Preparing For Our Future
From its beginnings as a country mission church, Our Lady of Sorrows has served as the center of Catholic worship and devotion in Owensville, MD, since 1866. Today, along with our rich heritage, comes aging facilities that are in need of repair.
In 2017, the parish contracted with EMG to conduct a facility condition assessment of all our buildings, property, systems and equipment. As a result, EMG provided the parish with a report of recommendations for capital improvements. Several elements were earmarked as immediate priorities.
So, after much prayer, study, and consultation, and with an eye to the needs of the future, we are embarking on the Preparing Today for our Future Tomorrow campaign. The campaign will seek to raise $220,000 to address some of our most pressing facility needs.
Our parish was built through the generosity and stewardship of past and present parishioners. We are called to continue their work.
Please pray and reflect on how you can participate. Through your generosity, we will successfully complete this capital campaign, which will position our facilities to serve our current and future parishioners for many years to come.
