Baptisms: We are now scheduling October classes.  August and September classes are full.  Contact Jim or Cindy Roberts (563-870-4428) before planning or setting a Baptism date.  Due to the high number of Baptisms in the Pastorate, classes fill quickly so allow several months to be scheduled into a class. All parents planning a Baptism need attend a Baptism class.  Baptisms typically do not take place during Advent or Lent.  ALL BAPTISM AND WEDDING CLASSES WILL BE HELD IN PERSON STARTING IN AUGUST.

RCIA: If you are interested, or know someone in our Pastorate who is interested, in becoming Catholic, contact Jim or Cindy at 563-870-4428.  Classes begin in September.

If you have have a change to your address, phone number (such as dropping a landline), or family status, please contact the Pastorate office at 563-870-4041 or email dbq104Sec@dbqarch.org with your new information.  This is especially important for those who had a Route 52 address change due to the highway renaming.  Thank you for helping to keep our Pastorate information up to date!
