The museum hosts many pieces of local artwork for sale including gingerbread houses crafted by students from Tulsa schools. Holy Family Cathedral School has been participating for years.

This year’s entry by our students is a replica of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome. It was made to honor Pope Francis’ visit to the United States.

Generous parishioners purchased the piece and donated it back to Holy Family Parish. It is available for viewing in the Parish Offices on weekdays during office hours.

Not only is this a fun way for students to express their creativity, it is a good way for the public to be reminded of the great things happening at Holy Family Cathedral School. contains more photos and plenty of news about upcoming events there.
