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.

We are pleased to share some exciting news with the members of the Altar and Rosary Society!

We are excited to announce that we had over 50 nominations for consideration for the upcoming year's Governing Board. Of those, we are pleased to let you know that 7 excellent candidates have accepted the nomination for the openings on the Governing Board for next year for the Altar and Rosary Society!

After careful consideration by the current Governing Board members, a motion was introduced and seconded at the general meeting held on April 12 "to accept the 7 candidates to fill the 7 openings on our governing board and go directly to the discernment process." This would save the cost and time of the voting process that could be better spent this year getting ready and moving into the new church or to purchase items needed for the new church. The motion was unanimously approved by the 33 attendees.

Therefore, we will then forego the voting process this year only and proceed with the discernment process to identify which Governing Board members will fill each of the positions. Please pray for us during the discernment process! The new board members will be installed at our May 8 meeting.

Please mark your calendar to attend the May 8th meeting as some very important business will be addressed! They are:

Installation of new Governing Board members
Voting on proposed By-law changes
Voting on proposed expenditures for the purchase of gifts from the Altar and Rosary Society for our new church
A potluck dinner provided by the outgoing Governing Board as a "Thank You" to our members for your support this past year

The May 8th meeting will be held at the Council Bluffs Library beginning with the potluck of a taco and salad bar and desserts. The meal will begin at 6:15 pm followed by the Rosary and the business meeting.
