Support Blessed Sacrament School
Like most Catholic Schools, Blessed Sacrament School faces the challenge of succeeding in an increasingly competitive educational marketplace. With tuition and fees covering just 60% of the cost of a student's education, the school relies on support from parishioners, alumni, parents, and friends to help bridge the gap between tuition income and growing financial demands. This can be accomplished by contributing your time, your resources, and your prayers to our many fundraising efforts.
An ongoing fundraiser throughout the year, the Annual Fund supports the operating budget of the school, including financial assistance for students, educational programming, technology upgrades, salaries, and maintenance and physical improvements to the campus. Gifts of any amount are appreciated!
The Father Jeff Challenge – Donors who make gifts that match or exceed the Pastor's contribution of $1,000 each fiscal year are designated as having taken the Father Jeff Challenge. We are fortunate that there are at least 30 individuals or families who participate every year.
Auction and Dinner
The biggest fundraising event of the year is our fall Auction and Dinner. Typically held at the beginning of October, this huge effort raises in excess of $85,000 for the school. There are several live and silent auction items up for bid, in addition to raffles and other great prizes.
We invite all grandparents of Blessed Sacrament School's students to join the B.S.S. Grandparents' Club. Members receive several newsletters throughout the year that keep them in-the-know about events at Blessed Sacrament School. To join, contact Kim Hoffmann in the Development Office at .
The Garden Party is an annual Blessed Sacrament tradition held on a weeknight in mid-June. This fun family celebration includes games, carnival rides, a variety of food and concessions. Volunteers are needed to assist in the following areas: planning committees, set-up prior to the event, staff the food concessions and games that evening and clean-up following the event.
M.A.G.I.C. Match offers families and businesses an opportunity to enrich our students' education by making a $500 donation to sponsor a classroom, club, or activity.

For several years, a Mardi Gras celebration has been held at the school before the start of Lent. The Mardi Gras features Cajun music and food. The proceeds of the evening support the school's Annual Fund.
