For most of my life I have been a parishioner at Christ the King Parish. I attended Sunday School (CCD) here at Christ the King, received my First Communion and Confirmation here. I was involved in the Youth Ministry Program (The New Creation), and almost 35 years ago, was married to my wonderful husband in this place that I call home. For over 25 years, I have been involved with the Religious Education Program as a catechist and Coordinator, a ministry that is very close to my heart.
Today at the 8:45am Mass, we joyfully commission ten parishioners as catechists in the Religious Education Program. These wonderful people have dedicated themselves to spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to the students in our parish that attend public schools and are home schooled. All of our Catechists have been involved in the Religious Education Program for over 5 years, and we have two catechists that have been involved in the program for more than 30 years! Five of our Catechists have graduated from the diocesan two year Education for Ministry Program.
Our Catechists are entrusted with the important role of formally presenting the story of faith to our young people in a way that enables them to see and experience faith as a “living reality.” They teach the doctrines and practices, while exploring the four pillars of the Catholic faith: Creed, Sacraments, Morality and Prayer on an age appropriate level.
We have many opportunities for prayer on Sunday mornings including a Living Rosary and Stations of the Cross. We also encourage service and stewardship through support of our food pantry and the Women’s Care Center.
