When are the holy doors open? How do I get an indulgence?

Benedictines, Carmelites & Franciscans: Cathedral Parishioners living in the secular world as members of Religious Orders

Over three thousand religious orders exist within the Catholic Church. Tulsans are familiar with the Christian Brothers who teach at Bishop Kelley, the Augustinians who run Cascia Hall, the Benedictines at Saint Joseph Monastery, Clear Creek Monastery and Saint Gregory’s Monastery.

Local Catholic schools are staffed with Franciscans, Dominicans, and the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George.
