5/01/2016 CYA Church Visit With Mass!

Time: May 1st, 2016 @ 10:30AM.

Location: St. Damien Catholic Church
8455 NW 234th Street
Edmond, OK 73025

It’s gonna be May, y’all, and a new month means it’s time for another Church Hop! This is a great way to enjoy all of the wonderful Catholic churches in the Oklahoma City Metro–and of course, come in contact with their vibrant congregations.

Sunday, May 1st, we will be attending Mass together at St. Damien of Molokai in Edmond. Mass begins at 10:30AM. Confession is available before, during, and after mass. The Rosary will be offered before mass, and there will be Benediction after Mass.

Please come early so we can all sit together!

This will be a Traditional High Mass (the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, or The Tridentine Mass), celebrated in Latin. Mass will be about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

In respect to St. Damien’s Parish tradition, proper attire is suggested: Suit and tie for men, dress or skirt and head-cover for women.

If you’ve never been to a Latin Mass before, don’t worry! Yes, for first-timers, this may be a radically different experience from your regular Sunday mass, as participation will be more interior, but it is no less real and beautiful. This is the Mass that, until 1970, was universal throughout the Roman Catholic Church for almost 500 years! This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the fullness and Tradition of our Catholic heritage.

YOU GUYS, this is how centuries of Catholics, and most of the saints celebrated Mass. This is the Mass that St. Gregory the Great and St. Thomas Aquinas celebrated and contributed to.This is the Mass that was first celebrated on the shores of America by Spanish and French missionaries; the Mass that priests said secretly during the dark days of persecution, and the Mass that Blessed Miguel Pro risked his life to celebrate before being captured and martyred. What an awesome way to be united with the communion of saints! The prayers, readings, and chants that these profound humans heard and pondered will be the ones we hear and ponder too. Pretty amazing if you ask me.

As usual, a few of us will stay after Mass to spread the word about Catholic Young Adults of Oklahoma City. Please feel free to attend Mass and join us afterwards! We will plan to grab lunch as well –location to be determined.

We hope to see you at St. Damien’s this Sunday!


04/21/2016 Theology on Tap!

Time: April 21st, 2016 @ 7PM.

Location: Blu’s BBQ and Burgers
612 N Robinson Ave
Oklahoma City, OK 73102

This month at Theology on Tap our speaker will be Dr. Carole Brown, Director of the Office of New Evangelization of the Archdiocese of OKC. Dr. Brown studied at Franciscan University of Steubenville, and subsequently served as the Director of Evangelistic Outreach there for eight years. Following her time in Steubenville, Dr. Brown spent nine years abroad and obtained a Ph.D. in systematic theology from Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy in Dublin, Ireland. Her dissertation, “Crossing the Threshold of Faith: Pope John Paul II’s Approach to the Problem of the Conversion of the Baptized,” addresses the central problem that gives rise to the need for a new evangelization: It is possible to be a member of the Church yet not an intentional disciple of Jesus Christ. Dr. Brown is currently working to develop new methods to invite the many Catholics of the archdiocese, as well as non-Catholics in central and western Oklahoma, to a renewed encounter with Christ and His Church.

Come out to hear about Dr. Brown’s plan and learn ways that we as young adults can continue the work of new evangelization. There will be beer, BBQ, and fellowship for all

3/07/2016 CYA Prayer Night!

Time: March 7th, 2016 @ 7:00PM.

Location: St. Andrews Catholic Church
800 NW 5th St
Oklahoma City, OK 73160

Hey all!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter with family and friends!
It is easy to go back to our normal every day lives and forget about Easter as if it was any other day that is behind us now. But let us not forget about the one who is risen now! We are still in the Easter season, so let’s continue dwelling on this AWESOME mystery of salvation. Come join us Thursday as we focus on His Rising through great discussions, fellowship, and adoration. (Plus, there will also be games such as pool, air hockey, etc., and maybe some food and snacks afterwards.)

Don’t forget St. Andrew’s is in Moore, and we will meet in the large building behind the church! I hope to see you all there!
