New Church & Capital Campaign

Treasured Past

Blessed Future

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the treasured past of Blessed Sacrament Parish.  We know the task set before us as we seek to build our blessed future.  Watch over and guide us as we unite our talents in providing adequate facilities for worship and activity.  Hear our prayer, O Lord, and let us answer your call with open hearts and minds. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

The dedication Mass for our new church will be held Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in the new church!  Bishop Anthony B. Taylor will celebrate the Mass and a reception will follow in the parish hall (school cafeteria).  

For those unable to attend the dedication, Fr. Alphonse will celebrate Mass at 5:30 p.m. that day in the new church.

We hope everyone will come celebrate this occasion and attend Mass in our beautiful new church!



New Church Update:
Construction on the new church is going well!  The bells will be installed soon and the church is really taking shape. We are depending on everyone to please pay your pledges on time so that we can continue to pay our monthly bills.  We budgeted for this new church based on our pledges and we can’t thank you enough for your continued support and for keeping your payments current.  
The target date to be in the new church is still Dec. 25, 2018.  If you haven’t driven by, please do.  The church changes daily and it is exciting to watch as construction continues.  As always, visit the website for the latest updates and pictures of our beautiful new church!



The Building Committee will meet March 22 at 11:30 a.m. at the Church Office.  There are a few memorials left for purchase if you want to remember or honor a loved one.  Please call the church office at 932-2529.  Thank you for your continued support and prayers.  I hope you drive by our new church and celebrate our building progress!



Please join us for the Topping Out Ceremony for our new church on Monday, February 5th at 12:15 p.m. at the site of the new church on Highland. You will have an opportunity to sign your name on the last beam before it is placed permanently in the structure of the new church.  Construction continues to run on schedule.  We hope to see you Feb. 5th! 



Bricks from the old church are available for sale!  They have a name plate attached with a photo and name of the church.  Bricks are $50 a piece and we only have 100 available.  Bricks will be available before Christmas if you would like to have one to give as a gift.  These are beautiful memorials of our church.  Order and pay at the church office.  Larger memorials to be placed in our new church are available for purchase as well.  An order form will be mailed out to all parishioners this week.  If you need to update your address, please call the church office at 932-2529.  Thank you!
****CHANDELIERS FOR SALE****  If you would like to purchase one of the chandeliers from the old church, please contact John Street at 932-2529 to make an offer.  They money raised will go toward the building of the new church.
Update 10/15/17
The foundation for the church is expected to start the week of October 23rd.  Nabholz expects the foundation to be completed by the third week of November.   We are also in the process of removing the pews, stained glass windows, the organ, and the bells from the old church.  The stained glass window removal will begin this Monday, October 16th.


We also wanted the parish to know that we will have several memorials available for purchase.  If you have ever visited the Catholic Newman Center at ASU, you may have noticed that there are very small memorial name plates on things like the pews.  We are going to offer the same type of memorials in our new church.  You can purchase a memorial and have your name, or that of a friend or loved one, placed on the item in the new church.   


A letter will be sent to all parishoners explaining how you can purchase a memorial.  These make wonderful Christmas gifts and will help us offset our costs to build the new church.  Thank you for your continued prayers and support.


Update 9/12/17

The building committee asks the following of all parishioners:

  1. Please keep your pledges to the capital campaign current.
  2. If you can make your pledges early, please do so.
  3. If you have not made a pledge, we desperately need you.

The capital campaign was a success but we will have to cut back in some proposed areas of the new church because some pledges are not being paid or are late.  If anyone can pay their pledge early, that may offset some interest charges and will help us cover those who need more time making their payment.   The architects are finalizing plans and we can’t make major changes once we start building.  The time to donate is NOW.


We appreciate everyone’s sacrifices and efforts to help us pay for the new church.  This is a once in a lifetime event that we will all benefit from for years to come.  


