Something for the History Buffs

This blog usually focuses on the day-to-day changes regarding the current renovation.

If you are even mildly interested in the early history of Catholicism in Tulsa, you will probably enjoy reading this booklet: Holy Family Church, Tulsa, Indian Territory. It is a compilation of narratives from two early pastors of Holy Family Church in Tulsa. Fathers Charles Van Hulse and John Heiring recall the significant moments in the first 24 years of parish history.

There is almost no editing of the priests' words. Every figure of speech is preserved. Plus there are some fun photographs too.

If you enjoyed reading this booklet, leave a comment. If there is enough demand for it, we may see the series continue.
