We present here the first of some regular photo reports about the construction of the SSPX's new church of Our Lady of Sorrows in Phoenix, Arizona (also the location of the namesake retreat center).

This spacious new church being built in the Spanish Colonial style will replace the original church (a former Protestant church) purchased by the SSPX in 1978. The new church is being constructed on the neighboring grounds of the former orchard which the parish purchased in 1995.
