Our Lady's Immaculate Heart and St. Luke Parishes in Ankeny are hosting a St. Monica Mass for the intention of those who have left the Church on Wednesday, Aug. 27. Last year, more than 200 people attended! This is an opportunity for those who are praying hard for their loved ones to come back to the Church to gather together with the same intention. St. Monica, through her prayer, converted her husband and mother-in-law to the Catholic Church. Thanks to her prayers, her son also changed his ways and eventually became St. Augustine. Mass will be at Our Lady's Immaculate Heart, 501 E. 1st St. in Ankeny beginning at 6:30 p.m. Food, fellowsip and the sharing of a personal story will follow. Helpful resources will also be available. All are invited.
