About OLS

a Catholic community in south St. Louis city

Whether you are a life-long member of Our Lady of Sorrows or a newly-registered member, the Gospel speaks of those who came earmass-in-progressly or late to the vineyard as equal beneficiaries of God’s generous and gracious gifts.  Together we are living stones of the temple which has Jesus Christ as both its cornerstone and keystone.

The Eucharist is at the center of our parish life.  It is at the Eucharist where we welcome each other and share our vision of faith.  Our weekend Mass schedule is Saturday evening at 5:00 pm and Sunday morning at 8:00 and 10:00 am.  Our school serves students from preschool through 8th grade, instilling Catholic values as well as providing outstanding instruction in all subject areas.

We welcome you to a very vibrant parish and school and invite you to participate in our activities, and to join any organization(s) that might interest you.  We hope that you will benefit from the various programs and ministries detailed in these pages.

Together we are on a journey to grow in faith.  We welcome your presence among us as we help to build the City of God.

Parish Mission

We, the Catholic community of Our Lady of Sorrows, are disciples of Jesus Christ through our Baptism.  Nourished by Word and Sacrament we seek to form adults, teens and children in the ways of the Gospel, while welcoming new members to our parish and our Catholic faith.  As a Eucharistic people, guided by the Holy Spirit, we minister to all, especially the ill, elderly and those in need, through works of fellowship, charity and justice. We strive to continue the mission of our parish begun a century ago through the prayerful intercession of Mary, Our Mother.