Decommissioning Ceremony:  Sunday, October 1st at 11 a.m. at the church (no 10 a.m. or noon Mass that day). This is the last mass in our current church.  After October 1st, weekly mass will be held at the Catholic Newman Center at Arkansas State University and Weekend Mass will be held at St. Bernard's Auditorium until the new church is complete.  




Update 6/25/17

We are happy to announce that we have started the first phase of building our new church with the clearing of this property.    I also wanted to update you on the church offices.  As Fr. Alphonse has mentioned, the foyer area of the school will be modified to accommodate our church staff and their offices.  This will prevent us from having to rent a building and will keep all the church and school activities on the same property. 

The building committees are hard at work.  They met this past Monday and gave the following updates:  The design committee is finishing selections for the interior of the church.  Recently, they secured a company that will work with us so we can use our existing pews and they can build new ones to match for our additional seating.  This is just another example of the extensive effort that is being made to utilize as much of our existing church as possible.  The construction committee continues to work with the builders and architects and has also begun the planning process for the exterior landscape of the church.  The capital campaign committee is asking all parishioners to please keep current on your pledges and is also accepting any new pledges at this time.  Every amount that we receive is greatly appreciated.   In another effort to raise additional funds, we are planning to offer the opportunity for parishioners or community members to purchase new sacramental items and landscape items as memorials in honor of a loved one or family member.  The details on this offer will be coming soon.  
The decommissioning of our existing church will be held October 1st this year.  Following this day, weekday masses will be held at the Catholic Newman Center and weekend masses will be held at St. Bernard’s auditorium.  We are anticipating construction of the new church to be complete by October 2018.  Please continue to pray for our church as we move forward together.  Any questions are always welcomed by any committee member and their contact information can be found on the church website.  Thank you for your continued prayers and support.


Update 6/15/17:  Photo showing progress on our new church!





Groundbreaking Ceremony - March 19, 2017 


Update 5/1/2017

- Progress continues to be made on our new church.  The design committee meets weekly with our architects to discuss the design plans for our new church.  - As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact any member of any committee at the number/email given on this page.  

- The construction committee is also working very hard to get everything ready so we can start "digging dirt!"  We will keep you posted as that day nears.  

- We are considering the possibility of using the foyer at the school for church offices as we do not have funds to build new offices at this time.    

- Regular masses will be held after the decomissioning of our church at locations to be announced.  Decomissioning will be Oct. 1, 2017.  

- After Oct. 1 and until the church is built, Adoration will be held at Blessed John Newman Church at ASU.  

- Please continue to keep current on your pledges.  Thank you so much for all your prayers and monetary support!



Update 2/28/17

 Kyle Cook and Jeff Herron from Brackett-Krennerich Architects updated the parish on the new church plans thus far at all masses this past weekend.  Kyle and Jeff and their team have been working diligently with the parish construction and design committees to layout the plans for our new church while staying within our budget.  We are also fortunate to have parishoner, Adam Seiter, with Nabholz construction firm working on our behalf.  Every effort has been made to incorporate and preserve what we can from our existing church into the new church.  Each committee member is listed on this website at the bottom of this page.  Please feel free to contact them with your questions or concerns. 


Update 2/18/17

There will be abbreviated masses the weekend of Feb. 25 & 26 (no music or homily). Following all masses, there will be a presentation by the architects from Brackett and Krennerich to update the parish on our new church building plans.


Also, please mark your calendars for our groundbreaking ceremony for the new church with Bishop Taylor.  The ceremony will be Sunday, March 19th at 3 p.m. at 1105 E. Highland (the site of the new church and current school).   See you there!


Update 02/14/17

The building committee is meeting with Brackett and Krennerich architects on Friday, February 17.  The design and construction committees have been working diligently with the architects to create a plan for our new church that is within our budget.  A project update will be given to the building committee at the meeting and the summary will be presented to the parish.   


Update 10/23/16

Father Alphonse announced some important dates:

March 19, 2017 will be our ground breaking ceremony for the new church.  It is fitting that this day is also the Feast Day of St. Joseph.

