Welcome

Street Project

The city plans on reconstruction of Harmony St. to occur from July to the end of the year. Sewers, sidewalks, water main, and the street will be replaced. Daily Mass will still be held at the church.

Time, Talent, and Treasure

Figure out what issue you care about. Volunteer your time in prayer, adoration, or putting your talents to use for the St. Patrick’s family.   There are many organizations and church groups to allow you to utilize the talents God has given you.  All of the activities will provide a deep and a fulfilling sense of duty towards the Church and some allow for the busy lives of the growing family.  If time and talent are not available, there is the continuing project of funding our new church, donations of medical equipment, and setting-up Automatic Tithing.

St Patrick future church designLocated in the heart of Council Bluff, Iowa at 223 Harmony St, St. Patrick’s Church was founded in 1924 as the city’s fourth Catholic parish.  In the years following that, a St. Patrick’s school was built and decades later merged into St. Albert’s schools.  Major renovations on the inside and outside of the church occurred in many of the decades since being built, and now the turn of the next century, a new church is being built to serve the over 850 registered families. The site of the new location is positioned at the corner of Valley View Drive and College Rd, situated across from the Iowa Western Community College campus and College View Elementary. Details on the new church can be viewed on the Building Project page.


Let it not be said that there is a lack of ways to stay involved in the parish. There are activities for young and old, men and women. The Knights of Columbus, Serra Club, and Catholic Daughters of America are all well-established national organizations in the parish. The Women’s Book Club and That Man is You are both recently adopted faith formation groups. There is also RCIA for prospective Catholics and numerous events throughout the year for children. Lay Ministries are also an excellent method of being involved in the Mass service whether Altar Serving, Cantoring, Lecturing, Ushering, or Eucharistic Ministry.

The whole day of the ground breaking last Sunday on 9/11 went very well. I am very proud of all who who have taken part in supporting the new church and all those who made the day special.

It was a treat to have Bishop Pates preside at an outdoor Mass. It was particularly serrendipitous to have the Confirmation of Austin Thies and Jamee Decker that day.

Even as we think of building the physical Church it was great to combine that with building up the spiritual Church through Confirmation that day.

It was nice to have the children participate in the shovelling of dirt.
Photos to follow.

Peace to everyone!!
