IOWA CITY - The congregation at St. Patrick's Church is still a couple of weeks away from knowing what the future holds for their tornado-ravaged church.

Parishioners are waiting for insurance agents to decide if the church is structurally sound. Then the Davenport bishop has to rule on the future of the building, which could take a couple more weeks.

The congregation has actually added parishioners since the tornado.
