Safe Environment - (Virtus Training)
Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart takes the safety of our youth very seriously. We participate in the Des Moines Diocese Safe Environment – Protecting God’s Children program. All our catechists, staff members, and volunteers who work closely with children are required to comply with this training.

Spiritual Mentors Needed
for Upcoming 2018-2019 Year!
As we look forward to ongoing and expanding opportunities in Youth Ministry at OLIH, we are in need of adults, 21 years of age or older to be spiritual mentors who will companion our youth throughout the year. A mentor is, “an experienced and trusted adviser.” We need adults who are willing to share their time, their story, and most importantly their presence. To “companion” our youth as a mentor means accompanying youth during our events, prayer experiences, and supporting our youth in their activities at Church (usually Wednesday evenings and some weekends) and to some degree, in their lives outside of church. Anyone interested in learning more about this needed ministry should contact Randy Henderson, to set up a meeting.
