DES MOINES — The annual Legislative Mass of the Iowa Catholic Conference will be Tuesday, Feb. 8, at 6 p.m. at St. Ambrose Cathedral in Des Moines. Des Moines Bishop Richard Pates will preside. All are invited.
The Mass, organized by the Iowa Catholic Conference, is intended to bring Catholics together with state legislators to pray for wisdom in decision-making for all those who serve in government.
“We encourage everyone to come to the legislative Mass to pray with our legislators,” said Tom Chapman, executive director of the Conference. “We will also pray in thanksgiving for their service to the people of Iowa.”
The bishops will also have their annual breakfast for legislators on Feb. 9 at the capitol.
