  • Concerns about Sharing the Communion Cup During Cold and Flu Season

    The topic of hygiene and drinking from the common cup has been the subject of religious debate and scientific investigation for the past one hundred years. To date, the transmission of a dis- ease has never been traced to the shared communion cup among any religious denomination that has this practice. A recent CDC study of a significant sampling of daily Mass attendees has shown that they are no more likely to contract a cold or the flu than the population as a whole.

    Although it is not possible to state that infection will never take place through the practice of sharing the cup at communion, most scientists agree that it is highly unlikely. It is wise, however, for individuals to be aware of the condition of their general health and to judge whether even the slightest risk might put them in danger.

    As an act of charity towards other members of the communi- ty, individuals with colds, cold sores or any illness that might be contagious should receive the body and blood of Christ under the form of bread alone and refrain from shaking hands with fellow parishioners during these time of illness.

    First Sunday of Lent. February 18 from 9:15-10:15 a.m. at Christ King

    • Dr. Daniel Scholz (Cardinal Stritch University) Prophets in ancient Israel: God’s Agents for Social Change

    Second Sunday of Lent. February 25 from 9:15-10:15 a.m. at Christ King

    • Steve Blaha (Marquette University) Hope for the Beloved Community: An Ignatian Approach to Racial Reconciliation. Lent offers us an opportunity to reflect upon our walk with the Lord Jesus and his invitation to give witness to the kingdom. We regularly experience brokenness in our communities due to racism/racial advantage. Ignatian (Jesuit) spirituality offers practical ways to live in God's love and thereby bring racial healing to our homes, neighborhoods, and cities.

    Third Sunday of Lent. March 4 from 9:15-10:15 a.m. at Christ King

    • Mr. Al McCauley (Pius XI Catholic High School) Living the Little Way. Her life was brief and seemingly obscure, yet St. Therese of Lisieux is venerated around the world today as one of the most beloved of all Catholic saints. This great devotion likely stems from her accessible spiritual path to holiness known as "The Little Way." Lent is an ideal time to reflect on this simple model of living justly, and to heed the timeless wisdom of this humble Doctor of the Church.

    Fourth Sunday of Lent. March 11 from 9:15-10:15 at Christ King

    • Mr. Daniel Williams (Saint Francis de Sales Seminary) The Common Good and Communion.

    Fifth Sunday of Lent. March 18 from 9:15-10:15 at Christ King

    • Rev. Marty Pable, OFM Cap. Blessed Solanus Casey: Disciple to the Troubled. Fr. Solanus Casey, declared “Blessed” by Pope Francis in November, 2017, is from Milwaukee and studied at Saint Francis Minor Seminary before joining the Capuchin Order. Blessed Solanus had a special gift of healing and compassion to those in troubled situations. Fr. Marty Pable, a roommate of Blessed Solanus, will share his life and spirituality as a model of social action for us as disciples today.

    Wine Pull
     
    One of the features of the evening is a fun Wine Pull, which is essentially a “wine raffle”. We are looking for 95 bottles of good wine, valued at $15 or more, and 5 bottles of really good wine. Guests at the Auction will pay $20, draw a cork from a basket, and that will determine which bottle they get. If you are willing to donate a bottle, or several bottles, you will receive a receipt for your tax deduction. Wine may be dropped off at the rectory or at our home (9404 Beverly Pl, Tosa) any time before February 4. If you have any questions, send me an EMAIL.
     
    Thank you for considering!
    Ann & Dan Baker

    Aluminium Pull Tabs Collection! An On-Going Outreach! 

    Little things mean a lot… Saving pull tabs is easy! They’re compact with a high concentration of recyclable aluminum. Since 2000, recycling little aluminum tabs from the tops of cans have generated nearly $270,000 for the Wauwatosa’s Ronald McDonald House. Revenue from recycling these little bits of aluminum helps provide a “home away from home” for families whose seriously ill children are undergoing medical treatment in the Milwaukee area.  

    Here’s how you can help… 

    Collect pull tabs from aluminium cans, such as from cans of soda, all year round. When you have a bunch, bring them to the Christ King Rectory or School Office whenever you want. Spread the word to your family, friends, classmates and co-workers and bring theirs in as well! 

    To learn more aboat the Ronald McDonald House please go to rmhcmilwaukee.org 

    It’s an easy and simple way to support the Ronald McDonald House and help these families, especially during a very difficult time for them and their child! 

    Thanks you!

    The Martha and Mathews are a group that meet to do light cleaning and polishing in the Church once a month. The brass needs polishing, the kneeler pads need replacing, mopping of certain areas and making sure the pews are clean and respectable are just some of the duties.
     
    Do you have an hour or two to help keep our church looking so beautiful? Maybe you would want to form a small group and work together.
     
    The parishioners that have been doing this are in their 80’s and 90’s. They could use some help! If you can find the time please give Adam Hartung a call and he can give you the details 262-252-8073.

    Several years ago I asked the parish to commit to a multi-year project to include connected WIFI coverage across the entire campus. We have completed the last stage now in improved coverage in the parish center and the church itself. Once you save the information, you can walk from one end of the building to the other and stay connected to the same system. I encourage the healthy use of electronics, even in church, when they are used to help pray, to read the readings ahead of time, or to communicate with those who ought be with you at Mass. 

    If you want to use our WIFI network, connect to “GUESTS” and use the password: “ckguest06”. Thanks, as always, to your dollars in the collection basket that help us improve what we can offer as a parish.
