Votive Candles


We have 14 candle stands to fill and our candle revenue has seemed to decline. We observe people lighting candles but not making a donation to help pay for the candles, globes and tappers. Your donation per candle helps cover the cost of each votive candle or large candle and the sticks to light them. Your donation will help us to continue to have “real” candles to light. The same is true for our kiosk in the back of church with books, booklets and CD’s. In order to keep it filled with the newest items, we need your support. We only ask for $3 per CD or booklet and $15 per book. We want to continue to make these resources available for your spiritual enrichment but need your support.

Mass Intentions



We have Masses, Bread & Wine and Sanctuary Candle Remembrances available.
Please call the office at 927-1154 to reserve your date.

Prayer Request


If you wish to have your families, friends, and loved-ones on the sick list, please call the parish office at 927-1154.

Homebound Holy Communion


Our Lady of Sorrows’ Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are readily available to bring Communion to the homes of the sick. If you or someone that you know is a shut-in and would like to receive Communion, please let us know by contacting the Parish Office at 927-1154.
