"EACH VISIT TO ME IS AN ACT OF FAITH, OF LOVE... COME TO ME OFTEN, SO THAT I MAY SHOWER MORE OF MY GIFTS UPON YOUR SOUL."
A Growing Diverse Community
Community is crucial to parish life and with Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church being the home of such a blessedly diverse and culturally rich community, our parishioners breathe life into the parish. Through the religious education of faith from every stage of life, to the ongoing practice of the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church; our parish as a family, joyously and passionately celebrates the epitome of the Catholic Faith through the Holy Mass. So join us, we promise its good for the soul.

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, "Take and eat; this is my body." Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins."

Bicentennial Prayer of the Diocese: Father of lights, the radiance of your son has guided the advance of the Gospel across the Diocese of Richmond for two centuries, strengthening our Church from the Eastern Shore to the Cumberland Gap. Grant that the nearness of your son may dispel the darkness of our sins, so that as our love increases more and more, we may dare more than ever to fearlessly proclaim the word. Holding fast to the word of life, may we shine like stars in the world. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, you Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
