“. . . in your compassion, O Merciful Father, gather to yourself all your children scattered throughout the world.”

From The Roman Missal; Eucharistic Prayer III

“There is a place for you here.”

One sign of a growing parish is the

sound of children.

Dear Parents,

Thank you for bringing your children to the Mass! When your children make sounds, this is what they are offering to Almighty God, this is their prayer. If you are comfortable, please feel free to sit up close to the altar and quietly explain what is going on during the Mass to your child. If you need to step out with your child from the congregation for a moment, please come back. Mary brought her Son, Jesus, into the temple. Please remember what Jesus said: “Let the children come to me and do not stop them.” At the celebration of the Mass, Jesus Christ welcomes all of us, children of God.

Dear Parishioners,

When we see and hear the sounds of children at Mass, we are reminded that our parish is growing. Your smiling face and friendly gesture of hospitality helps to create an atmosphere in which children of all ages are welcome.

Very Rev. William G. Coffas,

Pastor of Our Mother of Sorrows
