News: Diocese humming with plans for episcopal ordination
August, 21, 2019
Plans are underway for the Sept. 27 ordination and installation of Bishop-elect William Joensen as the 10th bishop of the Des Moines diocese. The event at St. Francis in WDM is expected to draw a full house so tickets will be required for admittance. Watch our diocesan website or Facebook.com/dmdiocese to see the ordination and installation. The public is invited to evening prayer, also known as vespers, on Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. at St. Ambrose Cathedral, and a reception at the Ron Pearson Center in WDM immediately following the installation.
