Yes.
When we lived in the Tulsa diocese, the bishop encouraged Friday adoration to pray for priests and in reparation for the scandals in the church.

Tulsa is still considered mission territory for Catholics, but the Osage tribe has many Catholics, thanks to the sisters who ran local schools.

They still remembers that French Catholics who rescued some of their men who were stranded when a "wild west" show went bankrupt.
A couple years ago, some people from that town came to visit, and we had a Mass with them, with readings in English, Osage and French.
