Hi you all!

At our baptism we are anointed as priest, prophet, and king. What does that really mean? We are going to discuss each role and how to fully live it out in our daily life.

The Catholic Young Adults of Oklahoma City invites you to help serve the poor and homeless at this month’s “Big Breakfast” event hosted by Sister BJ’s Pantry. Volunteers will be tasked with a number of different options. Some folks will stay in the pantry and help make sack lunches / toiletry bags to restock the pantry. Some will cook, serve, and socialize with the people.

Parking is on the street around the pantry. We will be meeting in the pantry at 6:30 AM to have a pre meeting and a group prayer. This is the pantry’s biggest event each month, so the more volunteers-the better! After the event, the volunteers usually go to brunch together in Midtown. If you have questions, please send us a message and we will get back to you soon.

This month for Theology on Tap we will have the biggest name in the archdiocese: His Excellency Archbishop Paul Coakley! He will be sharing a bit about his own faith journey, and communicate how the Young Adult Community in Oklahoma City can embrace his vision of “Go Make Disciples.”

It is a great privilege and honor that His Excellency wanted to visit with us at our regular venue & event, so let’s give him the turnout he deserves: please invite your fellow young adult friends & parishioners to join us for a beer, BBQ, and fellowship as we hear directly from our shepherd how each of us in the young adult community can take part in the Vision for discipleship in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City.

At the start of his episcopacy, Archbishop Coakley communicated a vision to all of us in his Pastoral Letter: Go Make Disciples ( If you haven’t already, we invite each of you to read his letter and discern with us how we can align our lives with this vision.

Several of us will gather for prayer & adoration before and after the Event at St. Joseph’s Old Cathedral (one block west of Blu’s BBQ). Please join us as we seek to grow in a deeper relationship with our Lord.

If you are interested in joining for adoration and need the door code, please text/call Dominic Hoang (405-204-1012)

Time: July 6, 2017 @ 7:00PM.

Location: St Francis of Assisi Church 2nd floor of the Meerschaert house.
1901 NW 18th St
Oklahoma City, OK 73106

“And he said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.’” (Mark 4:30-32)

Let’s talk about the Early Church, what it looked like when that mustard seed first began to grow, and whether it looks like the Church as we see it today.

We will discuss lives and works of Saints Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp of Smyrna, and Irenaeus of Lyon, all bishops who were disciples of the Apostles or of a disciple of the Apostles.

We will meet at St. Francis of Assisi in the Meerschaert House on the second floor for Vespers followed by the discussion. Map shown in the event comments!
