Currently I am working as the field agent for your council and have met with a few people already. However I will not be your councils permanent field agent. Mike Bormann is the General Agent for NE Iowa and is working with me in Decorah and surrounding councils. He is also trying to find the right agent for your council. He has been interviewing a few people around the area and hopes to have an agent take over your council permanently soon.
If you have any more questions feel free to ask. Also, thank you for adding me as a contact.
What: a seminar on prayer in which Fr. Hertges and Tyler Wheeler will explore questions like; what is prayer? What are some different types of prayer? What are some tips and tricks to help me pray better? How can I be more consistent with prayer?
Maybe you’ve never prayed, maybe you’ve started to pray but are hitting some “snags”, maybe you’ve been praying daily for years. Wherever you are in your prayer life, take a little step closer to Christ by taking this night to further explore prayer………..
…………..Plus, we want you there to contribute your own insights and experiences! Your lived wisdom can be of great benefit to someone else, don’t miss the chance to share it!
For: Anyone who has ever prayed or wants to pray.
Where: the Chapel

I bring to your attention a critical effort in the Church:
We Want to Teach! We Want to Be Taught!
"We Want to Teach! We Want to be Taught!" is a grassroots initiative from the laity and religious to request that the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church publish, for the Universal Church, an Ordinary Sunday catechetical lectionary. The implementation of this initiative, which takes place in phases, will help combat the catechesis crisis we face in our Church today.
