This weekend’s Mass for Life and Institute of Social Action has been cancelled due to weather concerns.

Tom Chapman of the Iowa Catholic Conference said:

“Following consultation with the bishops, we are canceling this weekend’s Mass for Life and Institute for Social Action. The weather forecast is iffy and concern for peoples’ safety with possible ice on the roads is a priority.”

Please help spread the word to anyone who was planning to go.


Bishop Martin Amos was scheduled to give the homily at the Mass. Next week’s Catholic Messenger editorial will include thoughts from his homily.
