Welcome to Our Lady of Sorrows Parish!


Our Lady of Sorrows Parish is a Roman Catholic community of Faith, centered in the Eucharist and the Word of God. Our mission, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, is to proclaim and live Christ`s message of love and service, within our parish and in the larger, world community.

ALL ARE WELCOME! On Sunday, November 18, OLOS will welcome local author, Beth Gully! She will give a presentation to PSR classes in the PAC from 9:00 AM until 10:15 AM. This presentation is geared to all ages and ALL parishioners are invited and encouraged to come listen to her talk. You will be able to purchase her book at this presentation.

Beth Gully is author of “The Other Side of Christmas”, An Upside-Down book. She is one of 100 recognized ambigram designers in the world and one of three children’s authors who has created a children’s book using ambigrams. Beth will share how she created her first ambigram, and other insights into her faith journey which ranged from self-doubt to perseverance, in following God’s calling. Her book received the Seal of Approval from the Catholic Writers Guild and is available in both English and Spanish.

If you have any questions, please ask Chris in the Parish Office.
