On August 5th Archbishop Jackels will have a special Mass in Waverly to honor any couples married 50 years plus.  On August 11th a similar Mass will be in Mason City. We would appreciate being notified of any such couples in our parishes so invitations to these Masses may be sent. If you are aware of any such couples, please contact the office.


At the womb and at the tomb we really know we are dependent on others. The Lord promised and sent the Holy Spirit to be with us during all the days of our lives. That is another great story to tell people who are searching for meaning in life. You can do it, with the Spirit!


Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth more workers for your vineyard. May many of your people choose to serve

You by becoming priests, brothers, and sisters

. (John 20:19-23)
