About Our Church and Priory

Our Lady of Sorrows is a traditional Catholic parish located in South Phoenix, served by priests of the SSPX.

We have a daily Tridentine Mass, run a traditional Catholic School for children K-12 and offer numerous retreats for the faithful throughout the year. ​ The SSPX recognizes the importance of frequent social contact between its priests, its faithful, and the world at large. Community life, education, and apostolic works are crucial in forming a complete Catholic society. This growing parish serves as one of these outposts, eager to serve our community by providing traditional Catholic Sacraments.

Chapel Life

In addition to a daily Tridentine Mass Our Lady of Sorrows offers a variety of activities and organizations for faithful of all ages.
