Special Collections

In living our daily faith, we praise God for our blessings. In gratitude, we share our time, talents, and treasures to benefit others, as we are called to do in the name of our Father. Diocese of Des Moines parish members have multiple opportunities to support the Church and the Church’s outreach ministries to bring hope to people less fortunate and spread the Good News.  

 

Collections are due to the Diocese of Des Moines Finance Department within two weeks from date collected.
