The property is 10.8 acres. It is primarily comprised of the current Protestant-designed church, a growing K-12 Catholic school for 75 students, and a 34-room retreat house.
Retreatants come from across North America to attend one or more of fourteen retreats each year. Phoenix also annually hosts one of the two priests' retreats. More than 35 priests and usually a bishop are in attendance.
The site also has a priory, other living quarters, a large athletic field, and an orange grove.
Four priests reside at Our Lady of Sorrows. They serve the parish as well as nearby missions.
With fundraising nearing the end, I would like to promote this initiative so that a chapel may be built in honor of our Lady under the title, Our Lady of Sorrows. Please visit the site to help them in this noble cause.
