As Blessed Sacrament School marks centennial, students and faculty praise its community
While Blessed Sacrament School in Washington held its 100th Birthday Bash this past fall, the school’s community has continued to celebrate its centennial by highlighting their accomplishments.
On Jan. 8, the school’s 500 students gathered for Mass at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and afterward they reflected on how they appreciate their community.
Father Percival D’Silva, a priest at Blessed Sacrament, celebrated the Mass and gave the homily. Father D’Silva asked students if they were happy to be in Mass; as he recalled, when he was in school, he was excited to be out of class when his school celebrated Mass.
He went on to explain that Jesus forgives and wants to “let us know he is our friend” and that “he wants you and me to be up there in heaven (some day). Isn’t that great?”
