This month’s congregation spotlight is on Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church.  In reading their website’s welcome section, it states “Our mission, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, is to proclaim and live Christ`s message of love and service, within our parish and in the larger, world community”.  Our Lady of Sorrows extends its helping hand in far reaching ways through Catholic Charities, Social and Relief Services.  Locally, the outreach can be felt through various avenues such as - a pregnancy center, a food pantry, ministering to the imprisoned and sheltering families. 

Since 2002, Our Lady of Sorrows has been a Host Church for Warren County’s IHN Program.  They are supported by four local churches - Monroe United Methodist Church, Monroe Presbyterian Church, The River Church and Monroe First Church of God.  Monroe’s IHN has and continues to be a great community and team effort.

The church financially supports Interfaith Hospitality Network with a dedicated appeal.  Their Soup”er” Bowl campaign kicks off on Super Bowl Sunday. Parishioners pick up a soup bowl to collect spare change during the month.  The accumulated proceeds are given to Warren County’s IHN program.

In ‘loving neighbor as self”, Pope Francis has asked that we rediscover corporal works of mercy in 2016 during the Jubilee Year of Mercy.  Corporal works as feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless are acts of mercy and daily acts of the Interfaith Hospitality Network.
