BLESSED SACRAMENT PARISH HISTORY PROJECT

In April of 2020 an historical anniversary will occur. Blessed Sacrament Parish can trace its roots back to April 13, 1895, when the first Roman Catholics in the town of Throop officially organized. There is hope that the 125th Anniversary in April of 2020 can be celebrated by putting together a Coffee-Table Style Photo Book of the four former Parishes of Throop, and of Blessed Sacrament Parish (which was formed in December 2009). This project is in the preliminary stages. There will be a meeting in the Spring to gauge Parish interest. The Holy Name of Blessed Sacrament has graciously decided to support this undertaking. More information in the Spring!
