Welcome

Annual Cookie Walk

For years now, parishioners have been baking batches of their favorite Christmas cookies to exchange with others and to raise a few dollars for the church at this VERY POPULAR event. You can support this family and parish tradition by baking cookies at home or as a group. You and your children can also help by decorating and volunteering for the Cookie Walk Day itself.

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.

COOKIE WALK
Sat., Dec. 3 7am - 11am at Saint Albert cafeteria

The Cookie Walk is a neat concept. I can't say I had heard of it before coming to St. Patrick's but I very much see the value in it. It is a neat thing to see what everyone in the parish makes for Christmas cookies. The decorating of them is great, too.

If you'd like to participate, make some cookies and drop them off on Friday. (9am-3pm at the office, 3pm - 8pm at St. Albert cafeteria).

Then whether you've made cookies or not, come to SA on Saturday morning and buy a bucket of cookies. The variety is what it's all about.

The first time I went I was amazed at how many people showed up early to get cookies. Definitely come early as the selection is best at the beginning.

If you've never been to the Cookie Walk I encourage you to check it out. It is a fun part of the Advent season.

ADVENT REFLECTION
Sat., Dec. 3 9am - Noon St. Pat's hall

Bishop Joseph Charron will be with us this coming Saturday to prepare our minds and hearts for Advent.

Bishop Charron was with us in Easter and gave a reflection in the parish hall which was very well attended. Many of his insights from the Easter reflection have been included on the parish's facebook page.

Bishop Charron has a spiritual insight that is profound and accessible to anyone, no matter where they are at on their faith journey.

Please let others know of this opportunity. It is a simple way to begin the Advent season right.
