The Return of Holy Communion for Mass Attendees
Many Thanks from the Kitchen
Gingues/Marshall Family - Hope
Marvin Family - Grace, Lucy, Jane
Yates/Torvaldson Family - Alex
PLEASE READ: KITCHEN NEWS
We have a small - but mighty - kitchen team who prepares well over 200 meals a day. Not having an accurate breakfast and lunch count creates an unnecessary flurry to prepare extra meals which negatively impact their flow. Please do your part and place your student's breakfast and lunch online orders. Thank you!
PTO Meeting Notice
Attention Confirmation Candidates, Grades 6-8
If your student is a parishioner of Most Holy Name of Jesus or Blessed Sacrament parish, your student will participate in Confirmation preparation at Bishop Marshall School and may join the parish program (although that is not required). Please reach out to one of the following coordinators to let them know your student is participating in the BJAMS Confirmation preparation:
- Most Holy Name of Jesus: please contact Mary Elfer at (email@example.com; 888.3318)
- Blessed Sacrament: please contact Christina DeRuzza at (firstname.lastname@example.org; 253.1542)
- If your family belongs to a parish other than Most Holy Name of Jesus or Blessed Sacrament, you must reach out to your parish priest for guidance.

2021 Advance Child Tax Credit Payments
The 2021 Child Tax Credit provides advance payments of up to $300 per month for each child under age 6 and up to $250 per month for each child ages 6 through 17 for eligible households. Households who have already filed their 2020 tax return should be receiving these monthly payments automatically. However, households who are not required to file federal income tax returns need to register for the payments through the IRS’s Non-filer Sign-up Tool. Many low income families are not required to file federal income tax returns and may not be aware that these funds are available to them. Please see the following resources for additional information:
