Under the administration of Bishop Charles P. Greco, Our Lady of Sorrows Church was established in 1946. At that time, the Rev. Stanley J. DeKeuwer was assigned to the nearby Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Moreauville. Our Lady of Sorrows was established for the Black Catholics of the area at that time in history and placed under the care of the Holy Ghost Fathers.  A priest of the Congregation of the Holy Cross also served the parish in the 1970's.  A parish school was opened in 1949 and remained open until 1970.
