Also this Saturday, Catholic Charities of Eastern Oklahoma is in need of some heavy lifters. If you are over over 21 and ready and willing to lift things like desks and file cabinets, we need you this weekend. To help, please contact Kelly Cassidy by using the form found here: https://cctulsa.org/volunteer/. In the box that says, "Anything else you'd like us to know," just add a note that says "Saturday Furniture." Thanks! This heavy lifting will not occur ON the Catholic Charities campus, but will be on property just around the corner from us. Fill out the form and Kelley will get back to you with details.

Congratulations to Luis Peña on being accepted into the Diaconate Formation Program for the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma! We are so proud of you, Luis, and we will pray for you!
Sunday morning, I, along with 22 other pilgrims, depart Tulsa for Italy. This Eucharistic Miracle pilgrimage will conclude with our attendance at the Diaconate Ordination of Tulsa seminarians Robert Duck and Vince Fernandez (and 30 other of their classmates) in St. Peter's Basilica. I will certainly be praying for you and your needs while on pilgrimage...please keep me and my fellow pilgrims in yours.
