“Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God” (St. John Damascene).

At Christ the King we understand the extreme importance of fostering a deep and personal relationship with God through individual and communal prayer.  In order to become true disciples of Christ we must first know Christ.  We also acknowledge the centrality of prayer in everything we do as a community.  Our intellectual learning, service, and fellowship must be rooted in a life of prayer.

We offer many opportunities for prayer outside our daily Masses, and encourage all our parishioners to find time each day to lift their hearts to God.

Eucharistic Adoration

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is an opportunity for all parishioners to spend time in the presence of our Lord, dwelling in God’s love, praying for the needs of family, friends, our parish community, and the entire People of God.

Adoration is available every Friday at Christ the King (first Friday of the month in the main church from 9am-4:30pm and every other Friday in the Holy Cross Chapel from 9am-4:30pm).

Regular Adorers commit to praying in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament for one hour either weekly, bi-monhtly or monthly. Schedules are created to ensure that there are at least two parishioners scheduled for each time slot. If you would like to commit to a half hour or hour time slot, please contact Megan Urbaniak.

Regular prayer warriors join a long standing, extensive prayer chain network within our parish through phone calls or email. If you would like to volunteer or add a name to our prayer list, please contact the rectory offices.
Parishioners meet in the Holy Cross Chapel every Monday at 7:30pm to pray the rosary together. This rosary is offered especially to remember the sanctity of human life.
Parishioners volunteer to take a special chalice home for one week to pray for an increase of all vocations within the Church. We ask that all parishioners pray that all may hear the gentle whisper of God and the urging of the Spirit as we discern how God has created us to serve and love whether that be in religious life, the priesthood, marriage, or the single vocation.  Please contact the parish office (272-3113) if you would like to volunteer for this ministry.
