Weekend of Renewal For Women
May 2 and 3, 2020
Life has a way of teaching us that all of our commitments, including our commitment to Christ, need continual renewal if we are to be faithful
Registration Deadline is April 13th
Think and pray seriously about this opportunity . . .
… do you need to deepen your faith?
… do you need space for your inner journey?
… is your life out of balance?
… are you out of touch with the action of God in your life?
… are you seeking to enrich your understanding of what it means to be a Christian in today’s world?
… do you see yourself as “church”? As a disciple of Jesus?
… do you need time to listen anew to Jesus’ call?
What about the cost?
The renewal weekend is a gift from the women putting on the weekend to the women attending the weekend. Volunteers provide food and service.
Where can I get further information?
You are welcome to call the Coordinator of Adult Formation Programs 835-6777 or speak to any parishioner who has experienced the weekend.
Second grade had a great 100’s Day! We all know the importance of exercise to keep our bodies strong. So, we decided to do 10 repetitions of 10 different exercises to build body strength. We also had a “Live” word find. The students were able to go around the school with their papers and clipboards to search out 100 words. Finally, we are working on 100 Act of Kindness.
The second grade has been studying frogs. We have integrated Science and our Reading story “Frogs,” an expository nonfiction story. We have completed in-class diagrams, comparing differences of frogs and toads, and have had Mr. B. come in and share his information and pet toad, “Mr. Lumpy.”
WE LOVE READER’S THEATER!!! The second grade enjoys plays and being able to bring stories to life. The story the students acted out was “The Magic Snowman.” All students took part to recreate this wonderful story. Thank you Mrs. Pasek and Mrs. York!!!
Catholic School’s Week was great fun at Blessed Sacrament. BRAVO to our Parent School Association (PSA) members, staff, and students for making it so fantastic! Highlights included our Shine Parade, Carnival / Dance, Reader’s Theater with the Amazing Angela Pasek, and lots of yummy food and great company!
On February 23 we will be having a WHOLE COMMUNITY DESERT PRAYER GARDEN making event. Drop in any time between 9:30-11:30 am to participate. Please join us to create this interactive way of walking through the 40 days of Lent based on Scripture. What a beautiful way to mark time the Catholic way! Gathering as a community and celebrating traditions are ways that TEAM CATHOLIC practices together.
Cost: $5 – You can pay in the Faith Formation Office or online (under Faith Formation Fees)

Last Friday, during Computer Science Education Week, every class at Blessed Sacrament School participated in Hour of Code by creating their own game/program from beginning to end. The Hour of Code is a global movement to show that anybody can learn the basics of computer programing. The kids did a great job and were proud of their creations.
At Blessed Sacrament School we are able to teach computer coding basics at different levels for every grade throughout the year. This was a fun event to tie in some of the things we have learned and will continue to learn throughout the year.
Our Constitution says the purpose of Ladies of Blessed Sacrament (LBS) is to unite the women of Blessed Sacrament for common goals – Spiritual, Social and Charitable. We hit all three goals yesterday since we prayed just a little, socialized a lot, and made 50 blankets for those who have less than we do. It was a great way for all of us to feel a connection with others.
The day went smoothly thanks to the advance work of Anne and her team. We completed 50 lovely blankets between 9 and 3. I originally thought we were the Henry Ford assembly line but in his model the work moves and the workers stay in one spot so forget Henry. The blankets stayed where they were laid out but the workers moved from blanket to blanket. All I did all day was move from table to table tying. That worked for me. Others may have laid out the blankets and cut in addition to tying.
We had plenty to eat & drink. The pizzas were a great idea. Thanks to Tana or whoever decided on that and thanks to the person who picked up the pizzas. Maybe add on a note to this message how many pizzas were ordered so we have a record for next year. It seemed like the perfect amount.
Thank you, Linda, for making all the heart patches.
Thanks to Chuck for sharpening scissors.
Thanks to Tana, Eilleen, and others for welcoming new volunteers & making all volunteers feel accepted.
Thanks to Judy for being the spirit who kept us going. You were missed!
Most of all, thanks to Anne for chairing this event.
