An important part of Sunday Mass that we cannot replicate while you are watching from home is the collection.  Our offering to God remains vitally important, however!  It is part of our response in gratitude to God and it keeps the work of the parish going.  Please continue to contribute!  Online giving is easy and secure. 

 


Emergency Wildfire Relief:  People in the parishes near Chelan (St. Anne in Bridgeport and St. Mary in Mansfield) have been hard hit by the recent fires.  Fr. Rogelio Gutierrez, pastor of St. Francis de Sales in Chelan and of the nearby parishes, has asked if we can help them financially in this crisis.  If you feel moved to donate, you can send a check to

St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church
P.O. Box 1089
Chelan, WA 98816

Other ways to contribute include an online donation to Christ the King (click the Wildfire Relief Fund on the online giving site), a donation to Catholic Charities (contact Becki Lambert at blambert@catholiccharitiescw.org), or a donation to the diocesan fund: 

Wildfire Relief Fund
Diocese of Yakima
PO Box 2189
Yakima, WA  98907

Prayers are welcome, too.

 

Be Christ’s Light for Others:  this weekend, we are asking if you can donate to a diocesan collection for COVID-19 relief for our central Washington parishes.  The Bishop also asks for your prayers for our parish and the 39 other parishes in the Yakima diocese.   Envelopes can be found at the entrances to the church and the outdoor Mass site.  If you can’t make it to church, here’s the address for donations:  Diocese of Yakima, 5301-E Tieton Drive, Suite A, Yakima, WA 98908. 

 

UPDATED NEWS

September 16, 2020

To accommodate changes in the weather, and to allow more people to attend Mass, we’re adjusting our Mass schedule on Sundays.
Here's our new 'live' Mass schedule:

Saturdays 5:00 p.m. indoors

Saturdays 6:00 p.m. outdoors

Saturdays 7:30 p.m. in Vietnamese, every other Saturday, outdoors

Sundays:  8:00 am. indoors

Sundays:  9:00 a.m. outdoors

Live outdoor Masses are held in the upper parking lot on Stevens Drive.  Attendance is limited to 200 people per outdoor Mass; attendance indoors is limited to 50.  Those who attend MUST wear a mask the whole time and maintain a distance of 6 feet from others.  For outdoors Masses, bring your own chair and whatever you need to keep cool or warm ;).  

You must register to attend these Masses, each time.  Here’s the link to sign up:  

https://www.eventbrite.com/o/christ-the-king-parish-30417877024

While seating will be physically distant, and we won’t be singing* or shaking hands, attendance may pose a serious health risk.  It’s perfectly fine to continue to watch our livestream Masses.  Please continue to pray for a remission of this pandemic.  And do your part to minimize its spread.  God bless you!

You can read a letter from Msgr. Champoux with guidance about attendance protocol here

Confessions!  Saturdays, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in our school cafeteria.  To keep everyone safe, here’s how it will work:

  • Park in one of 10 numbered parking spots in the lower parking lot on Stevens Drive.  If the spots are full, wait until one is available.
  • Wait in your car for an usher to indicate your turn.  If you have more than one person in your vehicle, one occupant at a time will proceed to the cafeteria and the others will wait in the car.  No more than 8 per car.
  • Wear your mask at all times once you exit your car.
  • Maintain a distance of 6 feet from others.
  • Sign in before you enter the cafeteria; registration is for your own protection/contact tracing and the list will be shredded after 14 days. 
  • Be mindful of the time spent in confession so all can be heard.
  • Use the hand sanitizer we’ll have available.

You can always call the parish office (946-1675) and make an appointment for confession

 

We are continuing to livestream Mass on weekdays, a Holy Hour (Exposition, Adoration, and Benediction) on Fridays, and Sunday Masses in English and Spanish.

  • Weekday Mass:  Monday through Friday at 8:00 a.m.
  • Holy Hour:  Friday, only, at 6:30 p.m. 
  • Sunday Mass:  recorded during the Saturday Vigil (Spanish at 4:00 p.m., English at 5:00 p.m.).

Spiritual Communion:  we encourage making a spiritual communion since we rarely receive the Eucharist during this time; the priests lead us though this prayer during the online Masses:

My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.

 

Welcome

We, the Christ the King Parish community, are the Body of Christ called to gather for worship, cherish the traditions of our faith, witness the Gospel, minister to others, and be Christians in the world.
