Welcome to the Parish Community of our Lady of Sorrows. Guided by the conviction that church is the people of God, parishioners of Our Lady of Sorrows were asked what makes their parish special. The responses were woven into the following statement: Our Lady of Sorrows is not just a congregation. It is a family. It is real people who care for other another beyond the time of Sunday Mass. The diversity of the congregation is special, comprising diverse colors, sizes and shapes that fit together. All are welcome, all are part of the family. Our Lady of Sorrows is a very accepting and non-judgmental church where all contribute according to their gifts. All accomplishments are recognized. All efforts are encouraged.
Our Lady of Sorrows reaches beyond itself into its community to serve the needs of the neediest. The parish mission statement is taken from Psalm 87: "The Lord loves his city, and so do we!"
"We, the family of Our Lady of Sorrows parish, accept as our special call, the words of the Psalm: "The Lord loves his city... and so do we." We have been planted in the midst of the city to grow and bear the fruit of the gospel. We offer to God our gifts of time, talent and treasure that our city may be transformed by the power of God's love."