October 1, 2017 our final mass will be held in our current chuch with a decommissioning ceremony held on this day.  It is fitting that this is also the feast day of St. Therese of Lisieux.

Bishop Anthony Taylor will be present for both events.


Also, three families have offered a matching challenge.  Every dollar pledged to our capital campaign from Oct. 21 to Oct. 31 will be matched up to $160,000.  

This is a very generous offer.  We need these additional funds to help meet our building goals.  Every dollar is appreciated!  Please consider making a donation or increasing your pledge.  Thank you!!




Over the past month, Design Committee has met regarding the following components:

Stained Glass Window Meetings:

Design Committee, Father Alphonse, Brackett & Krennerich Architects, and members of Building Committee met on September 7th with Soos Stained Glass of North Little Rock . Father and son team, Jonathon and David Soos came to Jonesboro for two meetings. At the first meeting, Soos gave a presentation of their work in restoring stained glass as well as their craftsmanship in creating new stained glass windows. Their recommendation for our project was to remove the stained glass windows and restore them. This process includes removing the old lead and cleaning the glass. They will rebuild the stained glass windows with new restoration grade lead and solder on new galvanized steel reinforcing bars. Their process will take approx. 6 months to restore our windows. From this meeting, Father Alphonse asked Design committee and Architects to meet to determine which windows we would like to use in new Church to give Soos a better idea of which to prepare an estimate. Soos Stained Glass offered to return to Jonesboro to meet with us. We met on September 26th in the Church to discuss our windows as they currently are placed in relation to the window layout in the new church. It was determined we would like an estimate on 31 of the 47 windows in the Church. The 31windows comprise the 12 Mysteries of the Rosary, the 6 Sacrament windows, the 6 windows that are the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as well as the windows of Virtues: Faith, Hope and Love, and the 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Depending on the cost estimate, we will add the other windows if feasible. The estimate has been forwarded to Chairs of the Building committee for review.

Liturgical Consultant Meeting:


Father Alphonse requested that the Design Committee research Liturgical Consultants to see how we could be assisted and if it was feasible for us to hire a liturgical consultant. On October 5th, Design committee along with Father Alphonse and Kyle Cook of B&K Architects, met with George Hoelzeman, Liturgical Consultant. He is GRH Studios located in Hattieville, Arkansas. Mr. Hoelzeman gave a presentation on the mission and scope of his work. He stressed the importance of his role was to assist us in decisions, not make them for us. He offered a fee scale based on how much we would employ his services. His information was presented to the entire Building Committee for review and approval. The Building committee voted to pursue employing the services of George Hoelzeman when the architects have completed the schematic drawings and we have a better understanding of the timeline of the construction/design phases.

Update 10/09/16:

Jeff Puryear, chairman of the capital campaign, gave an update on our progress. We have raised enough funds to build our new church at an estimated cost of 6 million dollars.  To those who have given and pledged funds to make this happen, THANK YOU!   We do not have enough to build the church offices and a parish hall.  We need 3 million more to make this happen.  However, we still have hundreds of family's who have not given and have not turned in their pledge cards.  Please contact Jeff or the church office to make your pledge!  Also, if you made a pledge and are in the position to increase your pledge, please consider doing this.  The church would incur a large expense if we are forced to try to find office space to rent.  Everyone please continue to pray for the success of this campaign.  The deadline to turn in pledge cards has been extended to Oct. 31st. 


Fr. Alphonse's Homily: Weekend Sept. 3 and 4

23rd Sunday C

Today’s gospel begins saying that Jesus was TRAVELING and great crowds were TRAVELING with him. His travel is to Jerusalem. To be handed over to the chief priests and elders, to suffer and die on the cross. The followers of Jesus, the Christians are expected to travel with him along with this great crowd. For Jesus it was the Cross and death that awaited him in Jerusalem. We, like our Master are called today to carry our cross and follow him. There is no way that someone can be called ‘Christian’ if cross is not part of his or her life. Christian Life is not cost- effective. It is very expensive. It might cost us our life.    


