There’s an awful lot going on at the parish these days, so this week’s bulletin column will be a little bit of a hodgepodge. Here are a few things you should be aware of:
We finally have some definite information to pass onto you about Fr. Mike’s departure from Christ the King. Fr. Mike is scheduled to begin his new assignment as an active-duty Army Chaplain at Fort Benning, Georgia, this November. Therefore, his last day at Christ the King will be Sunday October 25th. Fr. Mike will preside at all of the Masses on the weekend of October 24-25. We won’t be able to have the kind of going-away reception that we usually do, but our Pastoral Team is thinking of some more creative ways to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to say good-bye. Please keep Fr. Mike in your prayers during this time of transition.
We continue to make progress on our building. As I mentioned in an earlier column, we moved into the four 1st-floor classrooms at the end of the August when we started school. This week we’ll be able to move into the 2nd-floor classrooms! That leaves the gym and a few more miscellaneous locations before we have total occupancy. In the meantime, I think everyone agrees that the new rooms are beautiful! I’m so grateful to the contractors who have worked so hard to make this new building a reality in such a challenging environment. I’m also incredibly grateful to our teachers who have been so flexible as we’ve had to move into the new building in stages.
