Parish Life

There are many opportunities for fellowship and community at Blessed Sacrament! Explore groups for children and youth, women, men, and young adults below. 

Interested in helping others connect at Blessed Sacrament? Consider serving in our Welcoming Ministry to reach out to our newcomers. 


Welcoming Ministry

The Welcoming Ministry contacts new members of the parish and assists them with orientation, direction, and registration. The Welcoming Ministry also connects new parishioners to current parishioners to build community in a number of ways. Please consider offering your gift of hospitality to Blessed Sacrament Church. The Welcoming Ministry takes little time, yet the rewards to visitors and the parish community are great. E-mail welcometeam@bspwa.org to learn more.
