Ministries & Faith Formation


We offer resources and opportunities to thousands of youth in 80 parishes throughout central and southwest Iowa, encouraging them to come pray, study and help others as they grow more deeply in their relationship with God and each other.

We also offer individual, small group and large group options for young adults and families. Students studying on campuses throughout our diocese are served by a range of outreach ministries through our Campus Ministry program. And we have resources for the deaf community and those who struggle with physical or intellectual challenges.

We have opportunities for the youngest to the oldest, single and married, newcomer or native of our communities.

Join us on the journey!
