Mass Schedules

Patriotic Rosary: Holy Cross Church each Saturday, 9:00 am.  It will be cancelled in the event of a funeral or wedding at the church.

We are in need of liturgical ministers to fill our liturgical roles.  Call the church office, 563-870-4041, if you can share your talent(s) with the Pastorate.

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

Baptisms: We are now scheduling September and October 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. All parents planning a Baptism need attend a Baptism class. Baptisms typically do not take place during Advent or Lent.

Informational Changes: PLEASE HELP!!! If you 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.

If you are celebrating a special anniversary and would like to have an anniversary blessing or Mass offered, call the Pastorate office at 870-4041.
