Father Colter will return to his normal schedule for his final month with us. In August, he will take three Masses per weekend, hoping that Fr. Seda or someone else will be able to preside at one of the four Masses. Father Colter will take weddings, funerals, and anointings during July and August.

Daily Masses will resume August 3 at 11:30 a.m. We will resume the pre-pandemic schedule with no Daily Mass on Mondays.

On Tuesday, August 3, Father Colter will resume Tuesday morning bible study at 10 AM. No bible study on August 10. Additional dates will be discussed on the 3rd.

On his last weekend, September 4-5, Father Colter is planning to take all four. Our new pastor will be Father Nienhaus beginning on September 7.



By Fr. Jon Seda

For the improving health of Fr. Colter, we give thanks to God. 

Together, Fr. Colter, Archbishop Jackels, and I have decided to end my role as administrator of St. Patrick effective immediately. This makes things cleaner and more effective. I remain available to help with anointings, funerals, etc. upon request at 515-292-1192 or [email protected]

Thank you for your patience during this time.  Fr. Nienhaus is a very blessed priest to be your new pastor in a few months.

This week, we welcome back Fr. Dustin Vu as our celebrant at 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30 AM Masses on Sunday, July 18. Fr. Colter will celebrate 5 PM Mass on Saturday, July 17.
