At Home Devotions
As we strive to become a parish of intentional disciples who make time for personal and communal prayer, we will be praying with as special devotion each month.
Traditionally the month of April has been dedicated to devotion to The Holy Spirit. This month’s recommended devotion is scheduled to go live on our Facebook page on Thursday, April 15 at 7pm and more details will be announced soon so check back later.
When available you’ll be able to download a copy of this month’s devotion by clicking here.
As we continue through the challenges of capacity and gathering limitations, we want to continue to find ways to be connected to one another and grow spiritually even while we’re physically separated.
The Saturday Scripture class is back in session…for more info and to register contact Deacon John Weber.
Check out the Youth Ministry page to find offerings and events for teens.
Daily Masses & Private Prayer: Daily Masses are now being held at 9:00am Monday-Friday. Outside of the time for Mass, the Church will also be open for private prayer from 8:00am-4:00pm Monday-Friday.
Regular Confession Schedule: (Saturdays, 4:00-4:45pm)
Parish Offices Now Open: The parish office is now open with staff available Monday-Friday from 8:00am-4:30pm. You can also call the office at 563-359-0345 for more information.
Weekend Masses will continue for the foreseeable future with attendance limitations, yet many of our expenses occur whether or not we have large attendance at Mass (payroll, insurance, utilities, and the like). When you continue your offertory, whether through online giving or sending your contribution in the mail, it allows us to fulfill our mandate to make disciples of all nations.

Even as Church and many business reopen we still need help checking in on those parish neighbors who many need some extra help and connection. We’re looking for people who are willing to:
- run errands (pick up grocery orders, pharmacy orders, etc…)
- make phone calls to check in on people once or twice a week
- send notes or cards
We’ve gathered together a number of resources to help you face these uncertain days.
