L'Arche is a charity organization which provides care and advocates for those living with intellectual abilities. L’Arche Winnipeg was founded in 1973 by Sister Marie Paradis supported by a group of Blessed Sacrament Parishioners and fellow Winnipegers who felt inspired by L’Arche mission. The first L'Arche home was established behind our Parish Centre when the Oblate Sisters gave their home. Today there are six homes and Tova Cafe. For more info check out www.larchewinnipeg.org
Blessed Sacrament Parish continues to enjoy friendship with L'Arche and supports it's mission wholeheartedly. Enjoy some pictures from the 50th Anniversary service of thanksgiving and celebration!

After a brief break for the summer, we are back with our newsletter for the month of September. If you enjoyed the delicious Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad at the Parish Feast Day in June, check inside for the recipe!
Every week fellow parishioner Valerie W. inspired by the Holy Spirit, pens for us a poem based on the Sunday Gospel. They are great! I hope you take the time to savour them.
Since there is no bulletin this week, the poem is posted here.
We must forgive as Jesus taught
If we want to be pardoned.
Forgiveness is no option;
Our hearts may not be hardened.
Our Heavenly Father will treat us
As we treat another.
If we want our sins absolved
We must absolve each other!
Thank you to our many volunteers who make Blessed Sacrament the parish that it is. Thank you to those who give their time and talent during the summer months. Thank you to all who make Church happen on weekends. Thank you to those who maintain our yard and buildings during the week. Our parish is built on volunteers. Know that you are appreciated. Thank you!
