    In an attempt to try to be more inclusive of those who are afflicted with Celiac Spruce disease or some form of gluten intolerance, low-gluten hosts are available at the Sunday Masses. These hosts are not gluten- free, though the level is extremely low (less than twenty parts per million [<20 ppm]) and are therefore in strict adherence to Canon Law.

    If you are intolerant of gluten and would like to receive one of these hosts, the priest will have them available in his ciborium. Get into his line at the Communion procession and indicate this fact when you receive. The hosts are placed in a special container to help minimize cross contamination.

  • Evening Advent Vespers | Weds. Dec 5, 12 & 19 | 5:30 - 6:00 PM

    Vespers, also called Evening Prayer, is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church fulfills Jesus’ command to “pray always” (Luke 18:1). Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world.

    The Liturgy of the Hours includes several specified times of prayer. The most important times, called the “hinge hours,” are Morning Prayer (which takes place upon rising) and Evening Prayer (which takes place as dusk begins to fall).

    Bishops, priests, deacons, and many men and women in consecrated life pray the Liturgy of the Hours each day. Their work is organized around this prayer, keeping God always at the center of their days. Lay people are encouraged to pray the Liturgy of the Hours as well, especially Morning and Evening Prayer.

    Evening Prayer gives thanks for the day just past and makes an evening sacrifice of praise to God.

    At Christmas Masses this year we will continue a beautiful tradition of offering a Christmas gift to all who attend. We will be handing out Matthew Kelly’s book “The Biggest Lie in the History of Christianity - How Modern Culture is Robbing Billions of People of Happiness”. We offer this gift as a thank you to our parishioners and visitors who come to Christmas Mass, and to provide easily digestible materials to help evangelize through the beauty of the Church.

    This gift takes some effort. We ask you to consider a few dollars as a donation to help us evangelize in this way. Give a donation to the parish and indicate “Book giveaway” in the memo line so that we may allocate your donation properly.

    The VA Hospital could use those calendars to help the Vets remember their appointments. Please send any unwanted 2019 calendars to school or the Parish Office. These calendars will then be delivered to the VA Hospital.

    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!

    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.
