    • CTK March For Life in Washington DC
      This coming January 21st, Christ the King school will be sending 22 8th grade students to the March for Life in Washington D.C. The total cost of the trip is $325, but our goal is to lower the cost to $150 per student, so we will need to raise about $3,000 by December 15th. No size donation is too small! Please make your checks out to Christ the King parish and indicate on the memo line that they are for the March for Life trip, or use one of the March for Life envelopes provided at the entrances to the Church. For cash donations, please use the envelopes. You can drop the envelopes in the collection basket, or take them to the parish office. Thank you for your generosity!!
      Questions? Call Claudia 836-0517.

    • Newly Confirmed
      The Confirmation of 56 of our eighth graders by Bishop Paprocki a week
      ago still brings a smile to me. What a Spirit-filled evening with amazing music!
      The bishop sang part of his homily, and the song after communion had us in
      rhythmic clapping. My time with the parents and students in the days and weeks
      beforehand was a grace. What a nice gathering in Roesch Hall afterwards for a
      classy reception and pictures with the bishop. Going off the bishop’s homily, the
      gifts of the Holy Spirit will help our young people give witness that God is alive
      in our midst. The Church (and I) have great hope in these newly confirmed!
