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.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>If you want to use our WIFI network, connect to &ldquo;GUESTS&rdquo; and use the password: &ldquo;ckguest06&rdquo;.&nbsp;Thanks, as always, to your dollars in the collection basket that help us improve what we can offer as a parish.</strong></p> Share Your Story of Why CK! http://www.christkingparish.org/about/cktestimonials.cfm Tue, 20 Mar 2018 00:00:00 CST SM_86 <p>Do you have a story or reflection (short or long) you&#39;d like to share about how CK (or a person or an event or an experience) has helped to strengthen your faith or deepen your love or increase your involvement?
