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.

The Miracle of Braine, France 1153AD

In the 1100s in the city of Braine, France a miracle occurred during a solemn High Mass being celebrated by the local archbishop. Back then, the archbishop had much influence in both the Church and state governance, so many townsfolk came out of respect for the arrival of the Archbishop. Among the diverse townspeople were non-Catholics, too.

During the Mass, at the time of the elevation of the Host, all those present saw a miracle occur: a small child was seen in the archbishop’s hands instead of the host. The event inspired many of the non-Catholics to later be baptized.

🙏I heard a fraction of this today, but the whole is much better.

“By prayer a soul arms itself for all kinds of combat. In whatever state the soul may be, it ought to pray. A soul which is pure and beautiful must pray, or else it will lose its beauty. A soul which is striving after this purity must pray, or else it will never attain it. A soul which is newly converted must pray, or else it will fall again. A sinful soul, plunged in sins, must pray so that it might rise again. There is no soul which is not bound to pray, for every single grace comes to the soul through prayer” (Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska's Diary, par146).
