On Sunday, February 22, our the candidates and catecumens gathered at the Cathedral in downtown Des Moines to receive the Rite of Election. Bishop Pates was on hand to worship with the group that had come from all the Catholic churches throughout out diocese. Please pray for these men and women as they begin the final phase of preparation for full initiation into the Church at Easter Vigil.
During 5 Masses held on Ash Wednesday, February 18, parishioners from Sacred Heart Church came together to prepare for the season of Lent. As Father Hess said in our bulletin this week, "Because our lives are not perfect and we do not always live as people of faith, the Church calls upon us to use the 40 days of Lent as a time of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving."
