ELEVATOR ENTRANCE DOORS:

When you exit the elevator entrance, please check to see that both doors are completely closed. We frequently find the north door open. We need to be vigilant so that the Church is secure and protected against cold weather or snow.


IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER

Mass cancellations are called in to the local radio station KQWC and Pat Powers also
puts that on Facebook and other media sites. It is also called in to WHO and KCCI TV stations. Please listen to the radio, check the television stations and/or the TV websites. It may take some time for the TV notices to update, so please check frequently.


NOTE OF THANKS……thank you to those who faithfully clean the Church each week so that our worship space is prepared for our celebration at Mass. We are grateful to them for their sharing of their time. We invite you to think about volunteering to help them in the coming year.


USHERS/GREETERS NEEDED!!

We are asking once again for volunteers to be ushers/greeters at Mass. Both the Sat, 5 pm and the Sun, 10 am teams do not have enough people. Please consider as a family or as an individual to help. Call the office 832-1190 or see Marty Doerning.


Knights of Columbus Can Drive for Seminarians

The Knights of Columbus are collecting cans for Archdiocese of Dubuque Seminarians. You can call for pick-up: Dennis 297-1602, John 712-249-3060 or Kyle 515-293-0026. These Knights would stop and pick them up for you, or you can take them directly to the redemption center and designate to KC’s. Thank you.


DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR UPDATE

Facility Master Planning

Assessment of Needs Survey-This is an additional survey that was distributed to those in attendance when we met with the architects on Feb 5th. If you have a survey that hasn’t been
turned in yet, please do so as soon as possible. These surveys are being sent directly to the architects. If you did not get a needs assessment but would like to provide your input, there
are copies available on the table in the parish center foyer. Please take one and return it to the church office.

Project Committee-We have formed a project committee that will be working with the architects as they work on the assessment of our facilities. This group will meet every 4-6
weeks or as needed as we move along with our facility planning. If you are interested in joining this group, contact the church office.
