Sign up for Hope for the Journey Home on May 18 – 24
During the week of May 18 - 24, our parish will be volunteering at Hope for the Journey Home, a shelter at Guardian Angels Church in Oakdale for families experiencing homelessness. Families served at this shelter come from our own communities and look very much like you and me. They attend schools with your children, serve you meals at your favorite restaurants, and may very well be sitting in the pews right here in our church. We are looking forward to furthering Christ’s mission here on earth, through service to those in need – come join us!

Welcome to Blessed Sacrament Parish
On behalf of the parish staff and members of the Parish of the Blessed Sacrament, welcome.
As disciples of Jesus Christ it is the Eucharist that binds us together as one community of faith. As part of the Body of Christ, we share in the mission of Christ on the East Side of Saint Paul. We seek to grow in our faith that we may live out in communion with and according to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church the goals of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis; to make the name of Christ known and loved and by this to foster Christian truth and love.
We invite you to celebrate the Eucharist with us which is offered every day of the week and to be an active member through participation in our various programs. Part of our journey in faith is lived out in being generous stewards of God’s blessings by offering our time, our gifts and our financial support to help promote the vision and programs of our parish community. Your presence, however, is most cherished
There are many different opportunities available within the parish to volunteer and share your time and gifts for the greater glory of God. You can contribute to our liturgical life by singing in the choir, by serving as a reader, extraordinary minister of the Eucharistic, or maybe you have a child who could participate at Mass as an altar server. You can participate in our Pastoral Ministry by visiting parishioners who are sick, hospitalized, elderly, or homebound. You are welcome to break away from the busyness of your daily life and spend some quiet prayer time in our Adoration Chapel, or even commit to an hour a week at a regular prescheduled time. Other programs and events will be announced from time to time in our weekly parish bulletin.
As a part of our commitment to Christ as his disciples we strive to offer opportunities to grow in faith through catechetical events and programs for both children and adults. The largest program of our Faith Formation is our Religious Education for children (offered during the school year on Wednesday evenings) but we offer faith enrichment for adults as well with various events that promote both spiritual and catechetical growth.
Newcomers? We invite all who are interested in the Parish of the Blessed Sacrament to contact the parish office.
