Liturgical and Music Ministries

Liturgy at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Community is an experience of true community. Our Masses are opportunities to come together as one and recognize that God's love is with us and within us. Our liturgies are enhanced by the talents and gifts of many people - including those who welcome us, who lead us in song, and who join us in prayer.  Our ministers help us encounter His true presence.  Each one makes a true impact.
