The Ministries Fund of the Diocese of Des Moines

This Endowment was incorporated under the laws of Iowa by the Bishop of the Diocese in 1993, and was originally known as the Bishop’s Endowment.

This fund aids and promotes the spiritual, educational, and charitable aspects, and other interests, of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Des Moines. The goal of this fund is to assist parishes in the Diocese to fund formation processes that help the pastor and staff lean into the audacious goal of Catechesis set by Saint John Paul II: to put people not only in touch, but in communion, in intimacy with Jesus Christ.
