Bishop William Joensen to celebrate Mass at St. Cecilia opening the Advent Season, November 30, 5pm

Recently ordained Bishop William (Bill) Joensen, Bishop of Des Moines, and native son of our parish, will be here to preside at the 5 p.m. Mass on Saturday, November 30th.  It will give us as his home parish the opportunity to offer our congratulations and prayerful support to him as he begins his ministry as a Bishop since most of us were not able (due to space limitations) to be physically present for his Ordination Mass as Bishop on September 27th.  He will be bringing with him and using the silver Pastoral Staff (Crosier) which was our parish gift to him.  I hope many of us will be able to be present to welcome Bishop Joensen “back home.”
