Altar and Rosary Society

Altar and Rosary Society is a church organization open to all women of St. Mary-Holy Cross Parish, committed to being of service to the Church through volunteer and social activities.

If you are a new member of the Parish, you may not be aware of your automatic membership into the Parish organization of the Altar and Rosary Society.  Any member of a community is entitled to the privileges of membership, but is also expected to contribute to the benefit of others, as well.  The primary service performed by the Altar and Rosary Society is to provide food for and serve funeral dinners.  Your kind gesture and generous offerings are greatly appreciated by your grieving friends.

Please contact Lisa Kautza at or 515-964-7687 if you are interested in joining us or if you would like additional information.  

Work of our Hands (WOOH) was created through our Parish Social Concerns Committee at St. Mary-Holy Cross to give parishioners another way to build community and solidarity; to introduce you to artisans, farmers, service-providers, hobbyists, and others in our parish who are willing to provide their services or goods for a fee; and to give those who would provide such services and goods a way of letting others know about it.
