Ada — Dr. Carole Brown, director of Evangelization for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, will be at St. Joseph Church on Saturday, March 8, for a women’s Lenten reflection day. The event will begin at 9:30 a.m. with breakfast in Benedictine Hall.
Brown is the new director of the Office of the New Evangelization for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. She grew up on a cattle ranch in western South Dakota along with four other siblings.
“It is with a heavy heart that I acknowledge the painful tragedy that occurred at Christ the King this morning,” the Most Rev. Paul S. Coakley, archbishop of Oklahoma City, said in a statement. “As an archdiocese, we grieve the loss of Quaid Thomas ‘QT’ Dolan and pray for the peace and comfort of all those who are affected by this sad and unexpected occurrence. My sympathy and concern go out especially to the Dolan family and to the entire Christ the King community in this time of suffering.”
The Most Rev. Paul S. Coakley, archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, said it's critical that those making decisions about the same-sex marriage bans hear from faith groups who want to see them upheld.
“It is important for the church — and indeed, for anyone who recognizes it — to speak the truth that marriage is the union of one man and one woman,” Coakley said. “Among many other concerns, the push to redefine marriage threatens to leave society without any institution whatsoever that explicitly supports and protects natural childbearing as the only means of reproduction that does not reduce children to a mere commodity, a product to be manufactured in a lab to the specification of adults.”
The 32nd annual Green Tie Gala is set for March 8 at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.
Patrick Raglow, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, said the gala offers attendees the opportunity to “eat, drink and change a life.”

I don’t get out much for sporting events that I’m not covering. An occasional high school football game. A gymnastic meet or two, since my oldest granddaughter loves the sport. Youth sports involving 7-year-old Riley or my 6-year-old nephew, who plays basketball and t-ball.
But Friday night, my wife and I took all three granddaughters — Riley, 4-year-old Sadie and 2-year-old Tinley — to the McCarthy Gymnasium to watch the Bishop McGuinness boys play Ardmore.
