We are blessed to have four people in our community who desire to be baptized and enter the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) program has been meeting for over two months now, and I feel blessed to be leading the team of catechists and sponsors for them. Daniel, Janet, Nelson and Shirley have all voiced their desire to become Catholic Christians and receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion) next Easter, and are presently entering the Catechumenate—that is, becoming formal and public petitioners to enter the Church.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters who have been moved by the Holy Spirit and encouraged by the example of Catholic friends, family members and colleagues, as they continue to learn about prayer, the liturgy and the Mass, and many tidbits of scripture, theology, and Catholic culture and tradition.

They will be participating in the Rite of Dismissal during the 10:30am Sunday Masses from now until Easter. After the readings and the homily, they will exit the nave of the church and go to study and discuss the readings and homily they have just listened to. As the rest of us continue to pray and participate in the Liturgy of the Eucharist, they prepare for the day when they will be able to join us around the table of the altar and share Christ’s Body and Blood with us.

Their faith and commitment to becoming Catholic is an inspiration and encouragement for our faith, whether we are converts or cradle Catholic ourselves, and our examples of living out the faith, in good times and especially through challenges, is an inspiration for and gives hope and reassurance to them.  Let […]

Catholic Campaign for Human Development

By |November 10th, 2012|

46.2 million Americans lived at or below the poverty line in 2010, an increase of over 2 million since 2009.  With many families living one paycheck away from financial instability, there is little hope that more Americans won’t face poverty in the years to come.

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) funds programs in communities across the United States where people living in poverty join together to identify problems, make decisions, and find ways to improve their lives and neighborhoods.

Your support helps end poverty one community at a time.  Please visit www.usccb.org/cchd to read more about CCHD’s efforts to spread Christ’s love by helping to break the cycle of poverty in your community and across the country.

The collection date for Catholic Campaign for Human Development is November 18th.  Envelopes for the collection are in your monthly contribution packet.

Religious Education Living Rosary

By |October 18th, 2012|

During the month of October, the Catholic Church gives special attention to Life Issues and Mary, with the Feast of the Holy Rosary celebrated on October 7.   This past weekend, October 14, we celebrated by doing a “Living Rosary” where all children and adults from our Religious Education program said the entire Rosary together, focusing on the Glorious Mysteries:  the Resurrection, Ascension, Descent of the Holy Spirit, Assumption and Coronation.  A large rosary, made from colored paper plates and twine, was placed in the middle of the gym.  It represented the Rosary beads and the respective prayers that are prayed with each bead.  Students stood behind each rosary “bead” and led a Hail Mary.  A beautiful statue of the Blessed Mother was our focus in the middle of the circle.  Students colored pictures of Mary and they were displayed.  The students were very reverent throughout the entire, prayerful event.

Women’s Care Center

By |September 25th, 2012|

Are you interested in learning more about ways to
get involved with the Women’s Care Center?
By now most of us have noticed the beautiful relationship that has grown and developed between the Women’s Care Center and Christ the King Parish.  From our diaper drive in the fall, Giving Tree gifts and school Advent donations during the Christmas season, to the crib club drive in the Spring, the generosity of Christ the King Parish has become a model after which other local parishes aspire to emulate.  Christ the King is so pleased that our dedication to their cause and support of their patrons continues to generate more and more interest from our parishioners.  If you, like so many others, are curious to know of other ways you can help the Women’s Care Center, please consider some of the following upcoming volunteer experiences;

1)      The Chapin Street location will soon be opening up a Crib Club!  The Crib Club will be needing volunteers on Thursdays from 10:00 – 2:00 and Fridays from 11:30 – 1:00.  They will also be holding a parenting class on Mondays at 1:00 and would like the crib club to be open as well.

2)       The Chapin Street location, or any location for that matter, is always in need of new or gently used children’s books, gently used children’s clothing, adult toiletries, cleaning supplies, and of course diapers/baby toiletries/bottles & dishes/etc..

3)      The Women’s Care Center has started a ‘Strong Fathers Program’ that is currently meeting at their Notre Dame Avenue location.  It is an opportunity for men of our parish to get involved with the center and to help support and encourage fathers who might need some help from role models.

There are many other ways to […]
