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

Baptisms: August class will be held online or outdoors.  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 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 or call 563-870-4041.
