Formation & Discipleship Committee - Christ King Parish Announcements Between The Masses | Three Part Advent Series | Parish Center | 12/3, 10, 17 Fri, 15 Dec 2017 00:00:00 CST SM_351 <p>Join Us Between the Masses | 9:15-10:15AM in the Parish Center | Three Part Advent Series | 12/3, 12/10, 12/17 | A Fresh Perspective on the Season of Advent The Sunday readings for the season of Advent invite us to reflect upon the upcoming birth of Jesus as well as prepare us for the future return of Christ. As the first season of the Church Year, it is a season of hope! How can we manifest this hope into a spirit of stewardship that is so central to how we live-out our Catholic identity? We will explore an answer to this question each week using the Sunday Scripture readings. Daniel Scholz, Ph. D., Dean of the College of Arts &amp; Sciences at Cardinal Stritch University will lead us and together explore the Advent scriptures.

Christ King Parish presents the same invitation to follow Jesus by learning and growing together in faith with a Small Discipleship Group. Small Discipleship Groups are already enhancing the faith lives of those who participate. Read below for Kristin&rsquo;s story and see for yourself!</p> <p>Our parish goal is for each parishioner to find (or create) a small group that offers spiritual inspiration, faith sharing and formation, and social fellowship in a supportive environment that adapts to different faith levels and busy schedules.</p> <p>Small discipleship groups can be formed or joined at anytime! If anyone missed us at our Fall Information and Sign-up sessions, please know we can be found on the parish website at: Because it is important to us that each person finds a group that is a good fit, we ask that you complete the online questionnaire using the web link above.</p> <p>If you have any questions or want more information, <a href="">email Kristin</a>.</p> <hr /> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>My Small Group Expierence...</em></p> <p><em>husband Todd and I facilitate a small group between the masses on Sunday, made up of mostly young families with busy schedules and little free time. We&rsquo;ve been doing this for a couple of years now and every session is such a blessing to us. Childcare is offered in the playroom downstairs and the older kids are often at Religious Education. This offers us the opportunity to actually have uninterrupted conversations, something rare with young children in our lives. We always enjoy the lively and thoughtful conversations we have. We come with our doubts, questions, fear and failures and find comfort and hope in others&rsquo; words and experiences.</em></p> <p><em>love feeling like we have a church family now, something we&rsquo;ve never had before. Mass is filled with familiar faces and we have a sense of community here at Christ King. For Todd and I, as well as our two girls having a group of believers to do life with, see in the community, gather at church together, pray with, etc has been one of the most rewarding outcomes of our group. If our ultimate goal is to be disciples and to make disciples, I don&rsquo;t know of a better way to begin that journey or continue that journey than being in a small group.&rdquo;</em></p> <p><em>Kristin Fischer</em></p> 2017/18 Consultative Bodies Meeting Schedule Fri, 15 Dec 2017 00:00:00 CST SM_240 Release of Information Photography Consent OK Fri, 15 Dec 2017 00:00:00 CST SM_36 <p>Archdiocesan parishes and schools are encouraged to use this Photography Consent Form to obtain permission to use a photograph of an individual for use on a web or social media site or in printed materials.</p>
