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.


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.
