Parish Mission Statement
Our Lady of Sorrows is a Catholic Community dedicated to giving witness to Jesus Christ by proclaiming the Gospel, celebrating the Sacraments and Serving others.

School Mission Statement
"The mission of Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School is, in partnership with families, to educate students who will develop spiritually, academically and socially, into disciples of Jesus, fed by the Eucharist, who will live to inspire and serve others in the world."
_____________
Religious education is a lifelong process and parents are the primary spiritual and moral educators of their children. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church says so beautifully,
 
"Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child’s earliest years. This already happens when family members help one another grow in faith by the witness of a Christian life in keeping with the Gospel. Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith. Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God. The parish is the Eucharistic community and the heart of the liturgical life of Christian families; it is a privileged place for the catechesis of children and parents” (Catechism, 2226])."
 
Our responsibility as a parish church is to support parents in their role as the primary teachers and evangelists of their families. Through our full range of Religious Education programs, we seek to give the children in our care the knowledge, experience, and skills necessary to become faithful and fruitful disciples of Jesus. 

Our Sacrament Preparation is a
partnership between parish, religious education office/school and home working together to provide a rich, thourough undersranding of the gift being offered, when completed according to its design and with cooperation of all parties, through the Sacraments. We are very proud of this process.
Our staff works dillegently to assure that materials and teaching methods used are proven effective and relevant to the learner.


Student progress is recorded in the Religious Education and always accessable on SchoolSpeak.
