The Wild Goose: Discovering a Deeper Relationship with the Holy Spirit

Beginning on June 3, St. Mark will be offering a special video series following Monday daily Masses. We will be using the program Wild Goose: Discovering a Deeper Relationship with the Holy Spirit. We will be gathering in the parish hall each Monday for 6 weeks. It is helpful if you can attend all but it is not necessary. Any questions, please contact Renee Colwell at (641) 373-1799.




Mark your calendars for the 2020 Archdiocesan Women’s Conference, Beauty in Christ: Fearless. Faithful. On Fire! Saturday, January 25, Doubletree by Hilton, Cedar Rapids. Dynamic speakers, Hallie Lord, and Katie Prejean, with Archbishop Jackels presiding at Mass. Please contact your sisters, mothers, daughters, and friends to save-the-date!

Several women from the linkage attended the 2019 Archdiocesan Women’s Conference on January 26: Read about it here.

Alpha: an Adult Faith Formation Opportunity

Beginning in September, the Alpha series for adults of any age will be offered in our Linkage. Alpha is a series of video talks that explores the different questions around faith and unpacks the basics of Christianity. After viewing the video (generally 30 minutes), there is small group discussion to share thoughts and ideas on the topic.

There is a 2 X 2 X 2 Commitment to our Alpha series:

  • 2-hour sessions (Noon to 2:00 pm; begins with lunch)
  • 2 Sundays a month (September – April) (note: we meet only once in November & December)
  • 2 towns: sessions alternate between Iowa Falls and Eldora. Consider carpooling!

The high school Confirmation youth will be using the Alpha video series. By offering the adult version of Alpha, we can support our youth and their parents as we all grow in our faith.

Join us for Alpha! We encourage newcomers to join Alpha even though the first session has passed. We have room in all of our small groups! Contact Sr. Connie at for more information.
