40 Days for Life
40 Days for Life will begin September 22nd and run through October 31st in Duluth. You can support this effort to end legalized abortion in three concrete ways. First by prayer and fasting. Prayer should always precede any of our endeavors, offering the sacrifice of fasting makes our prayers more efficacious. We can all pray. If we can't fast from food, there are many things in our daily living we can fast from for a period to offer with our prayers. The second way to assist is to be present at the site in Duluth, in the public right-of-way, where abortions are actually taking place. Your prayerful witness in the community speaks volumes, even without saying a word, to affirm dignity of all human life. A third way is to pass the information on to friends, relatives and neighbors to encourage them to get involved. You can sign-up to take a vigil hour by going to the 40 Days for Life website or calling the Duluth coordinator, Paulette Moreland. 1-218-348-1345.
Pray the Rosary!
October marks two important days in the Church. The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary followed by the anniversary of the 6th apparition of Our Lady of Fatima and the Miracle of the Sun. The importance of these days are as significant now as when they occurred in history. The Feast of Our lady of the Rosary was originally called Our Lady of Victory because of the role Mary played in overcoming the evil of that time. Our Lady of Fatima appeared during WWI asking for the Rosary to be prayed, for repentance, reparation and the conversion of sinners so that an even more devastating war could be avoided. Her merciful call was not heeded and WWII did indeed break out. Mary has given us the Rosary as a weapon against evil, and has asked us to call upon her intercession with this prayer to help us fight against the evil of our day.
In addition to praying the rosary privately and in your families, we have public recitation of the rosary before or after some of the parish Masses. Sunday nights at 7pm we also have the rosary, Cenacles of Life, to pray for our Church, our nation, our diocese, our parish, our families and those who come after us. Everyone is welcome. A plenary indulgence is granted, under the usual conditions, when the Rosary is prayed in Church, or in a Public Oratory, in a family, Religious Community or Pious Association.
Blessed Sacrament Parish needs a part-time custodian to clean the church and do light housekeeping in the parish offices. Duties include empty garbage, dry & wet mop floors, dusting, vacuuming, clean bathroom near Adoration Chapel. If you feel called to serve the Lord in this way, please contact Susie in the parish office for more information. 262-5541.

An update on the Immaculate Conception Closure
Update as of October 4th, 2021:
Please click HERE for an update on the Immaculate Conception Church dated October 2021.
Update as of November 2nd, 2020:
Update on Immaculate Conception Rectory: After four months on the market, we closed on the sale of the rectory, receiving our original asking price. The statue of the Blessed Mother from the south lawn will remain there until the Spring of 2021. At that time, she will be moved over to Blessed Sacrament. Please offer prayers for the new owner, that she may enjoy the house as much as our Parish did. We also ask for continued prayers as we discern the next steps to take with the church building.
Update as of September 19th, 2020:
Please click here to read the decree provided by Fr. James Bissonnette in regards to the reduction of the Immaculate Conception Church.: Decree provided by Fr. James Bissonnette in regards to Immaculate Conception.
Update as of July 28th, 2020:
The rectory has been on the market for roughly a month. In that time, we have had one offer that fell through. Please pray the right buyer comes along to purchase the property. With the potential for a sale, the rectory was readied to be emptied and items moved over to the Blessed Sacrament Rectory. We patiently await the installation of our new Bishop to be able to proceed with the status reduction of the church.
Here is an update of the Immaculate Conception since the closing on December 8th:
- A Letter of Reduction has been submitted to the Diocese to reduce the status of the church from sacred to profane—meaning it can be used as a secular space. This reduction gives us the ability to make decisions on how to proceed with the church building. No formal response has been received.
- Requests have been sent to local appraisers and realtors for bids on appraising the property, as well as, requesting formal presentations of how they would suggest marketing the two properties should we decide to sell.
- Kitchen items have been inventoried and categorized by: keep for use, sell, or broken and thrown out.
- Items from the church and sanctuary have been earmarked for the Side Lake Chapel.
- All sacramental items have been brought over to Blessed Sacrament for safe keeping and to be used with Sunday liturgies.
As more developments happen, we will keep you informed.
If you have been on or driven by the church campus in recent weeks, you may have noticed work being done on the rectory. We have contracted with Jerome Stanoch of Building Restoration Services to remove the chimney and repair damage done to the roof and exterior walls from years of water infiltration. Bricks on the north wall have been removed and replaced, and the column on the balcony on the east side above the patio has been demolished and rebuilt. It, too, had sustained much damage due to water infiltration. The old gutters will be replaced with large new gutters capable of shedding large amounts of water away from the building.
Once the rectory work is complete, Jerome will move to work on stabilizing and securing the guttering system on Blessed Sacrament Church. His work here should help prevent future ice damming on the roof.
This is not the first time Jerome has worked on Blessed Sacrament. He spent the summer of 2015 restoring, cleaning, and tuck pointing our bell tower. We thank God for his talents and expertise!
