Welcome to our Catholic Community
Blessed Sacrament and Saint Boniface are two vibrant parishes serving Catholics in Rochester, N.Y. Together with our partner parish, St. Mary’s Church in downtown Rochester, we welcome you to our active faith communities! We offer many opportunities to help you grow in your Catholic faith, as well as informal gatherings to provide fellowship and friendship. Click here to learn more about each parish and how we got to where we are today. Thank you for visiting our site. We look forward to seeing you in church!
Volunteer CASE Training
Anyone who volunteers on behalf of our parishes is required by the Diocese to be trained in abuse prevention. Creating A Safe Environment or CASE training, is important so that we can assure an environment where children and vulnerable adults are safe from abuses of any kind. The Diocese requires current volunteers to re-train every three years.
If you volunteer on behalf of Blessed Sacrament or St. Boniface at nursing homes, make home visits, are a communion minister, work in youth ministry (projects, trips, sports), school partnerships or tutoring; bible camp, catechists or Liturgy of the Word for children; you may need to renew your certification. Please try to attend the following training session:
- Blessed Sacrament – Sunday, August 2
11:15 am – 1:00 pm in the Blessed Sacrament School
Please contact Sue Howard at 271-7240, to register or if you have any questions. Online training is available if you are unable to attend one of the above sessions.
