God’s generosity is boundless.

There is no question that the coronavirus situation presents challenges for all our families. We need to be praying for each other constantly during this very strange time and reaching out to offer support and Christian friendship.

During the next several weeks, the opportunities to know and love God, to learn about our faith, and to grow stronger as committed Christians are not only abundant, but also easy to access.

I hope that you were able to participate in one of the many online Masses that were livestreamed on websites, Facebook and YouTube this past week. Please visit your parish website or www.archokc.org/health to find a list of available Masses. You will also find helpful information about the coronavirus and any updates on decisions and precautions in the archdiocese.

We have also compiled a list of additional resources for parishes and individuals on the new “Digital Resources” page on the Archdiocesan Website.

Finally, I am delighted to share with you that for the next 40 days a platform with numerous movies, videos, books, and formation programs has been made available to you for free. We all have much more time on our hands, especially our children. We might as well be viewing content that is wholesome and uplifting.

Please visit https://leaders.formed.org/oklahomacity/ to access the FORMED platform.

Please feel free to be in touch with our Secretariat for Evangelization and Catechesis team if we can be of any help to you. Let us all be a beacon of light and hope in the midst of this health crisis. Be assured of our prayers!
