St. Michael's joined others in the Norman community to celebrate Pride Weekend in May. It was a hot but wonderful weekend sharing Christ's love with our Norman Community! We had a booth at the Pride Festival on Saturday where we gave away the following: over 500 loaves of mini bread loaves baked with love by our parish members, almost 400 inspiration rocks painted by hands young and old, approximately 200 Pride related buttons made by one of our teens, 40 packets of flower seeds, and a beautiful Pride themed lap quilt made by one of our parish members, and most importantly we were Christ's hands and feet in the world!
On the following Sunday evening, we joined in the Pride Parade through downtown Norman. Our float was led by our "Love is Love- No Exceptions" banner featuring our special Pride flower and the words "All are Welcome!" We had almost 30 people of all ages walking or riding with our float. The energy of our group was outstanding. And to top it off, we won the trophy for The Most Colorful float!! Best of all is that we spread the love of Christ to our Norman Community!!
