Our clustered faith communities invite you to explore our joint website.
And we hope it prompts you to visit and worship with us in person!
We have just received an Automated External Defibrillator for each cluster parish. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation, and is able to treat them through the application of electricity which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.
With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the lay person. In other words, they can save lives.
We do need to know if any of our parishioners are certified in CPR and/or are interested in learning how to use this equipment. Devices will be installed in each parish as soon as training is complete. Training is online via HeartSine.
The cost for each device, a HeartSine Samaritan 450P PAD, including the required accessories, is about $1,450.00 for each one. They were ordered from ThinkSafe in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Let Carol or Father Mike know of your interest in learning how to use these devices.Click here to edit text

The Salvation Army, 1116 S. Gilbert Court, Iowa, City, is desperately seeking volunteer servers and helpers who are Christians to join their fight against hunger and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the homeless, the under-employed, and lonely people who come to their Soup Kitchen each evening at 5 pm. They serve a hot meal to an average of 50-70 people per evening. They have an excellent cook, an industrial kitchen with a commercial stove and dishwasher, food, supplies and dining area but they do not have enough men and women who love the Lord (and fellow neighbors) to help serve the food and clean up after the meal. Call 337-3725 for more information or to volunteer to help fill this need.
