new boiler for the hall, ongoing maintenance for the
church air-conditioning, repairing the outside church
steps and railings and installing new safety railings
outside the hall.
Volunteers are needed to help with the dinner.
A fun-filled evening is in store for all.

can help out.!!

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.

Precious Blood Devotions


A new group has formed to pray the Precious Blood Devotions together before The Blessed Sacrament at Our Lady of Sorrow’s Church every Friday from 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
ALL ARE INVITED TO ATTEND!
