The Catholic Family Festival, scheduled for April 22, has been cancelled.
Every time of year is a busy time of year, and apparently April 22 is especially busy this year! Because of this, the Archdiocesan Catholic Family Festival has not had sufficient registrations, and the decision has been made to cancel the event. For those who did register, we appreciate your willingness to engage in a learning and faith sharing experience for your family. Unfortunately, not enough other families were able to commit at this time.
Families who have registered for the festival will be receiving a refund as soon as they are processed. If you have questions about your refund, please call (405)709-2721.
We hope everyone has a great weekend!
Pope Paul VI taught us that the Holy Spirit is the "Principle Agent" of evangelization. In the "New Evangelization" it is essential that we seek his help and cultivate devotion to the Holy Spirit. Over a century ago, Pope Leo XIII asked that every church in the world pray the Novena to the Holy Spirit every year in the nine days leading up to Pentecost.
This year, Pentecost falls on June 4. The novena prayers begin on Friday the 26th of May. The Office of New Evangelization has prepared novena booklets for use in parishes, or by individuals. These are available in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
