Members of the DCHS and St. Joseph Academy community gathered for All Saints and All Souls days and were joined by Bishop Joensen who dedicated and blessed the Maroon Memorial, a sacred place on campus to pray and remember the departed. Thank you to those who helped make this place of remembrance possible:

The Schwager family in memory of Trevor Schwager ‘18
The Kirke family in memory of Gary Kirke ‘90
The estate of Sean Barrettsmith ‘61
Colleagues of Bishop Maurice J. Dingman in recognition of his service to the Des Moines Diocese (1968-1986)