The comforting element in this suffering is that, Christians are not individuals. We are a family. We are a Church. We have our brothers and sisters who carry their own crosses. Sometimes they help us carry our cross. As a church we are to take on whatever difficult burden there might be, in order to follow him. We have to leave behind what holds us back, or what slows us down.


Jesus is making a point today to the people of Blessed Sacrament. It is clear and loud to us that at this time our cross is to rebuild our church and rebuild the parish. Jesus said, “who among you wishing to build a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if there is enough for its completion. Otherwise after laying the foundation and finding himself unable to finish the work, the onlookers should laugh at him and say, ‘this one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.” For more than a decade we have deliberated on our projects and have taken a collective decision. We first sat down and calculated the cost of our projects. Our old buildings are going down one after the other. If we don’t build the new ones and complete them, we will be the laughing stock of the onlookers. There is no putting off decisions we must make about our contributions. It’s not about later; it’s about now. At this point of need we should not think as individuals. It is urgent that we take up our burdens of one another. Act for the benefit of the church. We shall carry this cross as a church.


I verily understand that you might have to consider other persons such as your spouse, children, parents, etc., to make a decision if at all you want to donate or how much to contribute.  Today Jesus tells you to hate your family? He says HATE—your mother and father, your wife, your husband, in fact, of your very life. 


What’s to hate about these people? How can Jesus say that unless you hate them, you can’t be his disciple? Didn’t he command us to love our neighbors as ourselves? How can you hate your life if you love yourself? Luke uses the word HATE in an idiomatic way. It means, love your family less and put Jesus first.


Well, think of St. Thomas More who lost his position as Chancellor of England. More did not agree to sign the Oath of Supremacy declaring Henry the Supreme Head of the Church in England.  Because he took the side of the Catholic Church when Pope refused to annul the king’s marriage to his wife so he could marry another woman. Thomas More left his wife and children behind and went to prison. More was stripped off of his income and property. More’s wife children were heart-broken. More loved the Lord more than his position, his property and his family. And finally he went to his death, for love of the Lord. This is the kind of hatred the Lord is talking about. More loved his family and his life, but he let go of everything for love of Christ.


Or look at St. Francis of Assisi. Jesus told him in a vision to rebuild the chapel that was under ruins. His challenge came from his own family. His father was entirely opposed to the plan of God for Francis. But Francis cared less of his family to Love Jesus more. Jesus, stripped of his garments was mounted on the wood of the cross. Francis followed his master and stripped his garments he was wearing and threw them, when his father claimed them to belong to him.


How are we to respond to Jesus today? What is very clear from the gospel is that it costs to serve Jesus completely and utterly. Your contributions small and big are a sign of your dedicated service to the Lord. Building this church is only a sign of your building the heavenly church. We have less than a month before we wind up our Capital Campaign. We can’t go forward if you are not part of this time of blessing in the history of Blessed Sacrament Parish. Hasten and Hurry! The opportunity is yours to serve your Lord and serve your church the best way.


If you think and say, father! We have not been contacted yet! How can I help! For those people who either, were not contacted by the capital campaign committee or those who have not had time to return their calls, I am having a reception on 12th and 13th of this month in the school cafeteria at 6.30pm. Please come to any one of these receptions. Or if you feel comfortable, come to see me in my office at your convenient time, or invite me to your home; we can talk and resolve any problems you may have.


I hear that people of St. Joseph’s in Conway, a parish as big as ours, are generously contributing 10 million dollars just to build an admin building. I feel so belittled to think that we are struggling even to raise 5 ½ millions for the whole project. Don’t tell me there is no money in our parish. Our statistics show that out of more than 1500 families, a handful of 150 families have contributed until now. The equation doesn’t seem to be right. Our people are either not giving or don’t want to give. To such people I once again appeal, GIVE! The time is running out! 


