Fr. Mark Brauer

As the ninth pastor of Our Lady of Sorrows Parish, I want to welcome you to  our website. It is our sincere hope that you will find this new website both  useful and informative about all of the events and activities that make our  parish such a warm and vibrant community.

We recently celebrated 80 years of ministry in the Farmington/ Farmington  Hills area with many events over the past year, culminating in a mass of  thanksgiving in June. To prepare for our future, we have undertaken a Total  Parish Pastoral Plan that has been developed in consultation with over 200  of our faithful parishioners. Our progress toward the implementation of all of  the recommendations to improve our ministries and service to our  community is being overseen by a Tracking Committee comprised of  members of the parish. A summary of the strategic plan for our parish is  available on this website. Many of the recommendations that have been and  will be implemented in the near future include better servicing the needs of  our members and greater transparency of our financial information.

One of our proudest ministries at Our Lady of Sorrows is our exemplary  elementary school. As one of the largest Catholic elementary schools in the  Archdioceses of Detroit, our mission is to educate our students spiritually,  intellectually, and academically to be disciples of Christ throughout their  lifetime. For more information on our school and what it can offer students  and parents, please visit the school home page.

Thank you for visiting us on the world wide web.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Rev. Mark S. Brauer
