Welcome Josh Wopata!  Josh is our new Director of Faith Formation. 

Greetings Blessed Sacrament Parishioners:  I am very happy to be joining Blessed Sacrament to serve as the new Director of Parish Faith Formation. I was born and raised in Grand Rapids and graduated from Concordia College- Moorhead and the University of St. Thomas where I received an M.A. in Theology. I have been living in Dayton, Ohio with my family and working as a RCIA Coordinator at my Parish while continuing my studies at the University of Dayton. My wife, Anne-Marie, and our three girls (Gianna, Gemma, Bella) are very excited to be joining me in my return to northern Minnesota where we have been visiting friends and my family over the years. We all enjoy watching the Vikings, biking, BBQs and being outside in God's creation together as a family and with old and new friends. We look forward to meeting you all and joining you in your mission of "working together to make Jesus Christ known, loved and served in our families, throughout the Hibbing community and in the world."
