THE 175th ANNIVERSARY
OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN FORT MADISON, IOWA - DVD

Before Fort Madison was transformed from a crude river town on the western frontier and before Iowa became a state, John George Alleman, a poor Dominican Friar, arrived to spread the gospel of Christ. Appointed by Bishop Mathias Loras, the first Catholic Bishop of Iowa, Father Alleman, planted the seeds for the growth of what would become three unique Catholic parishes in the city and many others throughout the diocese. Alleman's personal sacrifices and enormous energy overcame the rigors of frontier life and paved the way for thousands of immigrants to settle and raise their families in the new territory. Those early parishioners dealt with significant financial and cultural challenges, discrimination, and major historical events as they helped build the legacy of the Dubuque Diocese.

This brief historical narrative is more than a souvenir celebration of the 175 years since Father Alleman's arrival in the Iowa Territory. A bonus video (Sacred Art; A Bridge to Scripture and Faith) is also included. Skillfully written and eloquently narrated, it reverently reflects the history, symbolism, and a personal family collection of more than forty beautiful stained glass windows of the churches. Together, these two short videos represent the contributions of many volunteers and are certain to be a valuable gift for future generations
