Oklahoma City, Okla., Apr 16, 2020 / 23:55 pm America/Denver (CNA).
Archbishop Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City will celebrate Mass April 17 across the street from a memorial commemorating the 1995 terror attack that killed nearly 170 people.
“These were our family members, our friends, co-workers and neighbors. We are grateful for their lives and we will never forget their sacrifice,” Coakley said April 16.
The anniversary of the bombings— which remain the deadliest domestic terror attack in American history— this year falls on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 19.
Coakley will celebrate Mass at the city’s downtown Saint Joseph Old Cathedral, with a livestream available.
“When we experience darkness and loss, Jesus shelters us and gives us hope,” Coakley continued.
