EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS!

Tuition is low compared to many parochial schools, the state of Iowa offers tuition tax credit, and many families qualify for tuition assistance.

HELPFUL LINKS IN TRYING TIMES

SUPPORT ST. PATRICK

Ways to give include EFT, mail, and the donation baskets at Mass. It's also easy to give online any time! We know that some of you are facing difficult times with jobs and businesses and we welcome your gift of prayer. Note that a small fee is deducted from online donations. Using your bank account rather than a credit card maximizes your online gift to Saint Patrick Church.

 

Want to support Catholic education too? Has St. Patrick School made a difference in the life of someone you know? Is there a special place in your heart for Catholic education? The school is still accepting gifts to the 2021 Annual Appeal for the Student IMPACT Fund.  Read more, print a donation form, or give a gift online.

CATHOLIC CHARITIES HELPS VULNERABLE


Did you know that individual contributions make up nearly 50 percent of Catholic Charities’ annual operating budget? Every gift is important and every gift helps! As the social service arm of the Catholic Church, Catholic Charities’ work to the most vulnerable among us is critical. Make your contribution to the Catholic Charities Annual Appeal today by mailing your gift to Catholic Charities, 1229 Mt. Loretta Ave, Dubuque 52001 or by donating online.
