We graciously welcome you to St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Parish and Student Center!
We are open for in-person Masses. Masks are required.

Parish Ministry

Our Parish offers many different opportunities for returning our gifts of time and talent to God. As stewards of God-given skills and abilities, volunteering in a ministry or organization provides a way to thank God, share our faith with others, and enhance our community.

Campus Ministry

The core mission of Saint Catherine of Siena Catholic Church and Student Center (Drake's  Newman Community) is to serve college and university students and young adults within the Des Moines area. Our Center serves as a place of worship, prayer, study and service.

Deaf Ministry

St. Catherine's is the home of the Catholic Deaf Community and is the only Church in the state of Iowa that has Sign Language interpreters at every Sunday Morning Mass.  Sign Language available at our Sunday Mass at 10:30 am.


Welcome to Saint Catherine of Siena Catholic Parish and Student Center! We are a small parish with many missions. We delight in the diversity of the ages we represent and the significant missions entrusted to us.

We invite you to join us in prayer and worship, fellowship, and service to others. There is a place for you here.
