Upcoming Events

Lectio Mary Bible Study and Marian Consecration

May is special month when we honor and celebrate Mary our Queen and Mother. The MOS Office of Discipleship, Parish Bible Study groups and the Legion of Mary are coming together this spring to offer two programs to deepen our Marian devotion:

FORMED Bible Study: “Lectio Mary.” This deep, but easy-to-understand Bible Study explores Mary through the Sacred Scriptures to explain her powerful significance in the Church and our lives. This study will be offered on Wednesdays in the Social Hall, Beginning April 10 for 8 weeks and ending May 29. There will be a morning session at 9:30AM and an evening session 6:30 PM. Each session will last an hour and a half and the cost of the workbook is $5.

Marian Consecration: We will use Fr. Michael Gaitley’s “33 Days to Morning Glory” as a way to consecrate ourselves to Jesus through Mary. In this group, you will read a reflection about Mary and pray the Holy Rosary every day for 33 days on your own. As a group, we will meet weekly connected to the Bible Study, based on availability. We will begin Sunday, April 28 and our consecration date will be on the Feast of the Visitation, May 31.

Please email Jacob Gindhart at to RSVP by April 3 and mention if you would like to participate in The Bible Study, Consecration, or both.  Please include if you will attend the morning or evening session of the Bible Study.

Breathing Room

A Space to Process Grief

Do you ever feel like you just need some room to breathe?! We want to
invite you to join your fellow parishioners to create that space together as we
seek to process our grief.

Mother of Sorrows Parish will hold two separate groups with Nancy
Matteuzzi, MB, BCC Pastoral Associate, beginning in April. They will each
meet for six weeks. In the seventh week, we will join together on Tuesday,
May 28 at 6:30 PM for a closing memorial service and reception.

Evening Group: Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 PM in the Ave Maria Room
April 19 to May 21

Day Group: Wednesday from 1:00 to 2:30 PM in the Ave Maria Room
April 20 to May 22

It is our hope that this program will help you to acknowledge the reality of your loss, begin to process your pain, and create meaning to help you move forward. You will be led through various mourning exercises within the safe and sacred space that we create together.
