Key Messages and Events

  • Click the "play" button below to watch a slideshow of pictures from our October 4th Fall Dinner that served over 800 parishioners and friends

  • For written versions of the Holy Father's presentations and homilies while in the U.S., click here.

    The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has created a web page at which you can find links to all of the Holy Father’s formal presentations and homilies during his visit with us.

    The links are to files at the Vatican Library web site. These files are the official versions he planned to give at each event, but not necessarily word for word representations of them, as he is noted for departing from his prepared texts to follow his heart. There is great wealth in these writings, and they will be quoted in future papal documents for many years to come.
