Our clergy, staff and volunteers are dedicated to ensuring Blessed Sacrament continues to be a safe place to celebrate Holy Mass. As the number of people who have been vaccinated continues to increase and the number of cases has seen a significant decrease that has been sustained, we have adjusted our safety measures accordingly.
 
– Registration for Mass is no longer required
– Masks are optional
– Please keep a safe social distance, but social distance can’t be guaranteed
– If you, or anyone in your household, has symptoms or has been diagnosed with the virus please stay home.

Registration and Scholarship forms are below.

Have a birthday coming up? Perhaps an anniversary or another special celebration? Looking for a way to participate in the Mass with your spouse, friends, or family? Please sign up to bring up the gifts at Mass!

Click on the link below to go to our SignupGenius page. Scroll through to find the day/time that you’d like to bring up the gifts. Click “sign up” then check the box next to “sign up” for the time that you’re choosing. Click “submit & sign up” then follow the prompts asking for your contact information.

We’ll send you a reminder with instructions a couple of days before the day you’ve chosen. Essentially, you’ll need to arrive at least 10 minute before Mass begins and check in with the ushers (whom you should find in the back of the church). They’ll give you specific instructions at that time.

There’s no speaking and very little lifting involved, but you are bringing forth the gifts of the community – the bread, the wine, the collection – our offering to God at the Mass! This is an incredibly important role and we are grateful for your help!

Sponsorship Packet

La Sagrada Familia is a Catholic parish, located in Mexicali, Mexico, across the border from Calexico, California.  This parish has given us a real blessing in sharing its people in Christ.  We, their northern friends, have given new hope, friendship and love to many.  They are our “family” in another land and yet, so close.

Our goal is to help La Sagrada Familia in some way.  Education in Mexico is free until 7th grade and then, many expensive fees and other costs must be paid by the family.  We refer to these extra fees, etc. as “tuition”.  Higher paying job opportunities are available to students who can finish the 12th grade, complete training through a technical school or receive a degree at a university.  This equips them with the ability to live a full life and remain in Mexico.

We created a program where an individual or group can “Sponsor a Student” through support for their education.  The “tuition” cost for 7th grade through high school or technical school is $350 a year.  If a student goes to the University, it is $1000 a year.  These expenses are far more than families can even dream about at La Sagrada Familia.  You can help through sponsoring a student or contributing to a discretionary fund that assists with special “tuition”, glasses or other needs.

Your contribution to Blessed Sacrament for this ministry and outreach program is tax deductible and will be included on your annual statement.  For those individuals, families or groups who wish to sponsor a student, you will be greatly rewarded with the experience.

Help give a child an education.  We have experienced so many young people who have finished high school, received a bachelor’s degree in education, business or engineering and those who have gone on to graduate school in Master programs, Law or Medicine.  There is so much to be learned, given and shared by everyone.  God has given us a task, a real calling to help his children.
