WE WELCOME ALL FAITHS
Blessed Sacrament is more than just an educational institution, we are a faith community. We are a ministry of the Catholic Church and emphasize Catholic teachings, virtues, and traditions. However, we value diversity and a respect for all faiths. Families from other faith backgrounds are a welcome part of our school community.
In a Catholic school, all students are expected to attend and participate in prayer, the Mass, and religious education classes. During the course of the year students participate in special activities that help us celebrate the different seasons of the Catholic Church. Students celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and Easter, observe the seasons of Advent and Lent, and learn about and honor the saints, holy men and women who are role models for us in our journey of faith.
For non-Catholic students, the focus is on deepening personal relationships with Jesus Christ and developing a greater understanding between Christian churches. Our school does not try to convert students of other denominations.
We invite you to contact the principal to address any questions regarding faith development and instruction at particular grade levels.
As a Catholic school, religious study is a core part of the curriculum. Religion at BSS is not just studying Catholicism. Religious studies at BSS include learning about all major religions, including common beliefs and fundamental differences.
Students attend Catholic Mass services a weekly basis.
Students lead the mass, serving as cantors, lectors, and altar servers. (Any student who has not received the Catholic Sacrament of First Communion is invited, during Communion, to approach the altar with their arms crossed over their chest, as a sign that they wish to receive a blessing from the Eucharistic Minister.)
Catholic students preparing for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion will receive their required preparation in second grade religion class. There is no need to enroll in Faith Development. Students in higher grades who wish to participate in these sacraments should speak with the Faith Development Coordinator at

Our parish priest, Fr. Paul, actively participates in the life of the school. He leads mass each Friday.
