Blessed Sacrament Parish began as a mission on November 9, 1959; on the same day the first mas was celebrated in the Clair-Mel area by Father John X. Linnehan at the Palm River School Auditorium. The Christmas Masses (midnight and 10:00 a.m.) where held at the Palm River Civic Center. After a few months, mass was celebrated in the Clair-Mel School Cafetorium. The remainder of the Sunday Masses was held at this location until the Provisional Church was completed. Property had been purchased for the parish in 1958 and 1959.
Blessed Sacrament was canonically erected an independent parish in February, 1960. Father John X. Linnehan, a priest of the Diocese, was the founding administrator.
