1. Sunday in October: The month of Mary, we will say 1 Decade of the Rosary before 9 am Mass. Please try to come early & join in, then try to finish the Rosary when you are at home.

2. World Mission Sunday Collection: This collection is scheduled today. World Mission Sunday gathers support for the pastoral and evangelizing programs and needs of more than 1,150 mission dioceses in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and remote regions of Latin America. The funds gathered on World Mission Sunday are distributed in the pope’s name by the Society for the Propagation of the Faith-a Pontifical Mission Society.

4. Andrew Dinner - Des Moines: Young men who are high school juniors or older interested in learning more about the vocation of priesthood are invited to a great evening of prayer, good food, and fun with priests in the greater Des Moines area and Bishop Joensen. Dinner is at St. Theresa Parish, 1230 Merle Hay Road in Des Moines from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Tuesday, October 29, 2019. Saint Andrew, in the Gospel according to John, brought Simon Peter to meet Jesus. Like Saint Andrew, all Catholics should look in men for qualities needed to be a good priest and encourage them to listen for God’s call. Be like Saint Andrew and invite a friend to come with you! For food ordering, we kindly request you RSVP. Please contact your parish priest, email Father Ross Parker or call 515-237-5014.
