Guest Speaker
Sally McCuen presenting
The Lord’s Prayer – Much More than a Memorized Prayer

Come and join us, along with guest speaker Sally McCuen, and discover aspects of this familiar prayer that you never knew, even after praying it all these years. You’ll also learn how Jesus’ instruction on the Our Father prayer can help you get closer to God.

Jesus gave the disciples simple, yet profound words to pray to God. But how often do we mindfully utter the words of The Lord’s Prayer? Do you ever ponder and explore the spiritual depths of this prayer?

Sally’s presentation will offer us a wonderful opportunity to explore the Lord’s Prayer so that we dare not only to pray it but also truly dare to live within it.

When: Saturday, October 28, 2023
Time: 8:30 am – 12 pm (lunch follows)
Where: Blessed Sacrament Parish

What is Men’s Morning of Reflection?

It’s your chance to come and be with other men who, like you, are striving to be good men in the world.  We have unique challenges as catholic husbands, fathers, brothers, sons, grandfathers… you name it.  Doesn’t matter whether you are married or single, employed or retired. 

These typically occur twice a year on a Saturday morning at the parish center.  There’s a guest speaker for a given topic and you get to just listen, and if you want, talk with a few guys at your table. 

Regardless of the topic, we don’t get a lot of chances to be around other men who are just trying to be a little better at this Catholic man thing.

Coffee and donuts are provided and if the event goes til noon we usually provide a free lunch.


CROP Hunger Walk

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me…

~Jesus

What are you doing on Sunday, October 1st at 2:00 pm? Would you like a way to visit with friends, make NEW friends, enjoy the outdoors, get exercise, AND change the world?

Come walk with us in the CROP Hunger Walk to raise funds to fight hunger in our community and around the world.  When you walk, you are walking in solidarity with people around the world who are walking daily for food, water, and firewood.  Solidarity is part of our Catholic Social Teaching.  The walk begins and ends at Farmer’s Market Plaza by the Tridge. We have a Blessed Sacrament Team and plan to meet at 1:45 pm so we can all walk together. If you can’t make the walk, then please consider making a donation. To learn more about CROP, to sign up to be part of the team, or to make a donation, click the button below.

If you have questions, please contact Christy in the Faith Formation Office.

Get ready to “BEE the Change.”

The Chosen

You won’t want to miss this!

At each of the eight Thursday afternoon sessions, we will watch an episode of the crowd-funded series, and enter into simple conversations about the lives of the people who encountered Jesus and how the encounter changed them. We will also take time to reflect on how the story relates to our own faith stories.

The first gathering is on September 14 at 1:30 pm at the Parish Center.
