Amarillo—The second of five Deanery Confirmation Masses in the Diocese of Amarillo will take place Saturday, April 30 at 10:30am at St. Mary’s Cathedral, 1200 South Washington.
In an interview in the Dec. 6, 2015 edition of The West Texas Catholic, Bishop Patrick J. Zurek announced that these Confirmation Masses will take place by Deanery and the people of the Deanery will come to the Cathedral.
