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.



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 and from 3:30 pm to 4:45 pm on Saturdays.


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.

Family Faith Formation is a big part of our Wednesdays at the Cathedral. In addition to guest speakers we have faith formation for all ages and stages, including sacramental preparation, classes for parents and RCIA. For more information on Family Faith Formation, click here.

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.

    Recently graduated and in need of a new Church in Tulsa. Do I need to sign up to attend mass here? I am confirmed.

    1. Holy Family Cathedral says:

      We would love to have you join us at the Cathedral and you’re welcome anytime! Stop by the Parish Office or pick up a new parishioner registration form from the back of the church if you would like to become a registered parishioner.

    Hi, my friend and myself would like to visit for a Saturday or Sunday mass. I’m not familiar with downtown, and I’m worried about finding parking. I was looking on Google maps and I wonder if the large parking area just east of Boulder Avenue is parking for the cathedral? Thanks for your help. I’m excited to visit!

    1. Holy Family Cathedral says:

      Hi Christine! We would love to have you join us for Mass! Yes, there is a parking lot across Boulder that allows for Cathedral parking. There is also parking along the street that is available at times.

      Weekend Mass Schedule:
      5:00 pm Saturday
      8:00 am, 10:00 am, 12:00 Noon, and 5:00 pm Sunday

      We look forward to you and your friend joining us!

    Does your church perform any Mass services in Latin?

    1. Matthew Lauderdale says:

      Hi there, Jessica. Holy Family Cathedral does not, but Most Precious Blood Parish and Sts. Peter and Paul in Tulsa do. Hope this helps!

  4. Searching For Answers says:

    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

  5. Samantha Henry says:

    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:


      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.

    Am still new in town. And hoping to come by this sunday for 10am mass. Am exited already!!

    1. Mike Malcom says:

      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.
