the development of the Apostle’s Creed, and then explain why the Nicene Creed was a necessary next step.

Please register by February 27.

Game Night Fun!

Blessed Sacrament’s first game night was a success!

Our Blessed Sacrament Parish family came out to play at our Parish Family Game Night on January 20!  We were thrilled to see close to 100 people join us for the evening. Folks enjoyed foosball, ping pong, corn hole, and other yard games in the gym. Bingo was such a huge hit, we kept the game going into overtime! A couple of people told us this was the first time they had ever played Bingo! We saw games of Scrabble, Uno, Clue, and pinochle, and even a game of Twister played by some of the younger attendees!  And we for sure saw smiling faces everywhere! 

Matt & Laura Allington take on Fr. Rob and Fr. Jack at the Euchre tournament!

Everyone enjoyed sloppy joes, pizza, and a potluck of snacks and desserts. The culmination of the evening was the Euchre tournament, where 20 teams (including our own Fr. Rob and Fr. Jack!) competed for the ultimate prize—a fancy new deck of cards and their names on the parish Euchre trophy! 

Congratulations to Andrew and Sabrina Gilles, who won the tournament with points to spare! We heard from so many people that it was a wonderful evening that reminded them of “the old days!” We are so very blessed to have a parish family that enjoys spending a Friday evening together here “at home,” and we can’t wait to bring this parish family favorite back again next year.  

We hope to see everyone at our next family event: The Parish Talent Show!

Theater & Theology: Chocolat

Life is what you celebrate. All of it. Even its end.
Joanne Harris, Chocolat

On February 16 from 1:00-3:30 and from 6:30-9:00 we will watch and discuss CHOCOLAT.

We hope that you will join us for a little pre-Lent treat of a good movie, a good discussion, and of course, good chocolate! You can register below, by calling the Parish Center, or by emailing Lyn Pajk.

Come and see what happens when the exotic stranger Vianne Rocher arrives in the old French village of Lansquenet and opens a chocolate boutique called “La Celeste Praline” directly across the square from the church and Father Reynaud identifies her as a serious danger to his flock.” To make matters worse she opens her shop at the beginning of Lent “For the first time, here is a story in which chocolate enjoys its true importance, emerging as an agent of transformation. Rich, clever, and mischievous, reminiscent of a folk tale or fable, this is a triumphant story with a memorable character at its heart.”

A Short History of the Catholic Church in the U.S

We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience.

– George Washington

Monday, February 6 at 10:30am and 7:00pm

Please join us as Norbert Bufka presents the history of the Catholic Church in the United States from the 1500’s until today. Moving through the centuries, he will quickly bring us to the local history of the Church in the Great Lakes Area, pinpointing significant dates and events in the Diocese of Saginaw. He will also briefly outline the unique aspects of the Catholic Church in the US and issues it has faced and continues to face. Please register below or by calling the Parish Center.

A Celebration of Marriage

“Authentic married love is caught up into divine love… Thus this love can lead spouses to God…” and in God they find the strength to carry on their roles and responsibilities.
-Second Vatican Council-

Join us to celebrate marriage!

On the weekend of February 11 and 12, Father Rob will be blessing marriages during each Mass. He is also inviting all of those celebrating “Milestone Marriages” in 2023 to a social after 4:00 Mass on Saturday, February 11. There will be simple appetizers, beverages, music, and the opportunity to celebrate with one another. Are you wondering if your marriage is considered a “Milestone Anniversary?” Even though every year of marriage lived out faithfully is a milestone to be celebrated, we are thinking YEAR 1 (often the most difficult) and then the “5’s” 5, 10, 15, 20… and any marriage that’s still going strong over 50 years. We want to be sure to have enough of EVERYTHING, so please register below or by calling the Parish Center 835-6777.
