Welcome to Saint Benedicts
Welcome to the parish website of Saint Benedict Catholic Church in Broken Arrow Oklahoma! I am glad you found us and are visiting. I encourage you to look around on the website and experience who we are and are called to be through the many different ministries and activities were are involved in. Through these we strive to live our the call of Saint Benedict to “prefer nothing to Christ”, for it is through giving our lives over to Christ that we give witness to our Catholic Christian faith.
Ours is a parish made up of the people from many walks of life, and our over 1,800 families range in age from children in their mother’s womb to those nearing 100, from large to small families. We are from over 15 different countries and from the cities of Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Coweta, Catoosa, Sand Springs, Bixby, Sapulpa, Mannford, Haskell and as far away as Dewey.
As you experience Saint Benedict virtually in our website we invite to come experience us in “real time” at one of our Masses or educational or social activities. We invite you to walk with us, along side of us in the footsteps of Jesus, to the Father, lead by the Holy Spirit.
May the Lord bless and keep you always,
