The Diocese of Des Moines

Contact Human Resources

The Human Resources Office provides services for all areas related to employment for the diocesan central offices and Catholic Charities.  We assist other departments, parishes and schools in meeting their staffing goals, developing job descriptions, managing job performance, writing and interpreting policies.  We also provide support in areas of compensation, employee relations and benefits administration. 

Human Resources staff is also committed to the protection of the children of the diocese, carrying out this mission by overseeing the background screening process and providing procedures to assure that all employees and volunteers are adequately trained in the diocese’s Safe Environment Program.
The Human Resources Office is located at the Catholic Pastoral Center, 601 Grand Avenue in Des Moines.  Human Resources is open between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday.
