Moving Foward

We occasionally have people that come to the church to solicit you for money and we encourage you NOT to give them money or engage in conversation. While we try to be generous and help those in need, we offer them assistance and food but they are only looking for money. In recent times we have heard that the church is a target for those trying to harm the church. If you are approached, please do not engage and tell an usher or security person or a staff member. Thank you!

Welcome from our Pastor

On behalf of our parish family, welcome to St. Mary of Sorrows parish website! We would love for you to join us on Sunday, and every day!  Please look over our website and if we can be of help to you, please do not hesitate to contact me or a staff member. Our mission/vision statement is listed below to provide you with a deeper sense of our commitment to our Lord Jesus.

In Christ Through Mary,
Rev. James S. Barkett, Pastor
