This year, Blessed Sacrament Parish is celebrating the 57th anniversary of our School. As with most parishes, the school is our largest and most vibrant ministry.
We here at Blessed Sacrament are blessed to have had the privilege of working with so many talented and gifted students throughout these 57 years. Many of our former students have gone on to enjoy great success, and many have had great impacts on our society. It is always a joy to hear many of them credit Blessed Sacrament School for having provided them with an excellent spiritual and academic foundation.
We have also been blessed to have had such wonderful parents who recognized the value of a Catholic education. Their vision of what they wanted for their children, and the sacrifices they may have made to make that vision happen will always serve as great examples to their children.
In celebrating this magnificent milestone, we must also recognize the faculty and staff of our school. Their vision and hard work continues to provide an academic and spiritual balance that gives our children the best chance to succeed in their lives ahead.
It is now time to turn our eyes to the next fifty years. These are exciting times for Blessed Sacrament. We are very fortunate to have a School Council, and a Parish Finance Council that are committed to supporting a new and bold vision for our school. While we face many challenges ahead, I have no doubts that our Parish community will embrace these challenges, and continue to move our school toward greater heights.