Update 9/6/16:

Fr. Alphonse announced that Nabholz has been selected as the construction company to build our new church!  Also, there will be two more informational "town hall" meetings:  Monday and Tuesday, September 12 and 13 at 6:30 p.m. at the school on Highland Dr.  Anyone interested in the progress of the building and campaign is encouraged to attend.


**If you have still not been contacted by a capital campaign committee member, PLEASE reach out to them.  They may not have your correct phone number.  All the members are listed at the bottom of this page.** 

Or, call Jeff Puryear or Robert Jones:

Jeff Puryear:  870-932-0900 (phone) (email)

Robert Jones:  870-931-1700 (phone) (email)



Update 8/28/16:

We need your support!  Our goal is to have 100% participation of our parishoners in our Capital Campaign so we can build our Blessed future!  Right now, we are at about 10%.  When a Capital Campaign member contacts you, please make yourself available to them.  


The Capital Campaign Committee needs up to date address and telephone numbers for all parishioners. Please call the church office at 932-2529 if your information needs updating. Thank you for your help. This will save us time and help us reach our goal on time!  


Update 7/26/16:

 Father Alphonse's homily from the weekend of July 23-24  regarding the captial campagin kickoff, click on the link below:


Jeff Puryear is the chairman of the capital campaign committee.  His kickoff campaign remarks are as follows:




The Parish has responded overwhelmingly in favor of the Master Plan presented by the architects, so we are ready to begin the Capital campaign. 


The goal of this campaign is to contact every member of the parish to obtain your pledge for the project, so you should hear from a member of the committee over the next several weeks.  The committee is made up of parish volunteers who have important information and will answer your questions.  When you are contacted, please make time to meet with the committee member.  We need the support of the entire Parish and we don’t want to miss anyone.  If you have not been contacted, please let someone on the committee know this.  The list of all committee members and their contact information is found on the website. 


The projected cost of the project is $9M.  In addition to the money we will receive from St. Bernard’s, we have to raise $5.5M.  We already have pledges of $1.25M, so we need to raise $4.25M in this campaign to build the church and administrative offices and complete the parish hall.  Your financial commitments will answer the question of what are we going to do as a Parish.


All parishioners will be asked to make a significant financial sacrifice.  If we all truly sacrifice with our resources, then we will have contributed equally to the campaign.


Please continue to pray for the future of our Parish.  Next, please pray for this Campaign and the work of the campaign committee.  And, finally, pray for the Lord to guide you to know how He has called you to sacrifice for the campaign.  Our parish must collectively seek the Will of the Father and answer His call.


God Bless you, and thank you for what you will do to make our Capital Campaign successful.



Update: July 11, 2016

Highlights of the Church and Master Facilities

Plan Design Survey:


1. What is your opinion of the new Blessed Sacrament Church and campus plan as presented on a scale of 1 - 5?


85% of parishioners felt Favorable or Very Favorable about the plan


2. Preliminary contractor estimates indicate it will cost a total of about $9,000,000 to build the entire project (Church, offices, and Parish Hall expansion).  Does this make you more or less favorably inclined about the project?


50% of parishioners were more favorable or much more favorable with another 35% neutral


3. Based on historical formulas, we are told the Parish can expect to raise 4-5 times our annual collections in a 3 year capital campaign for a new church.  Blessed Sacrament’s annual collections are about $750,000 which means the formula says we can raise up to $3,750,000.  That amount, when combined with the projected net sales proceeds, would provide resources of about $7,000,000 which is less  than the projected cost estimate.  Does this make you more or less favorably inclined to proceed with the project?


50% of parishioners were more favorable or much more favorable with another 30% neutral


4. In addition to your regular contributions to the Parish, what level of support do you anticipate providing to the capital campaign for the new church over the next three years?


30% will give 3 times their regular giving with others specifying more and some less.


5. If the capital campaign does not raise the amount required to pursue the entire project, what would you want the Parish to do?


