Donate Here

Since we cannot attend Mass physically in our churches, our collections aren’t there to still pay expenses. While we are financially stable, this will have an impact on our parish budget.  We pray and hope to maintain the upkeep of our parish, just as our parishioners do with their homes, at this trying time. We hope you will celebrate Sunday Mass from your homes by watching it on television or on our Facebook Page.  We ask that if it’s in your budget to please continue contributing to Our Lady of Sorrows by mailing your donations to our parish office: PO Box 326, Vestal NY  13851 or taking advantage of on-line giving!  

New Mass Parts

Over the next few weeks, we will be introducting new Mass Parts into our weekend liturgies.  Click on the links below to listen and familiarize yourself with our new music parts!

Saturdays from 9:00 am to Noon

Please call the Food Pantry ahead at (607) 785-3214 and leave your name, phone number and the number of people in your household and which day you are planning to come to the pantry.   We are now allowing our clients to enter the building again to place their orders in person.  We ask that you bring current identification for yourself.  At this time we are also asking you to wear a face mask when entering the building.

Only two clients will be allowed in at one time.  You may call us from the parking lot when you arrive if you have a cell phone or you can ring the doorbell at our entrance.  You may be asked to wait outside until others have left the building.  After placing your order and making some personal selections you can return to your vehicle and someone will bring your completed order out to you.

Please follow all health recommendations to ensure not only your safety but the safety of others.  May God bless you and your families with good health.

We are now accepting donations of non-perishable items for the pantry.  They may be dropped off in the Gathering Space during office hours.
