          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 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 acco mplishmentsare recognized. All efforts are encouord loves his city, and so do we!" raged to serve the needs of the neediest. The parish mission statement is taken from Psalm 87: " The"The Loves His  city...and so do we."

  • Prayer

    Prayer for a Pandemic                         May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake. May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable. May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose   between preserving their health or making their rent. May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close remember those who have no options. May we who have to cancel our trips remember those that have no safe place to go. May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all. May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home. As fear grips our country, let us choose love. During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors. Amen.                                                  by Cameron Bellm
