Blessed Sacrament Academy programs offer opportunities for families and youth who have come to the brink of giving up. We have experienced that our world is better when we work together to give vulnerable families and youth the chance to get off the merry-go-round of dependence and need and give them the tools to become contributing members of our society as expressed by our re-founding energy in the 1990s.
