2020 Thanksgiving Pies

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! The Pie Committee is seeking donations of flour, sugar, and other items and looking for extra freezer space for pie crusts. We are also looking for volunteers to help make crusts, pies, etc and plan to sell pies after masses from October 18 through November 8.

For more information, see the Pie Flyer.

St Patrick future church design
Located in the heart of Council Bluff, Iowa at 4 Valley View Dr., St. Patrick 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 has been 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 how the new church was built 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 Altar and Rosary Society and Women’s Book Club are two groups providing a number of activities for ladies of the parish. Lay Ministries are also an excellent method of being involved in the Mass service whether Altar Serving, Cantoring, Lecturing, Ushering, or Eucharistic Ministry. There is also RCIA for prospective Catholics and numerous events throughout the year for children.
