A FRANCISCAN BENEDICTION

May God bless you with DISCOMFORT... At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships,
So that you may live deep within your heart.

May God bless you with ANGER... At injustice, oppression and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with TEARS... To shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and turn their pain into JOY.

And may God bless you with enough FOOLISHNESS...
To believe that you can make a difference in this world.

Blessed Sacrament Parish is located on the corner of Reeves Road and North Road in Warren, Ohio. It was founded by Reverend Arthur Nist on July 10, 1959, to serve the spiritual needs of some 400 Catholic families in the Northeast Warren and Howland area of Trumbull County. Presently the 1250 member families worship in a contemporary worship space dedicated in 1997.

The present pastor, Reverend Thomas Eisweirth, and a staff of competent lay ministers share the task of pasturing the parish with the Parish Pastoral Council and a variety of commissions and committees. In the spirit of the Second Vatican Council, the parish seeks to develop in its members a spirit of stewardship and service, through vibrant worship experiences and a variety of ministry opportunities. The parish also hosts Warren’s John F. Kennedy Catholic School lower campus, with 250 students in pre-school through sixth grade.
