Our Lady of Sorrows

As we celebrate September, a month dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows, we observe three feasts this month that call us into a more devoted relationship with the Blessed Virgin Mary. This month, we celebrate:

  • September 8 – The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary
  • September 12 – The Most Holy Name of Mary
  • September 15 – Our Lady of Sorrows

You know our team at CatholicMom.com loves Our Lady, and we also love our technology. We thought we’d share a few “tech tools” — but also some “old fashioned” ones — for you to know, love and share Mary. Enjoy!
