Parish Life

The heart of Our Lady of Sorrows is the Eucharist, but our parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of the family in addition to celebrating the sacraments.

Faith formation is a vital element of the Catholic life as we grow in knowledge and understanding of our faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he gave us. A deeper understanding can lead to a more intimate relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and through the Trinity to the Church and our family, friends, neighbors, parish, and community. Such faith formation is not just for children, but for all of us as we grow as Catholics. Whether you are interested in helping to form our youth or are seeking to grow spiritually yourself, our parish has opportunities within the faith formation ministry that we encourage you to explore.

Another way to participate in parish life is through involvement in the various parish ministries, including liturgical ministries (choir, lector, altar server, and Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion), social justice ministries (visiting the homebound, serving the poor, and volunteering at food pantries) and youth ministry. God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other people. Please prayerfully consider getting involved in one or more ministries here at Our Lady of Sorrows. And if you have an idea for a new parish ministry, please contact us!

With so many ways to be a part of parish life, you'll want to stay informed by regularly reading the weekly bulletin, just in case you've misplaced the one you received at Mass. You’ll also want to check the parish calendar for a list of events and mass schedules.

Our parish has a rich history in our town, being founded by people who trusted in the Lord and gathered together under the leadership of our bishop. Who we are today is based on who we were yesterday. Find out more about our spiritual forefathers as you read the history of our parish.

We hope you'll also enjoy viewing photos of our parish, including some of the many enjoyable events and programs we've had over the years.
