NEW Online Giving Option!
We are excited to announce a NEW option for online giving at Our Lady of Sorrows. Now you can access this online giving option securely from your phone, tablet, or computer. You can choose a one-time donation or recurring donations, using either a credit card or bank account. It’s quick, easy, and secure!
With this new option, there is no need to fill out a form or contact the office if you want to start an electronic contribution or change a current one. The QR code will take you directly to the donation page. You can also click on "DONATE" below.
If you are using our current system of electronic giving, this option will still be available! If you are happy with giving this way, there is no need to do anything. If you set up online giving with the NEW option and need to cancel your contributions with the old electronic giving, please call Bob in the office.
You can also mail in your contribution envelopes and other donations that you would normally be putting in the collection basket. Make all checks payable to Our Lady of Sorrows and mail to:
