Spring Cleaning at the Cemetery

If you want to keep any displays, flowers, and other decorations at the grave sites of loved ones, please remove them before April 6. The committee will be cleaning up the cemetery to prepare for Spring and will dispose of decorations that are outdated, tattered, or soiled on April 6. Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact Laurie Phelan, 515 201-6111.

Our two Catholic Churches are located in Northern Polk County.  St. Mary Church is located in the town of Elkhart, Iowa, and Holy Cross Church is located East of Elkhart near Farrar, Iowa.  Our membership consists of a diverse group drawing from many communities in the area - Alleman, Altoona, Ames, Ankeny, Baxter, Bondurant, Cambridge, Colfax, Collins, Des Moines, Elkhart, Huxley, Maxwell, Mingo, Mitchellville, Nevada, Polk City, Prairie City, Sheldahl, and Slater.  You are welcome to contact us or stop by and visit us at any of the Mass times posted on this site.  Thank you.
