If you need a packet of information, please contact the parish office at 515-964-3038.

  • Sacrament Preparation: When preparing for a sacrament, (1st Eucharist or Confirmation), regular and consistent attendance in a Faith Formation program for the year prior to and the year of sacrament preparation is a pre-requisite for celebration of the sacrament, unless the child/youth participates in a special sacramental process. Please contact the appropriate Session Director with any questions.

Fees:  $100 per child; maximum of $200 per family. (NOTE: No one will be turned away. If you have any financial difficulty, a waiver of fees can be requested. Please contact Tom Primmer, Director of Faith Formation for assistance.

All fees are waived for those who serve as Catechists/Support Staff Volunteers.

What to do if my child is 8 years old and has not received Baptism or is in 3rd grade or older and has not yet received First Communion (Eucharist):

  • Register student for grade-appropriate Faith Formation classes - the preferred time, if available, is Tuesdays at 5:30pm

  • Contact Patty Mayer to arrange for discussion of your child's needs

  • In October students will attend classes specific to the Sacraments twice a month on Tuesdays at 5:30pm (they will need to check in with their regular Faith Formation teacher for attendance purposes, then will go to classroom for sacraments)

  • Those here for Baptism will be Baptized at the Easter Vigil (the night before Easter)
