Memorial Mass Announcement


The Memorial Mass at Our Lady of the River will be held on Friday, November 6, at 6:00. We will be honoring not only those loved ones that have passed on in the past year, but also all of our loved ones that have gone before us into the arms of Jesus. The Book of the Dead will be available in the front of the church beginning November 1 for you to write the names of all whom you would like us to pray for during the month of November. If you are unable to come to the church, please call the parish office at (563)289-5736 and leave the names of those that you would like added to the Book of the Dead. All of our deceased loved ones will be prayed for.


Update: September 1st, 2020


To improve church outreach during the pandemic, Our Lady of the River Church has installed a low-power FM radio transmitter. With the distancing suggestions, you will now be able to listen to the Mass from the comfort of your car in the church parking lot.


Tune your car radio to FM channel 103.3. You should be able to hear the broadcast from most of the parking lot. If you have a problem, please move to a parking spot closer to the church entrance. The transmitter will be turned on about 15 minutes before Mass and turned off after Mass.


If you do use the radio broadcast service, please contact the church office and let us know how it works for you.



Urgent, please read:

The celebration of Mass at Our lady of the River will resume the weekend of June 27/28, with some restrictions.

  • During Mass everyone must wear face protection.
  • Seating will be limited to every third pew and six feet apart.
  • Distancing should also be maintained while gathering, during the Communion procession, and following Mass.
Those who are at a greater risk of infection due to age and/or health condition should stay home. Throughout this pandemic, all Catholics in the Diocese of Davenport are dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass.
