Small Church Communities
We are planning to resume our Small Church Communities (SCCs) during the week of September 6.
An SCC is a group of 8-12 parishioners who meet every other week at various times during the week from September to December and January to April.
As we have in prior years, each 90-minute session explores the next Sunday’s Gospel, and then discusses a faith-related topic. In our first session of the season, a Pastoral Region Update is the secondary discussion topic.
In this time of social distancing, a Small Church Community can make you realize how beautiful small can be. This offers you a perfect way to connect with other parishioners in a safe way. Social distancing requirements will be observed.
Sign-up opportunities begin this weekend. Even if you have been involved with one of our groups, we ask you to sign up again and maybe suggest it to a friend. Currently, all meetings will be at Our Lady of Sorrows and the following times are available to sign up:
Sunday: 11:00 am
Monday: 7:00 pm
Tuesday: 7:00 pm
Thursday: 9:45 am
Saturday: 9:00 am
Use the sign-up sheets in the Gathering Space, send an email to [email protected] or leave a message for Chris Baumgardner at the parish office (513-539-8061).
Did you know you that you can make your contributions to Our Lady of Sorrows electronically? Once a month, on the 5th of every month, funds can be transferred from your bank account electronically.
Simply download the form and mail it to the Parish office. You will need to enclose a cancelled check for verification of routing numbers.
IMPORTANT: When submitting routing numbers on the form, be sure that you copy them from a CHECK and NOT a Deposit Slip. They are different numbers.
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:
Our Lady of Sorrows
330 Lebanon Street
Monroe, OH 45050
Finally, you can also have checks sent automatically from your bank to the parish on a regular basis. Contact your bank for details.
Welcome to Our Lady of Sorrows Parish!
