First Fridays 7pm

"Faith is above all a personal, intimate encounter with Jesus, and to experience His closeness, His friendship, His love; only in this way does one learn to know Him more,

and to love and follow him ever more. 

May this happen to each one of us. "

~Pope Benedict XVI!~

Encounter is a night of Adoration, music, and witness created to give the people of St. Pius and the Des Moines area a way to experience and "encounter" Christ is a new and different way.  Adoration is paired with live music, a speaker, and time for private reflection to give people multiple ways to grow in their relationship with God and truly come to know and love God. 


Encounter will now be on First Fridays starting September 2018
