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 helping with Sunday Morning Fellowship or serving in our Welcoming Ministry


Sunday Morning Fellowship

Every Sunday after the 9:00 AM Mass, everyone is welcome to join us for Sunday Morning Fellowship across the street in the UCDS TEC. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee, a tasty treat, and warm fellowship. This is a lovely time to share the peace of Christ by engaging with new parishioners and visitors and connecting with families and friends in the parish.  You are also invited to stay for Sunday Forum, which begins at 10:45 AM and features a presentation on the faith by a lay member of our Blessed Sacrament community or one of our Dominican friars.  CLICK HERE for the complete schedule for Sunday Morning Fellowship this fall.  We hope you can join us!

Volunteer with Sunday Morning Fellowship!

Sunday Morning Fellowship needs YOU! If you are available to help with Sunday Morning Fellowship, we would love to have you. No minimum commitment is required. You are welcome to bring treats once a month or once a year, and assistance with set up and clean up is always appreciated. We are grateful for your help! To learn more, please contact Alison Grennan at agrennan@bspwa.org or (206)732-7344.

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.
