The Diocese of Des Moines

Novos is a community of young Catholics, broken and in need of healing, assured of that healing in Jesus Christ and His Church.  Dedicated to building community through faith, Novos meets weekly (usually, but not always, on Thursdays) to celebrate and grow in our faith with one another.  If you are looking to find a community of Catholics who are serious about faith, service, and prayer, please join us--new members of the community are always welcome!


Upcoming Novos Events

Thursday, June 7th: Bike Ride


Meet at St. Francis of Assisi parish in West Des Moines for a 6pm start.  We'll bike to Fox Brewing, enjoy a responsible amount of cold ones, then head back to St. Francis in time to arrive before it gets dark. 


NOTE: if you have an extra bike, and are willing to let someone else ride it, please post as such on the Facebook event page, as there are a number of Novos folks who don't have a bike, but would love to join for this.


Thursday, June 14th: Jasper Winery Summer Concert Series


Join us at Jasper Winery for one of their free concert events--more info found here.  If you're lost, look for the Novos leaders wearing their black Novos t-shirts.


Thursday, June 21st: Really cool thing TBD--just need to get some pieces locked in :)


Stay tuned--this is going to be awesome.


Thursday, June 28th: Mass & Brews


Join us around the Lord's table at St. Ambrose for Mass celebrated by Bishop Pates himself.  Confessions will begin at 6:15pm, there will be a rosary at 6:45, Mass will begin at 7:00, and after Mass we'll head to a nearby bar for some good food, drink, and fellowship.
