This fall the Pastoral Council sought to refresh our parish logo.
The logo symbolizes the name of our parish Blessed Sacrament and the body and blood of Christ.
The cross of Christ is displayed as a central element.
The Eucharistic wine or blood of Christ is red with nails piercing within.
The Eucharistic bread or body of Christ is in gold. In the top left there is one unbroken host while the other three quadrants house broken hosts. The broken bread symbolizes Christ’s broken body on the cross, the broken Eucharistic bread we share in communion at mass and all the parishioners of Blessed Sacrament Parish who are broken and shared with the world as a Eucharistic community, the Body of Christ.
Dear parishioners and friends of Blessed Sacrament Parish,
I love the autumn season; the smells, the changing of the leaves, the crisp air. It is a season of harvest and gratitude.
This weekend we celebrate as a society Thanksgiving. We have so much to be grateful for. All good things come from God! We lift up in thankfulness our families and friends, our homes and the food we share on the table. We offer praise for creation and all that is beautiful in the world. We are grateful for our faith and the Lord Jesus. There is so much more I know you bring in thankfulness.
I am grateful for our parish. Blessed Sacrament is a great gift for me. The parish is life-giving, the people are friendly and fun, the music is great and there is a Transcona Spirit that can only be understood by coming to mass and experiencing it for yourself.
I extend a warm and joy filled Thanksgiving to all of our parishioners and friends. Let us each lift up a harvest of praise to God.
Fr. Kevin Bettens
