Oklahoma archbishop calls Holy Hour 'a powerful witness of faith'

 | 

Oklahoma City's archbishop called the overflow crowd at a Sept. 21 eucharistic Holy Hour "a powerful witness of faith."

More than 600 people filled St. Francis of Assisi Church for the prayer service led by Archbishop Paul Coakley. Another 1,400 people stood in overflow areas and outdoor prayer gardens to listen to his homily over loud speakers.

The Holy Hour was celebrated as a response to a Satanic "black mass" held the same day in a downtown arena.
