 Sacred Heart Cathedral Campaign
In an effort to make Sacred Heart Cathedral in Davenport a place for all diocesan Catholics to call home, Bishop Martin Amos has requested a campaign to enhance the cathedral’s hospitality and welcoming presence. The cathedral has a great need for additional restrooms, handicap-accessible entrances and a place to gather before and after diocesan celebrations. Please support Cathedral Sunday (Feb. 15) and make your cathedral a welcoming place for all of our diocesan and liturgical events!
Please watch a video about Sacred Heart Cathedral.

Immigration Prayer Card

From Bishop Amos:

The Holy Father has challenged us to proclaim our faith values; and he has specifically addressed the threats to dignity, and even of life itself, of migrants. 

My fellow Iowa bishops and I have issued a Statement on Immigration Reform through the Iowa Catholic Conference.  This statement underlies all of our Church teachings.  It applies from the moment of conception to the last moments of life and encompasses all people on earth. 

We recognize that not only are the vast majority of the people of Iowa of immigrant descent but that even our Catholic faith is an immigrant to this great state and nation.
