St Patrick future church design
Located 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.

Below is an excerpt from the blessing used by Bishop Pates on Holy Thursday to bless the sacred chrism. Chrism is used in Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Orders, and to consecrate new altars and new churches. I encourage you to reflect on it and be mindful of how you and the new church are "set apart" for the glory of God.

“And so, Father, we ask you to bless this oil you have created. Fill it with the power of your Holy Spirit through Christ your Son. It is from him that chrism takes its name and with chrism you have anointed for yourself priests and kings, prophets and martyrs. Make this chrism a sign of life and salvation….when they are anointed with this holy oil make them temples of your glory, radiant with the goodness of life that has its source in you.

Through this sign of chrism grant them royal, priestly, and prophetic honor, and clothe them with incorruption. Let this be indeed the chrism of salvation for those who will be born again of water and the Holy Spirit.”
