As a parish, we are committed to working together to make Jesus Christ known, loved and served in our families, throughout the Hibbing community and in the world. We are also committed to live as the Lord taught, drawing inspiration from the scriptures and strength from the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Our parish strives to nurture spiritual growth, share the gifts God has given us, and invite others into a relationship with Christ.
We are One Body, One Spirit in Christ.

Blessed Sacrament’s 20-21 Year-End Financial Statement has been mailed to parishioners. If you have not received one, please contact the parish office. In reviewing the statement, the parish concluded the fiscal year in the positive. Ending the year in the black is largely due to the sale of the Immaculate Conception rectory and the Payroll Protection Program Grant we received. This extra ordinary income, along with your continued generous contributions, has helped carry us through a very difficult time. Without your continued support, the parish’s year-end financial position would look very different.

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 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:
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!
