Note:  Christ the King Church and office are CLOSED to the public
unless you are attending Mass or have called for an appointment. 

We apologize for the inconvenience; this is by order of the Governor and we want you to be safe from illness.
Please, wear a mask, observe distance from others, and stay healthy! 

 

Here is a two-part video message about Ash Wednesday and Lent from Msgr. Champoux: 

 
During Lent, daily Masses (M-F) will be at 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. and noon. (The 8:30 a.m. Mass will be livestreamed.)
 
On Fridays during Lent, we’ll have Adoration in the Sanctuary after the noon Mass, with Benediction at 2:00 p.m.
(If you don’t come to the Mass but would like to pray before the Blessed Sacrament, please come to the church office door and we’ll let you in; the other church doors will be locked for safety.)  This event will be livestreamed.
 
(Stations of the Cross will be on Good Friday only.)
 
A few Lenten devotional booklets are still available: the “Little Black Books,” and “Mending Our Hearts” by Alice Camille and “A New Kind of Hope” by Connie Clark. The booklets are available in the church lobby and outside the parish office entrance.
 
Lenten dietary regulations: Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast and abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday; Catholics age 14 and up are to abstain from meat on all Fridays during Lent.

 

**Continue to pray the Rosary every day**

We are answering the phones during business hours:  please call 509-946-1675 if you need assistance. 
In case of an emergency (in need of a priest) call 509-539-9972.

 

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. 

 

Annual Catholic Appeal:  Thank you for supporting the ACA campaign. So far, pledges are over 95% of our goal; donations above our goal amount are returned to the parish and help US out!  If you can contribute, you’ll find a link on the online giving site (click the icon above).  Bless you for your help!

 

 

 

 


UPDATED NEWS

March 6, 2021

**what's new?  Sunday bulletin, song list**

Here's the regular weekend and daily schedule of 'live' Masses: 

Saturday 4:00 p.m. indoors

Sunday:  8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., noon, and 4:00 p.m. indoors 
Sunday:  11:00 a.m.  outdoors

Weekdays:  6:30 and 8:30 a.m. and noon, indoors.

We'd love to see you at Mass!  We have lots of room to remain suitably far apart, and attendance indoors now allows 135 people (50 for daily Mass).  Those who attend MUST wear a mask the whole time and maintain a distance of 6 feet from others. 

Our outdoor Mass is held in the parking lot on Stevens Drive: the altar is inside the cafeteria but visible. Remain in your vehicle and tune your radio to FM 90.7 or 107.1.  A Eucharistic minister will bring you Communion. 

You must register to attend Masses (daily, Sundays, and Lenten), 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! We offer reconciliation on Saturdays, from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. in our school cafeteria.  To keep everyone safe, here’s how it works:

  • 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

Livestreams are available for the Friday evening Holy Hour and weekday and Sunday Masses in English and Spanish.

  • Weekday Mass:  Monday through Friday at 8:30 a.m.
  • Sunday Mass:  recorded during the Saturday Vigil (Spanish at 3:00 p.m., English at 4:00 p.m.).  
  • Holy Hour:  during Lent, we'll offer 'live' Adoration after the noon Mass, with Benediction at 2 p.m.  If you don't attend the noon Mass but would like to come pray before the Blessed Sacrament, come to the parish office door and we'll let you in.  This event will be livestreamed.

We are still producing a Sunday bulletin.  It's available in several locations on our website, including here, as well as www.parishesonline.com.

 

Christ the King Catholic School 2021 Bridge the Gap Appeal:  our school experienced a revenue shortfall through the cancellations of Sausage Fest 2020 and the 2020 and 2021 Spring Auctions.  We hope you can help us make up for that shortfall by participating in this appeal; your support will help us continue to form virtuous Catholic leaders who are well prepared for the challenges of high school and beyond.  Here's a letter with more information, and a donation slip that includes the online donation link (www.ckschool.net/donate).  We are SO grateful for our generous donors!  God bless you!

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.
