Are you divorced or separated?

2 weeks or 20 years???
You deserve the fullness of Truth about....
You also deserve support from people that understand.
Please join us on Wednesday evenings beginning June 6th from 6:30-8:00 pm in the St. Patrick's Parlor.
We will feature a powerful DVD program with real-life testimonies and top Catholic experts. 

"After I heard St. Patrick church was offering this program, my first thought was how I wish there had been such a program offered by my church when I was going through my divorce several years ago. My next thought was how this would play out with a group of divorced people in one room. 


After attending all 12 sessions, I discovered what the program wasn’t. It wasn’t a live. It wasn’t an evening spent bashing your EX. And it wasn’t group therapy sessions. 


I found out that the Surviving Divorce Program is a program based on Catholic teachings. Teachings which assured me, as a divorced person, that God and His church are here to support me. In the videos are brave people who share their experiences as divorced persons; as well as expert lay people and priests who give sound, compassionate advice. Because of this program, I felt the church, “The Body of Christ”, opening Her arms to me and giving me a healing embrace for the first  time. I now feel loved and supported by my church. "

Welcome to St. Patrick Catholic Church of Iowa City. As many of you know, our beloved church was destroyed by a tornado on Holy Thursday evening, 2006. Our congregation's tremendous faith and efforts have led us to a new beginning. On November 29, 2009 Bishop Martin Amos dedicated our new church building at 4330 St. Patrick Drive. Please join our active parish community for a friendly and welcoming Saturday afternoon (4:30pm) or Sunday (7:30am, 10am, 12pm-Spanish) Mass. To join us, travel east from Scott Boulevard on Lower West Branch Road.
