Please call the parish office if you would like Fr. Meyer to visit you during a hospital stay, or you are in need of pastoral care or prayer support. With the privacy laws, health care facilities can only call us if specified by the patient. Call 832-1190. Also, if you or a loved one are home-bound, please call the parish office to make arrangements for a minister to visit and bring communion.
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.
SENIOR COMPANIONSHIP MINISTRY
Senior Companionship Ministry is a ministry that supports shut-ins in our community. As part of this ministry, you will be paired with an elderly individual who may be homebound or in a nursing home. Your role will be to be a friend, visit this person, and listen and be present to this person. Other roles that fall under this ministry are possibly helping this person get to Mass, picking up prescriptions, and/or helping this individual get to an appointment. Please contact the office for more details.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is the first Friday of every month from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. We are in need of someone to take the 11am to noon hour. Please contact the office to volunteer. Some have asked if that is just for people who are scheduled because it is necessary for someone to always be present during those hours. The answer is that Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is for everyone. Come for any length of time that works with your schedule throughout that day.
There are greeting cards available for purchase in the parish office for Father Meyer’s 40th Ordination to the priesthood and Dan Hurt’s ordination to the Diaconate. They are $2.50 each. There are varied choices of cards.
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.
