The Knights of Columbus Council 5260 is sponsoring a Membership Drive here at Blessed Sacrament this weekend. The Council is actively seeking ALL Catholic men age 18 and older to join our Council, along with its Brother Knights and their families in promoting and continuing our works of Charity and Fraternity. We also welcome back any former members of the Order.

Due to the HUGE success of our Friday Night Bingo Program, we are able to help in the support of ALL our Catholic schools here in Manchester, along with other Charitable Causes, including Blessed Sacrament’s Food Pantry and other needs in the parish. We are also able to help in the support of 4 of our Seminarians here in the Diocese, and much, much, more. 

Please stop by and talk to one of the Brother Knights after Mass this weekend. The Knights will have a table in the back of the church with hand-outs and contact information available. May God Bless You and Your Families.

 
A Word from our Pastor PDF Print E-mail

Fr. John J. Bucchino, ofm

As we look ahead to the coming week, it’s amazing that the Fall Festival will be upon us! Our Fall Festival Committee has worked hard to prepare a spectacular day of celebration for all. We are fortunate to have such dedicated parishioners here at Blessed Sacrament Church, putting hours upon hours of service to ensure a beautiful and happy day! The beautiful colors of autumn foliage are cooperating, as it will hopefully peak for our festival. And doesn’t the parking lot look so clean and well-trimmed just like a carpet of welcome to all our guests who will be participating. Let us not forget that the most important guest we will have on that day will be our Lord Jesus Christ. He is smiling upon Blessed Sacrament Parish because as our mission says, we are a “welcoming community of faith dedicated to serving the poor as our special purpose for being.” So it is important that we remember that whatever we do for Christ and our church is first and foremost. It should not be about us. When we turn parish celebrations or ministries into purely social events, or grasp at them like they “belong to me,” we are losing our purpose, which is to be a faith community of service and welcome. As parents know well from their experience of family life, as religious also know well from their ministries, there comes a time when we must all “let go” of our pride and possessiveness. None of us owns any ministry or work at the church, including myself. We are all called to be servant-leaders. So let us celebrate and have great joy for being members of Blessed Sacrament Parish, and never forget from where we have come: from God’s call to us at our baptism!!!                  ~ Fr. John

We are having a problem with people dropping off donated items. Please note: We ONLY accept in-season (fall/winter) CHILDREN’S CLOTHING. We do not accept household items, furniture, books, games or adult clothes (except warm goods collected at Christmas). Donations of clothing should be made during office hours, M-F, 9am-5pm. Items left in front of St. Anne’s Closet or the garage doors will be placed in the trash. Clothing should not be left outside of the closet. Bugs, insects and rodents can get into the bags and then contaminate the closet.  If you would like to donate the other items, please visit St. Vincent de Paul, Goodwill, Savers or Family in Transition.
