Who is Fr. Riccardo?

I would like to invite you to attend “An Evening with Fr. Riccardo” on Dec. 7th at 7:00pm at the Iowa Events Center. It is at this event that we will show the premiere of the 5 min. short movie, “Veil Removed.” After 5 years in the making, the premiere is here! Come and reignite your love for the Mass by deepening your understanding and love for God’s greatest gift to mankind, the Holy Mass/Eucharist!

We are so fortunate to show the premiere with Fr. Riccardo. Fr. Riccardo’s radio show is heard on Iowa Catholic Radio. It has been their number one rated show for 13 straight years. He is a gifted speaker and has an uncanny knack of explaining the faith in an interesting and understandable way. We truly are blessed that he accepted the invitation to come to Des Moines and that Iowa Catholic Radio and Ut Fidem are sponsoring this event.

Use the link below for Iowa Catholic Radio to get tickets. We hope to see you there! 1,700 tickets have been sold, capacity for 3,000. Pass it on, let’s fill the Center!
