Greeting for Fifth Sunday of Easter, 14 May, 15 May 2022 
Greeting for The Fifth Sunday of Easter, Good Afternoon/Morning and Welcome to Blessed Sacrament Catholic Community. This weekend we celebrate The Fifth Sunday of Easter with our Celebrant Father Eliseus.  As we said last weekend, our Second Collection is The Spring Combined Collection. “Supporting ministries via the Spring Combined Collection is our opportunity to put our faith in action. When you answer the call, you build up the Church so that it will continue to minister to all for generations to come.” - Bishop Alberto Rojas. Spring Combined Collection donation envelopes are at the end of each pew. Please prayerfully consider supporting this year’s 2022 Spring Combined Collection as an act of mercy and charity.   Our Ushers will continue to direct us during Holy Communion beginning with those in the front pews. Please Maintain the 3ft. distance, and remember to use hand sanitizer before you leave your seat.  Those of us receiving Communion on the tongue please remain seated until directed by an Usher to come forward.  The Ushers will continue to dismiss us beginning with the pews at the back of the church.  Our collective quiet moments before Mass are an opportunity for reflection and silent prayer. The Lord is constantly laboring to love us and speak to us. In order for Him to enter more fully into our lives, both time and space are needed. He indeed gives us that time and space before Mass. Please take full advantage of this tremendous gift of quiet reflection and silent prayer.   ​Announcements for  the Fifth Sunday of Easter , 14 May, 15 May 2022 ​​​Announcements for The Fifth Sunday of Easter As we said in the Greeting, our Second Collection is for the 2022 Spring Combined Collection.  The Combined Collection will support the following ministries: Catholic Relief Services Catholic Communication Campaign Peter’s Pence Catholic Campaign for Human Development  We have all heard the saying “the family that prays together, stays together.” Please join us on Thursday, June 16th from 6:00 to 7:30 PM for a showing about Fr.

We thank you for supporting the Blessed Sacrament Scrip Program. Our Ushers will dismiss you at the end of Mass, from the back to the front.  As a way to protect our Parishioner's health and safety, we wipe down high-touch areas between each Mass. If you would like to help us, please see one of the Ushers at the end of Mass. As a reminder, our announcements are posted to the door of the church  office, on the bulletin board on our patio, and on the Blessed Sacrament Website. ​​Mass Intentions for Divine Mercy Sunday, 23 - 24 April 2022, Mass Intentions for The Second Sunday of Easter, For the safety and protection of our servicemen and women deployed overseas, especially in the neighboring countries of Ukraine.
