From the Pastor’s Desk

It has been my privilege and blessing to have worked with the parish council over the years.  Much has been accomplished and the parish has been served well through their commitment.  It is time, however, to form a new parish council for Blessed Sacrament.   Tim Yessman informed me that he can no longer serve, at the current time, as President of the Parish Council.  Over the next months, I will be discerning who should replace Tim’s role on the Council and the manner in which the Council itself should function as an advisory group to me.  A new council will have the challenge of looking into the future as we continue to give witness to Jesus in the community of Martinsville.  I must also discern how the composition of the Council should be amended in order that I may receive a broader array of viewpoints and opinions from the Parish community.  Again, I cannot adequately express in words my gratitude to each member of the Council for your faithfulness to our Parish and its parishioners.


Marcella will be retiring this week from her position as secretary here at the Rectory Office.  The Rectory Office will be closed and we will have just one Office at the Parish center.  This will help to serve the community without any confusion as to which office is to be used for what.


Finally, we will be setting up electronic giving on our web site with “Parish Pay.”  More info will be coming on this but it will be an opportunity to use credit cards and bank transfers in the support of Blessed Sacrament.

God Bless,

Father Rick
