  • Middle School Students Interested in Becoming an Altar Server - Training Information
    Last week, our middle school students in both our day school and Faith Formation program received an information packet [ ... ]

    Last week, our middle school students in both our day school and Faith Formation program received an information packet on how to become an altar server here at Christ King. We’re excited about offering this service opportunity once again. Talk to your student and find out if there is an interest and desire to serve the parish in this very special and rewarding manner.

    Over the past few years, we have found offering two focused and intense sessions in the fall provides us the ability to ease our students into the server rotations within a few weeks after completion. Each session is in a small group setting (6 students per session maximum). We offer four different day and time options for both the First and Second Sessions to allow for flexibilty around your family’s schedule. We ask that your student make a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice for each of the two sessions.

    Check your student’s backpack or take-home folders for the packet, or find it on the website. Forms should be completed and turned in to the parish office before October 16.

    Our first date and time option for the First Session is coming up this Wednesday, October 18th from 2-3:10pm.

    Please call Maggie Pernice at (414)258-2604 ex. 22 with any questions.

    Our 8th graders will be volunteering to rake leave of parishioners or family members in the area later this month. Our 8th grade class has been working on leadership skills and the idea of service to others in the community. This is a great way for our 8th graders to do service for members of the Christ King family.

    If you, a neighbor or a family member in the area are in need of having your yard raked when all the leaves finally come down, contact the school office at (414) 258-4160 or email Mr. Brown at . I am hoping to have at least 20 yards to rake later this month.

    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.
