  • Need before and/or after school care? La Salle Catholic School in Holy Cross offers school care from 6:30 am until bus pick up and after school until 6:00 pm. 563-870-2405.



Weddings: Contact Fr. Diehm (563-870-4041) at least one year in advance of planning a wedding.

Baptisms: November class will be held online.  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 (the first Tuesday of each month, except on holidays).  Baptisms typically do not take place during Advent or Lent.

Informational Changes: 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.  Thank you for helping to keep our Pastorate information up to date!

Pastorate Office Update: If there are any announcements that parish members need to have noted in the bulletin, please contact Connie at dbq104@dbqarch.org or call 563-870-4041.

If you are requesting a Mass for a loved one, please remember to make all checks payable to the La Salle Mass Fund and mail all payments to the Pastorate office at 835 Church St., PO Box 398, Holy Cross, IA  52053.
