History of Tradition and Excellence

Our Lady of Sorrows became a parish in the fall of 1927 as a small frame church seating 125 people.  Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School was built by parishioners in 1935 on donated land on Grand River near Orchard Lake Road.  The first three-room school ministered to 140 children looking for a parochial Roman Catholic education.  Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School has grown tremendously since then and now has over 800 students enrolled with capacity for 900 students.  For over 80 years, Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School has maintained its status among the largest and most respected parish-run Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit.  Situated on 19 acres, Our Lady of Sorrows consists of a 900 seat parish Church, a Family and Early Childhood Center with preschool, kindergarten, and chapel; an elementary school and junior high; cafeteria with hot-lunch program; networked and air-conditioned classrooms; interactive technology in each classroom; and a full-size gymnasium and athletic fields.  Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School works to continue and complement the work of the family, the parish and the surrounding social environment - all of which contribute to the total education of the child.
 
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.

In collaboration with St. Fabians join us June 20-24 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at St. Fabians. We will be working with Kim Kerwin and the rest of the staff over at St. Fabian and look forward to seeing your children there. We have a number of projects lined up this year to improve our facilities and we had planned on joining efforts with St. Fabian in the near future as we enter into this new reality of Family of Parishes. After some prayer and multiple discussions I decided that this year was the year to do it. When you have a chance please register and sign your child/children up now for VBS 2022. I am looking forward to seeing you all there. Again, this will be Our Lady of Sorrows and St. Fabian working together and the location this year will be at St. Fabian.
