St. Anthony Catholic Church


Our Mission Statement
The purpose our Society is to cultivate and promote a greater devotion to Our Lord in the Most Blessed
Sacrament of the Altar through Our Lady as Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, as well as to secure the
adornment of the Sanctuary. In addition, we work with other organizations to help promote various parish
activities, and as a group, are members of the Diocesan Council of Catholic Women of Des Moines.

Our monthly meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month with the exception of June, July and August. We begin our meetings at 6:00pm with recitation of the Rosary, located in the main church, followed by our regular business from 6:30pm – 8:00pm in the lower church.

Women who are 18, members of our parish and are in good standing with the Catholic faith may become a member of our Society. Each member is asked to pay a yearly due of $5.00. Women may join our organization any time during the year.

If you would like to learn more about our Society, or how to become a member, please contact our
