March 22,2009 will be the dinner.After the 10:00 am Mass .
This church,St. Josephs Old Cathedral, is located right next to theOklahoma City National Memorial ( Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial ) ,the site of the Murrah Federal Building bombing.
St Josephs was damaged in the blast. This was an intimate and traumatic experience for many that attend this church.And for many around the world...if not the world and Heaven itself.
So it hits home closer than we can sometimes fathom and it unites us ,for we are family. Thank you.
