Easter Mass Times

Welcome to Saint Catherine of Siena Catholic parish and Student Center, affectionately known as Saint Kate’s. We are a small parish with many missions, delighting in our diversity of ages and the significant missions entrusted to us.

We are a Catholic Student Center, offering a home away from home to some 1,000 young men and women attending Drake University. We are also the headquarters of the Diocesan Office of Campus Ministry, reaching out to an estimated 10,000 college students on 12 campuses.

We are a parish of young families, with children from birth through high school. We take inspiration from the faith of our children and the commitment of their parents.

We are a parish enriched by the presence of individuals facing challenges, including the Deaf Community of Des Moines, who participate fully in the life of the parish, serving as lectors, Eucharistic ministers, parish council and more.

We are a parish committed to social justice and to helping those in need. College students and resident parishioners partner to serve our community and beyond.

We are a parish of older adults, retirees and empty nesters, who enjoy the spirit of a small parish and the chance to connect with young people through student ministry.

We are a parish of many generations, single and married, all sharing one faith.   We invite you to join us in prayer and worship, fellowship and service to others. There is a place for you here. 

We invite you to join Saint Kate’s.
