You are invited to our 7th Annual Culture of Life Dinner to honor and promote current and future Pro-Life healthcare providers in Iowa City and surrounding communities through our Pope Paul VI Institute Education Grant!

Attend the Dinner to hear witness stories from six of our grant recipients, and learn how medical professionals inspire a Culture of Life in their communities through the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System (CrMS).

Through the grace of God and our incredible benefactors, we have approved a record of seven fertility care grants this year! In addition, we have approved three Love & Life Grants for those attending the three day "Women's HealthCare Matters Conference".

Our dinner takes place in our St. Wenceslaus parish hall immediately following the 4PM, April 27th, Saturday Mass.  At this dinner and program, we will be honoring 5 Practitioner Interns, 1 Medical Consultant Intern, and 3 Ambassadors of the Pope Paul VI Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System, who will each receive a grant to the Pope Paul VI Institute at this dinner.

We have dedicated our efforts for these grants and this Culture of Life Dinner to Our Lady.  In the last eight years, God has blessed our St. Wenceslaus team with grants to 4 Doctors, 15 Practitioners, 1 Educator, and 5 Ambassadors of the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System!  It is our prayerful intention to spread this good news throughout our entire diocese and state.
