St. Luke's at the Catholic Circle of Faith House
The Catholic Circle of Faith is wrapping up its work on a Habitat for Humanity House. The keys (and the mortgage) will be turned over to a hard working family that spent 19 years in a refugee camp before immigrating to the US. All are invited to the dedication ceremony on Dec 2nd at 10am at the house on 1343 McCormick St in Des Moines.
Many thanks to all the parishioners who worked on the house this fall.

Religious Education Enrollment
Registration is now open for Religious Education classes at St. Luke’s. To enroll your students, click here: https://campscui.active.com/orgs/StLuketheEvangelist and complete the registration information. One of the questions you will see asks if you would be willing to be a catechist this year. Please prayerfully consider this opportunity – it takes many great volunteers to make our program a success, and we could definitely use your help at all grade levels, whether or not you have a student in RE. (As an added bonus, enrollment fees are waived for any children of our catechists). Contact Pete Haack at email@example.com if you have any questions, and look forward to a great year!
