Our Mission Statement...

We, the family of St. Alphonsus Catholic Parish, strengthened by Word and Sacrament, strive to live out Jesus Christ’s call to discipleship by worshiping faithfully, serving willingly, and growing spiritually.

20/21 Annual Diocesan Appeal


Indoor meetings and Faith Formation sessions should be held virtually. In-person meetings may take
place outdoors if safe distances and face protection are maintained. Indoor meetings of less than thirty
minutes may be held if proper distancing and face protection are maintained. If your group would like assistance for a virtual meeting, just contact the church office for help.

Live and Online Mass & protocol to enter church

Live Mass times are as follows: Tuesday through Friday - Noon        Weekends - Saturday, 5:30 p.m. and Sundays 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.            Father Connolly can hear confessions by appointment only. Please call 319-385-8410, if no answer please leave a message and he will call you back. 

We want to make sure everyone can pray and come to Mass while still minimizing risk, so please follow these safety protocols…

  • Anyone entering the building must be symptom-free for the past 3 full days (No cough, no fever, not fatigue, no shortness of breath, no body aches, no loss of smell and/or taste).
  • Anyone entering the building must wear a mask over your mouth and nose. If you do not have a mask, we do have some disposable masks available.

  If you are not able to come to Mass during the week or on the weekend for any reason, you will still be able to view Mass on  YouTube Channel ~ St. Al's MP Livestream or Facebook ~ Saint Alphonsus Mt. Pleasant  Mass is recorded at each daily Mass and on Saturday night at 5:30.
