Throughout this year, we are celebrating the Year for Consecrated Life. Each issue of The Catholic Mirror has had a story on a different religious community that has served the Diocese of Des Moines. This Sunday, in celebration of this special year, there will be a Mass honoring those in consecrated life who serve our diocese. They will be honored at the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday at St. Ambrose Cathedral. Join us in thanking these men and women for answering their vocational call to religious life and for serving the people of God in southwest Iowa.
