Our Vision

Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School will be a place where our children learn to let their light shine to make the world a better place.

Mission Statement

Our Lady of Sorrows is a three-year-old kindergarten through eighth grade school that has been serving the Ladysmith community, and surrounding areas, since 1912. In cooperation with parents, parish, and community members, Our Lady of Sorrows School will provide a high quality educational setting in which children can grow academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. We strive to develop a better understanding of the Catholic faith within each student, as we prepare them to be confident, responsible, contributing members of the parish and community. We believe in nurturing and encouraging each student to realize his or her full potential. Our Lady of Sorrows School is open to families of all faiths where, as one family, we will answer the call to know, to love, and to serve God.
