The Addolorata Society of Mount Saint Peter Parish was established to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Sorrows. The Society has a mission to support our parish as well as promote the spiritual growth and well-being of its members.
In order to fulfill our devotion to the Mother of Sorrows we will celebrate her Feast by honoring her at Mass on September 15th of each year.
We will minister to members and their families through attendance at the funeral of all Addolorata Society members of our parish.
Finally, we will cooperate with other church groups for the good of our parish.
The Addolorata Society was formed in 1903 by a group of early "pioneer" women, one year after Mt. St. Peter Parish was founded in New Kensington. Their purpose was, and is now, to serve the parish. The Addolorata Society has been able to actively maintain and sustain itself through several generations.