50% want to build everything (the Church, offices, and Parish Hall) as presented in phases over time as funding allows with the majority wanting to begin with the Church.


Update: June 10, 2016


Attention all Blessed Sacrament Parishioners: 

At the end of all Masses this weekend, June 11-12, there will be a Town Hall meeting. Our architects will update the Parish and display drawings of proposals for our new Church, Administration and Parish Hall. If you are in town, please come to Mass and stay for the presentation. You will want to be a part of the plan! Please share this information. Continued prayers are most appreciated! Thank you and God bless!



Update: May 31, 2016

Progress continues to be made on the initial site plan for the church.  Plans for parish wide meetings will be announced soon.  Building committee chairmen will meet tomorrow at their regularly scheduled meeting at noon at the rectory.




    Update: March 22, 2016


The Church Committee leaders met with the architects to review the initial site plan and floor plan concepts on March 22nd.  The Committee was pleased with the progress.  The best ideas were identified from the schemes, and now the architects are creating a combined design to bring back for further review.  Many of the ideas expressed by the church members who attended the Town Hall meeting and programming sessions are being incorporated into the design.  The architects look forward to presenting the master plan when it is developed.






   The committees are all working diligently to make sure we are progressing on our new church plans and capital campaign!

   The land survey was received from the architects.  A meeting will be held soon to review a preliminary master plan.  

   The building committee chairpersons are meeting monthly at the church to give Father Alphonse their updates.

   The capital campaign will be kicking off in the next few months because we know you can’t wait to make your contribution to the new church campaign :).

Jeff Puryear and his team are about to announce the big kick-off with a new brochure outlining the plans.  This is exciting!

   St. Bernard’s is scheduled to take ownership of the hall, school and parking lot by May 31, 2016.  We will keep you posted on this.

   So, things are moving forward!  If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any committee member or chairman.  Thank you for your continued prayers and support!

Update read at all Masses Dec. 12 & 13:

Father Alphonse wanted us to give you an update on our progress so far.  You will find updates here, in the bulletin, and at Mass from time to time.  If you have questions about a particular aspect of the process, please feel free to contact the committee that could best answer your question.   All the members of each committee and their phone numbers are listed below.  All information will be communicated to you as quickly as possible and the committees are doing everything based on the information we, as a parish, provided in our surveys last year.
Our move to the Highland location will take place in two phases.  In the first phase, we will sell the ministry building (the old school), the hall, and the parking lot for 2.5 million dollars.  This will take place in May or June of 2016.  St. Bernard’s will provide parking for us and the details on that will follow once plans are finalized.  We will receive the remaining one million dollars when the church is sold around December of 2017.
We realize there will be a transition period after the church is sold and before our new church is finished.  Father Alphonse is working on some options for mass during this time and is making every effort to insure this transition period a is short one. 
The capital campaign will kick off in February or March of 2016.  We need all the help we can get.  If you would like to make a donation early, before the end of the year, please contact any member of the capital campaign or the church office. The collection at the Christmas Eve and Day Masses will be for the capital campaign.
Also, all committee members are meeting with our architects, Franck and Lohsen, on Dec. 14th at 6:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria on Highland to discuss the feedback we have given them so far.  Father Alphonse would like to have a town hall meeting for all parishioners with the architects once an initial rendering is given to us.  We will have a better idea of cost at this time.  This town hall meeting for all parishioners will be announced when a date is set.
We realize that moving to a new location is bittersweet as we all have personal memories of events at our church.  Yet, we are hoping you will be very excited about the opportunities our new location will provide.  Once again, we will have all of our activities on one campus.  All of us here are our Catholic Church.  We are a family.  If we continue to work together in love of our Church, we will achieve our goal of having adequate facilities for all to worship and serve our Lord.  We ask you to please continue to pray the Treasured Past and Blessed Future prayer.  And again, please feel free to ask questions.  We want everyone to be comfortable with the move process and to be excited about what we believe will be a beautiful new church.
