Mission Nuestra Señora de los Dolores is a former Mission church in Sonora, Mexico.

It was founded by Jesuit missionary Father Kino on March 13, 1687. The Mission church was built near the Pima settlement of Cosari, about 30 km north of Cucurpe, Sonora. The mission name means "Our Lady of Sorrows" and it was the mother mission of the Pimeria Alta.

By the late 1690s, the Mission consisted of a church, a carpentry shop and a blacksmith's area. By 1744, the Mission had been abandoned. Only the cemetery remains today.
