Consecration Mass with Bishop Joensen

Join us for the Consecration to St. Joseph Mass during this Year of St. Joseph. Bishop William Joensen will celebrate an outdoor Mass under a tent and lead the consecration on Sunday, August 15 at 4 p.m. at St. Patrick Parish in Irish Settlement. There will be a picnic dinner of burgers and hot dogs afterwards, catered by HyVee. There is no charge, though free will donations encouraged. Bring a lawn chair or blanket along since chairs are limited. 

This is a beautiful short drive to the country. Bring friends and family! If you would like to start the 33-day process with us to coincide with our August 15 consecration, you'll start the prayers on Wednesday, July 14. These prayers will be said every day on Iowa Catholic Radio at 3:20 p.m. Or you can find them in Father Donald Calloway's book, "Consecration to St. Joseph." But if you can't get started that day, don't worry! We'd still love to see you on August 15! 

Let us know you'll join us on Facebook!
