Ministries of the Church Life Commission include:
God's Helping Hands is a group of concerned parishioners who help meet the spiritual and social needs of parishioners by bringing Eucharist to the homebound, sending cards at a time of celebration or need, providing transportation to Mass, visiting hospital patients, leading Word and Communion services in Care Centers, and leading the rosary at Care Centers and at funeral homes.
God's Helping Hands meet the first Thursday of April-December, at 9AM in the Social Hall. Please join us!
If you, or someone you know, would like to be visited by one of our members, please contact the Ministry Leader or the parish office 319-337-2856.
The parish bulletin is also mailed to those who request it. Please contact the parish office to begin receiving one by mail. The bulletin can also be emailed by signing up at the home page of this website.
St. Anne's Helpers do many handicrafts in addition to making quilts. We sponsor the fall bazaar and do many extras for the parish, such as making the banners in church. No sewing skills are required.
We meet every Tuesday after the morning Mass at 9:00am in the St. Anne's Room-lower level. All are welcome to join the group at any time.
The St. Anne Helpers have set the date! Annual Fall Bazaar Oct. 26 & 27, 2019.
Senior Epiphany Party is a great activity filled with fun and laughter during the Christmas season, usually a Saturday in early January near Epiphany. Senior parish members enjoy a prayer service and blessing from Fr. Rudy and the party committee serves a meal. Wise Men(Guys?) help lead the group in song and parish youth re-enact the Nativity as entertainment. A great service project for Confirmation youth!
Supervised by VIRTUS-trained volunteers who staff the nursery during the 10:00am Mass, for infants through three years old.
Parents are asked to arrive at Mass a few minutes early to check-in their child at the nursery. VIRTUS-trained volunteers are always welcome to help!
We NEED YOUR time/talents so this ministry can continue during 10am Mass!
Noah’s Nursery (Birth-3 yrs) has a great director but she needs volunteers and parents for coverage this Summer and the Fall.
If we have at least one adult and one teen volunteer OR two adult volunteers, the Nursery will be able to provide care for several children.
Please make sure that your contact information is up to date on Flocknote.
Spanish Mass-contact Piedad Rangel or Socorro Ortiz.
Thank you for your stewardship of time:)!
