Our Lady of Sorrow's Church

Welcome from the Pastor

            On behalf of our parish family here at Our Lady of Sorrows, welcome to our parish web site!

            We believe that Our Lady of Sorrows Parish is a place where people find a spiritual home; a place where people can come to know more deeply the love of God; a place where we can be nourished on our faith journey; and a place where we can share our time and talents in ministry.

            I am happy that you have taken the time to visit our web site and hope that it will give you some helpful information as well as a sense of what our parish community is all about. Please do not hesitate to contact me or anyone on our staff if we can be of any assistance to you.

            Sincerely in Christ,
            Rev. Msgr. Robert Emery

Parishes across the country are turning to Electronic Funds Transfer for aid in stewardship.   We are pleased to announce that we can now offer this service to our parishioners through the same company that now publishes our bulletin.  We have enlisted Parish Giving, a subsidiary of John Patrick Publishing, to establish and administer an automated giving program at Our Lady of Sorrows Parish.

This program allows parishioners to have their contributions directly debited from either their checking or savings account or credit card on a monthly basis.  This program is free for parishioners, and you maintain full control of your offerings.

When you are ready to enroll, please click on the Parish Giving logo and follow the simple registration process.
