"It is not the judgements of men which open and shut the gates of heaven" - St. Jerome

"Unlikely Family"

This documentary, now in post production, takes a close look at the extraordinary existence of this all-inclusive church located in a most unlikely place: Tulsa, Oklahoma. As the parish celebrates its 20 year anniversary, the film juxtaposes the landscape from 1995 to current times; how & why the church began, who started it; its successes & challenges and the remarkable resilience of the parish "family."

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE IN THE SERVICE?
A copy of the service bulletin, including hymns for the day was given to you by our Ushers. The order of service is contained in this bulletin. You can also find the prayers , responses and details about the celebration of Mass in the Missalette found in the Pew rack. We customarily stand to praise God (when we sing), sit to learn (when we hear the lessons, the sermon, or announcements), and kneel to pray. We follow the order of service and participate audibly in the people's responses.

MAY I TAKE COMMUNION?
All persons are not only welcome, but encouraged to join us at Christ's Table. Our custom is to kneel or stand at the altar rails, and receive the Bread in our open hands. After consuming the Bread, we receive the cup, by assisting the server to guide it to our lips. Children who have been baptized may receive Communion at the Parish Church of St. Jerome. Children who do not receive Communion are encouraged to accompany their parents to the altar rail, cross their arms over their chest, and receive a blessing.
