Let Us Pray to the Lord

Each of us need prayers throughout our lives.  Our Catholic Church teaches there are five types of prayers:Prayer of  Blessing and Adoration, Prayer of Petition,Prayer of Intercession, Prayer of Thanksgiving and Prayer of Praise.  

Our school welcomes the opportunity to join you in prayer.  Take a moment to submit the Prayer Request Form. Prayers will be incorporated into our Morning Prayer and weekly liturgies.

Traditions

Each morning, our school community begins with prayer.  

On Mondays, we gather in Church for Morning Assembly.  We feel it is important that we gather as the One Body of Christ in our campus' most sacred space.

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, Morning Prayer is recited over the school's intercom system.  Each week, a different homeroom is responsible for leading Morning Prayer.

On Fridays, we gather in Church for the Celebration of the Eucharist.  It is the most important part of the week and we look forward to sharing the Body of Christ with Fr. Jack!

Advent

This past Advent, the Blessed Sacrament Catholic School community created an Angel Tree for the Retired Sisters of Divine Providence (CDPs).  

Through the generosity of our families, we were able to provide gifts for over 100 retired sisters living at Our Lady of the Lake.   

Lent
During the Holy Season of Lent, the Blessed Sacrament Catholic School community collected 3,590 food items for those most in need. 

The project, coordinated by the National Junior Beta Club, benefited Catholic Charities of San Antonio, the Blessed Sacrament St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry and St. Alfonso Catholic Church.
