Mass with Fr. Vincent

This morning, April 26th, 2024, we celebrated mass with Fr. Vincent. He talked to our students about having a comfortable bedroom of their own, and how God will have a room for us in Heaven.

We would like to thank Mrs. Lee and the Third Grade Class for leading us in prayer and reading the scriptures. A special thanks to our altar student attendants this week and Mr. James LaChance for playing the piano and preparing the students.

Farewell Mr. James LaChance!

After mass, Mr. James LaChance, Director of Music & Liturgy at Blessed Sacrament Church, announced that he is leaving Burlington after 8 years of service! Mr. LaChance worked with our students every time we had a school mass. He also served as the Spanish Music Teacher for our elementary school students and has been leading the church's Catholic education program lately.

We thank you for all the years of service and wish you the best in your next chapter Mr. LaChance! 💙💛

There is a season for everything, a time for every occupation under heaven.

It is with bittersweet sadness to announce that Mrs. Carol Kearney will retire when the school year ends. After twenty-plus years at Blessed Sacrament School, we thank her for her many contributions to the school community. Her gentle spirit and God-centered wisdom has made a difference in the lives of countless children and teachers. We wish Mrs. Kearney the best as she transitions from classroom teacher to full-time BGE (Best Grandmother Ever) and spends time with her retired husband, Scott. Enjoy your time and know that you will always have a home at Blessed Sacrament School. You will be missed! ðŸ’™ðŸ’›

Hay una estación para todo, un tiempo para cada ocupación bajo el cielo.

Es con tristeza agridulce anunciar que la Sra. Carol Kearney se jubilará cuando termine el año escolar. Después de más de veinte años en la Escuela Blessed Sacrament, le agradecemos sus muchas contribuciones a la comunidad escolar. Su espíritu amable y su sabiduría centrada en Dios han marcado una diferencia en las vidas de innumerables niños y maestros. Le deseamos a la Sra. Kearney lo mejor en su transición de maestra a BGE (mejor abuela de todos los tiempos) de tiempo completo y pasa tiempo con su esposo jubilado, Scott. Disfrute de su tiempo y sepa que siempre tendrá un hogar en Blessed Sacrament School. ¡Te extrañaremos!

Athletic Banquets

This week, we celebrated the Elementary & Middle School Athletic Banquets. Thank you to all of our coaches and players for a wonderful year of sports. All of our teams had impressive seasons! 

A special thanks to our Co-Athletic Directors, Tracy Miller and Derrick Goodman, for all of the time and love they gave our kids this year!

GOLF 2024

Practices will be at Alamance Country Club on Thursdays starting at 4:00pm with the first practice on 2/22/2024.

Practices will likely finish around 6:30pm contingent on daylight and weather. Golfers can be dropped off at the driving range located behind/to the right of the swimming pool at Alamance Country Club.

Per our agreement with Alamance we will have two coaches at all times to support and supervise.

It will be expected that the golfers follow instructions when on the range, putting green or golf courses so we can enjoy this opportunity to utilize ACC facilities.



We are limited to the number of golfers we can facilitate at Alamance but our sign up seems to align with the 6-8 golfer cap.

BSS will have two successive tee times between 4:00 - 4:30 on Tuesdays or Thursdays – Typically Thursdays.


The practice tee will be available for four players at a time from ½ an hour prior to the first tee time through the start of the second tee time. Access to the putting green/short game area will be based on availability and should be used in groups of 4 players max per station area. 

 A coach must be with the team during the entirety of the practice time and will be responsible for checking the team in for times and confirming daily activities. 

Prayer Requests

Please pray for:

Please remember in your prayers, David, brother of Abby (1st and Lizzie, Class of 2021) for his health.

Please remember in your prayers, Mr. Donald Spear, grandfather of Shannon(6th) and Caroline (3rd), for his health.

Please remember in your prayers, Olga Castillo, aunt of Ms. Asmar, as she is recovering from a stroke.
