Bishop Pates announces Fortnight for Freedom.

The Diocese of Des Moines has proposed fourteen days of special events highlighting the shared Christian and American heritage of liberty. This special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action has been dubbed the "Fortnight for Freedom." 

As part of this time of celebration, we invite you to join us at the Independence Celebration Walk and Picnic on Sunday, July 1. The walk starts at St. Ambrose Cathedral, culminating in a picnic at the State Capitol. For more information visit:
