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.

Would you recognize Jesus on the street if you saw Him? Are you looking for Jesus in others throughout the day?

Be conscious of the Mystical Body of Christ that surrounds you in all the baptized.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Every moment is a “sacrament”.

The infinitesimal span of a moment is a doorway through which God in His eternal omnipotence bestows you the opportunity to receive the divine life of grace.

Every moment is rich with divine life. We have but to open ourselves to God’s presence in that “sacramental” moment.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Life is not a dress rehearsal. Real life is today, not tomorrow. Be fully present to God through everyone you meet today. Do everything today, even the most mundane thing, with great love.
