Choir/Music Ministry

We invite you to be a part of a diverse choir that truly represents the people of the diocese with singers and musicians who share their gifts with us for diocesan liturgies at St. Ambrose Cathedral in Des Moines and in Council Bluffs. We're looking for people who can sing a variety of parts who come from all over the diocese. We also welcome those interested in sharing their gifts and various cultural styles of music.

Liturgy with the Bishop

Have you invited the bishop to celebrate liturgy with your parish, school or group? Contact liturgist, Kim Mandelkow, as soon as you have the date so you can begin collaborating on the readings, music, who will fill various roles and more.

Personal Visits

Would you like someone to visit your parish and provide some feedback on how your music ministry can grow? Consider contacting diocesan Worship director Kim Mandelkow at 515-237-5012.
