Second Sunday after Epiphany

Women’s Ignatian Retreat starts tomorrow. Please keep the silence on the retreat grounds this week. Please keep the retreatants in your prayers.

Church Directory:  We invite all parishioners to be included in the parish directory – singles, couples, and families. Stop by the table outside church today after all Masses to schedule your photography appointment. Sessions will only be held January 25th – 31st (two days added). All parishioners who participate will receive a free church directory plus an 8x10 portrait. You will also have the opportunity to purchase additional photos.

Before you file your taxes: Please consider making a dollar-for-dollar tax credit donation to Our Lady of Sorrows Academy. Whether you expect an Arizona state refund or a payment due, you can make a contribution to benefit our academy and then receive your contribution back after filing your taxes. Please visit the information table today after Mass or February 6th for more information, to get your questions answered, or for step-by-step instructions. Also see the flyer in the vestibule, or visit: https://ourladyofsorrows-academy.com/en/az-tax-credit  for details.

Ladies Auxiliary Meeting: All women of the parish are invited to a meeting on Tuesday, January 18th at 7:00 PM in the Performing Arts Center. Fr. Pons will continue his talks on Womanhood, we will discuss upcoming parish events, then will end with a social hour. Please bring a snack, dessert, or drink to share.

Holy Hour for Mothers: All ladies of the parish are invited to assist at a Holy Hour this Friday, January 21st at 10:00 AM to pray for Priests, for holy religious vocations, for our husbands and children, and for the graces we need to be faithful in the beautiful work of our vocation. We will remember especially the many newly engaged couples of the parish as we pray for holy Catholic marriages. Please join us! We look forward to having your fervent prayers. Babies and children are always welcome.   If you have any questions, please contact Megan Henry at 859-533-9535. Thank you!
