New this year!! Book studies groups by grades. In addition to learning about prayer, study groups within classes have the added benefit of helping us grow in our relationships with each other, with our child’s friends’ families, and thus foster a sense of community within our class. This and so much more can be gained by participating in a book group. Also, new this year...A family study guide with activities designed to be used with the entire family or with other families.
To learn more about any of these opportunities, please click HERE so we can contact you with more information or call the parish office at 316-682-4557.
Thank you for prayerfully considering being a part of this all-parish/school effort to help us all grow in our prayer life!

Our 2018 WISS Campaign has come to an end and though we did not make our goal of $13,000 for the less fortunate schools in our Diocese, we came very close. Our school students, with the help of parents, parishioners and staff, raised a total of $12,213.77 through numerous events such as: bake sales, carnation flower sales, candle sales, Stations of the Cross book sales, Mardi Gras bead sales, Cookbook sales, tshirt sales, guessing game as well as holding our middle school python, Monty.
Our biggest event this year, which was a new endeavor, was our Penny Wars. The Penny Wars started the first day of the WISS campaign and lasted to the very end. This event alone brought in $4,230.84. This competition was intense with our 1st graders leading the pack for the majority of the time. The last week of competition really heated up and $2,402.98 was collected in this week alone! We are proud of everyone for the participating in this event. We had fun watching the competition unfold and hearing the students strategizing among themselves on how to sabatoge the other grades. Our winning grade for the Penny Wars was our 1st grade! Way to go! The first graders enjoyed a Bomb Pop popsicle following the announcement of the winner during the Pep Rally.
The grade level competition was just as fierce with the individual events as well as the optional spirit days that were available throughout the campaign. The winning grade level, earning a pizza party, was our 5th grade! We are proud of all of our classes and their efforts in this campaign.
We wish to thank all of our students, parents, grandparents, parishioners, faculty and staff for participating in this year's campaign. We would especially like to thank, Lori & Justin Guthridge for leading this endeavor and giving numerous hours of their time counting the Penny Wars collection each weekend from beginning to end! Thank you!
Our Kindergarten through 5th grade girls joined our 8th grade cheerleaders in leading our student body in a rousing cheer to get them excited for our Spring Pep Rally!
Fr. Drew hyped up the crowd more with his run around the gym inciting the crowd! Our Spring sports team members were announced and several games were played and enjoyed by both participants and spectators!
School has been cancelled for tomorrow, Thursday, February 22nd due the inclement weather. Please stay safe. God bless.
Blessed Sacrament Catholic School is closed today due to the icy roads. Please stay safe.
Our annual Catholic Schools Week 8th graders vs. Faculty/Parents Volleyball Game was another successful event! Our 8th graders put up a good effort, but the faculty and parents were just too good! Lots of fun was had by all participants and spectators.
BLESSED SACRAMENT CATHOLIC SCHOOL IS CLOSED TOMORROW, TUESDAY, JANUARY 16TH, 2018 DUE TO THE NEGATIVE WINDSHIELD TEMPERATURES.
We had our annual seminarian/middle school dodge ball tournament today with nine seminarians as well as our three priests. Loads of fun was had by all.
Last week our Blessed Sacrament students had the opportunity to see some famous super heroes before and after school at the Douglas Street crosswalk. Our super heroes were "super vigilant" in making sure our students were safely escorted across the street and/or into or out of the school building. Our famous super heroes were "Captain America", aka Fr. Adam Grelinger; "Iron Man", aka Fr. Andrew Bergkamp; and last but not least, "Bat Man & Cat Women", aka Mr. & Mrs. Dester. Thank you to the Baron Benefit for providing this exceptional opportunity for super heroes to be present at Blessed Sacrament Catholic School!
Stewardship is the grateful response of a Christian disciple who recognizes and receives God’s gifts and shares these gifts in love of God and neighbor.
A Catholic education is one of the best gifts a parent can give their children. Our school was established to provide for this important mission of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. At Blessed Sacrament, your child will not only receive an outstanding academic education, but more importantly, they will learn about their Catholic faith daily, pray often, practice self-discipline, and learn to put others’ needs before their own. In short, we will assist you in forming your child to be a Christian disciple of Jesus Christ. Blessed Sacrament Catholic School provides excellence in education, preparing each child to learn, love and witness the teachings of Christ.
It is through the faithful stewardship of all of the parishioners of Blessed Sacrament that we are able to provide an excellent Catholic school. As stewards we recognize everything we have and all that we are is a gift from God. We respond to that gift by giving our first fruits in:
Enrolling your children in a Catholic school is a partnership among the family, the parish, and the school. A Catholic school education is a privilege, and not a right. For parishioners who complete and fulfill their annual stewardship commitments, our pastor will make a good faith effort to provide for their children’s Catholic education. Specifically, what is expected of all of the families in our parish is to:

Our Principal for the Day, 8th grader, Mr. Paddy Olson, did a great job emceeing the Fall Pep Rally on Friday, November 17th! Mr. Olson also observed classrooms and visited with students throughout the day. Way to go!
Our 8th grade students have been working on researching a saint during their religion class. Today they had an opportunity to share what they learned with other classes throughout the school by presenting their research to the younger students while in character. Great job students!
We had another awesome Veteran's Day celebration beginning with Mass honoring our veterans and a light breakfast following. Our kindergarten class sang to our guests and our 8th graders took time to visit with the veterans and learn from them.
A special "thank you" to all of our volunteers that provided our breakfast items and the Teacher Committee that organized this wonderful event.
Our Fall 2017 Parent/Teacher Conferences are well underway with 100% parent participation! Conferences are very important for teachers and parents to communicate student progress and discuss any questions or concerns so we are thrilled with the outcome!
Our 6th grade students had a great time with their science class today when they presented their volcano experiments outside.
On Wednesday, August 30th, our new students in grades 1-8 accompanied Fr. Jirak, Fr. Andrew, Mr. Dester & Mrs. Loyle to Ziggy's Pizza for our annual New Student Luncheon! The whole group of 14 students and 4 adults had a wonderful time!
Our students were astounded by the Solar Eclipse viewing that they participated in yesterday.
Thank you to Mr. Amaro for the picture of the eclipse that he was able to take from his phone.
