Are you New to the Cathedral?

Do you want to register as a parishioner?

It’s easy. Do it here.

Welcome to the Cathedral!

Here is a quick look at Holy Family Cathedral Parish.

Clergy: About 2,000 people attend Mass at the Cathedral each weekend. Holy Family’s clergy includes one bishop, two priests, and five deacons. Bishop Edward J. Slattery celebrates Mass in the Cathedral during Sundays of Advent and Lent, all the major Solemnities, and on special occasions. The Cathedral has a reputation for reverent Masses with traditional music – especially at the 10:00 a.m. Sunday Mass.

 

Mass: Because it is located in downtown Tulsa, many Catholics who work downtown go to daily Mass in the Chapel of Peace in the basement of the Cathedral. Here is a schedule of Masses. The Sacrament of Confession is offered ten minutes before every Mass.

 

What’s happening at the Cathedral? Immediate news is posted to Twitter and Facebook. If you like printed media, you may wish to skim through some of the recent weekly bulletins or monthly newsletters.

 

Holy Family Cathedral School is a major effort of the Cathedral. The school was founded in 1899 by Saint Katharine Drexel to serve “Creek Indian Girls.” The school now educates boys and girls belonging to diverse ethnic populations. The youngest children are three years old. Graduates of our Eighth Grade often attend Bishop Kelley High School or Cascia Hall Preparatory School.

 

Holy Family Cathedral is a supporter of Catholic Charities of Tulsa, a collection of charitable organizations. Holy Family parishioners donated over $1 million towards the construction of Catholic Charities’ new campus.

    I’m scared… I’ve never been to a church, and come from a family of atheists. I don’t think I would fit in well at any church due to my appearance (I have MANY tattoos). Is there dress codes?

    1. Lisa Stice says:

      All are welcome to come to church. If you are concerned about dress code and fitting in we do suggest that you follow the vatican dress code which is more about dressing modestly than about being fashionable. Dresses, skirts and shorts should be to the knee no strapless, or sleeveless tops and no deep necklines, deep v neck shirts.

      You are welcome to come to our Wednesdays at the Cathedral, more informal and informational way to to learn about the Catholic Faith. Dinner is at 5:30 pm and classes and programs start at 6:30 pm

    Is there a cry room or children’s room for those who would like to attend mass but have young children?

    1. Lisa Stice says:

      Samantha,

      Thanks for the question. The Cathedral welcomes families with children and all the joyful noises they make. A church without children is a dying church. If you feel your little ones are a bit rambunctious we do have a nursery available during the 10 a.m. and 12 noon Sunday mass. Please considering giving Holy Family a visit.

      Welcome! Just so you know, there’s a special 2:30 p.m. Mass this Sunday to observe Bishop Slattery’s 50th Anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. A reception will follow. It will be a great time to chat with the Bishop and meet the priests.
