Installation of Father Damian Jaje

Installation Word Art

Please join us in a special celebration for the Installation of Father Damian Jaje as the  Pastor of the  Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church.      On Saturday, September 7th, Bishop Michael Boulette will celebrate the Holy Mass at 5:30pm and perform the ceremony during Mass.   Everyone is invited to participate in this very special event.   Following the Mass we will host a time of fellowship and officially welcome Father Damian to our parish community. Sandwiches, chips and dips and a variety of pasta salads will be served in the Parish Hall immediately following the Mass.  The Sandwiches, chips and dips, drinks and a cake will be provided by the Church.  We would kindly ask if some of the beautiful women in our parish would donate their time in providing their favorite Pasta Salad for the celebration.  Surely God will smile upon your efforts.  We would probably just need about 7 or 8 bowls in total.  If you would like to bring a pasta salad please call the Church office.    This will be a perfect opportunity for everyone to meet and speak with Father Damian.  So come celebrate with us and help us welcome him into our fine community. 

Interested in becoming a member of the Catholic Community here at Blessed Sacrament?

Join us for RCIA classes beginning Sunday September 8, 2019 at 8:15 a.m. in the Parish Hall.  Rooted from the very beginning of Church tradition, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the path for welcoming new inquirers who seek to fully realize their faith journey in the Catholic Church by Baptism, Reconciliation, Holy Communion or Confirmation.

RCIA is for 1) anyone who has never been baptized or affiliated with any church and has a desire to be a member of a church community, 2) anyone baptized in another denomination but is interested in learning about the Catholic faith, 3) any non-active Catholic who has been away from the Church and would like to get re-acquainted, and 4) any adult Catholic who would like to learn more about the Church and mature in their faith.

Classes are free and materials are provided.  Contact Gerri Garza by text at 830-200-9854 or email at
