Senior Celebration


It is open to our senior students at Drake University, Grandview University, and DMACC, that are graduating in May or the following December.


This usually takes place on a Sunday a week or so before graduation.

How it works:

At the end of every year, St. Kates hosts a brunch  for all of our graduating senior students. This is the time where we celebrate their accomplishment of graduation and also encourage them to move forward into a new parish as an adult. We have guest speakers come in and speak about their experience and transition from Parish life as a student, to Parish life as an adult.


It usually takes place at the Beautiful Holiday Inn in downtown Des Moines although the venue may change from  year to year.
