Special Collection for Hurricane Irma

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has asked for an emergency collection to be taken up on September 23 and September 24 for the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma. We will take up this collection, together with the Religious Education Collection, as the Second Collection on September 23 and September 24.  All gold Religious Education envelopes will go toward the Religious Education collection.  All loose checks and cash will support Hurricane Irma.  While this request comes so soon after the emergency collection for Hurricane Harvey, we truly appreciate your generosity, and most of all your prayers, for all those affected by Hurricane Irma.

Rosary for Healing

Please join Bishop Burbidge on Friday September 8 at 1:30pm by praying a Rosary for Racial Healing. The Rosary will be prayed across the Diocese through the use of a conference call.  Please call 641-715-3580 and use pass code 951981 to join the call with the Bishop.
