The Archdiocese is recommending masks at all events held indoors in order to stop the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus.  The Pastoral Center is asking their partners in ministry and visitors to wear a mask indoors.  This will hopefully a temporary safety measure to stop the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus. This recommendation will be re-evaluated as circumstances change.  The greater our compliance with the request to be vaccinated and the recommendation to wear a mask indoors, the sooner the pandemic will be over.



We are in need of liturgical ministers to fill our liturgical roles.  See the bulletin for details.

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

Baptisms: We are now scheduling February, March, and April classes   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.
