Bishop Noonan, along with many others in the nation and world, pledge prayers and support for the people of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, struck by tornadoes May 20.

Our hearts ache with the victims of the terrible tornado that struck the town of Moore. We pray for the consolation of all who feel this terrible loss. May all those affected by such pain feel the strength God offers them and the compassion of all who stand with them, be it in their hometown or miles away. We pray for all the people including relief service workers and others affected by this catastrophe.
