Call for Action on Advance Directives Legislation


The bishops of Texas through the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops (TCCB), with one exception, are calling on the faithful from throughout the state to contact their respective state senator and state representative to urge the lawmakers to support SB 1944/HB 3099 which reforms the Texas Advance Directives Act and to oppose SB 917/HB 2609 which eliminates the dispute resolution process.

Important - Revised COVID Protocols for Mass


Beginning Sunday, April 11, at every Mass, St. Patrick Cathedral will open up all pews for parishioners. We will require a physical distance of three feet between individuals or families. The Parish Hall will continue to be available for parishioners and families who feel more comfortable in that setting.


Guidelines for attending Mass remain the same:
• All participants will be required to wear a face mask or other face covering.
• During communion, communicants will be allowed to go to communion row by row in an orderly fashion, minding social distancing, so that there is no bunching up of people in line.
• Communion will only be distributed in the hand.

Please read Bishop Olson's newest pastoral letter to all priests, deacons, seminarians, religious men and women, and faithful laity of the Diocese of Fort Worth to maintain current safety protocols.

Catholic Charities Fort Worth Emergency Special Collection


Catholic Charities is unable to accept any new applications for financial assistance at this time.  Both COVID‐19 and Winter Storm Uri have created a widespread need in our communities, and there are thousands already on their waitlist. To illustrate how truly dire the need is, it would take $4.2 million to serve their existing clients alone, not counting those who reached out for the first time in the aftermath of the snowstorms in North Texas. 


If you can, please give next weekend or online at

Bishop Olson Introductory Statement to USCCB Addressing Ethical Concerns on The New Covid-19 Vaccines


The Bishop-Chairmen of the USCCB’s Doctrine Committee and Pro-Life Committee in issuing this statement, after seeking sound counsel from reliable sources, are appealing to the Principle of Material Cooperation to assure the faithful that they are not objectively sinning by being immunized with these vaccines despite their morally compromised and distant origins in connection with the grave evil of abortion.
