    Prayer Warriors Needed!
    This fall we’re launching a brand new youth ministry program and our new Alpha program for adults and teens. Though we are working hard to iron out the details, we know that only God can make our efforts fruitful. That’s where you come in! We’d like to assign a specific prayer warrior for each of our teen and adult small groups this fall. Each warrior will receive a small group of people to pray for throughout the week, but specifically on Sundays during the Alpha sessions. Some may choose to offer a weekly rosary, chaplet, or communion – it’s up to you! There are no meetings, just pray from home.
    EMAIL Sarah Daszczuk or give her a call at or 414-258-2604.
     
    Cooks Needed!
    This fall, our high school students are embarking on a new journey called Alpha. Alpha is a place where people can come to hear, wrestle with, and respond to the Gospel. An integral part of this program is the community meal.
     
    We plan to provide 10 meals to our high school students this fall, and we need lots of help! Here’s what we’re looking for:
    • MEAL COORDINATOR: 3-4 people needed, coordinators will be assigned 2 or 3 dates to be the point person for the meal. These people will plan the meal with Sarah, give instruction to other volunteers, and oversee kitchen.
    • PREP/CLEAN VOLUNTEERS: help prep and serve the food at one, two or all ten of the nights!
    • DONATE FOOD: If you like cooking in the comfort of your own kitchen, we can use your help too! Throughout the semester we’ll ask people to donate cooked sloppy joe, chili, and lasagna. Don’t like cooking? No problem! We also need people to donate salad, bread, and more! Get on our mailing list!

    If you are able to help in any capacity, please contact Sarah Daszczuk, our youth minister, at 414-258-2604 x26 or EMAIL

    Calling hikers, long-distance walkers or runners, active disciples and those who pray!
    Join others on Friday, September 6 for a 28-mile walking pilgrimage to Holy Hill

     

    The call to a Catholic pilgrimage is a personal invitation from God to temporarily set aside day-to-day life and embark on a focused journey to grow closer to God. In the Catholic faith the entirety of one’s life can be considered a pilgrimage with a goal of meeting God in heaven.

    Christ King and St. Bernard Parishes are offering an opportunity for a 28-mile walking pilgrimage to Holy Hill National Shrine of Mary Help of Christians. Departure is scheduled from the Swan Blvd. entrance of Christ King Church at 5:00 am.

    All are invited to participate in two ways:

    1. Pilgrims capable and called are encouraged to walk the pilgrimage to Holy Hill.

    2. Christ King and Saint Bernard’s parishioners are invited to send written prayers with the pilgrims to Holy Hill. All prayers will be carried on the pilgrimage and read at the foot of the Blessed Mother’s altar in the Shrine Chapel at Holy Hill. You may submit prayers at either Church August. 18 – September. 5, ONLINE, or at either Parish Office.

    All interested walking pilgrims are asked to contact Josh Mount for information at: jmount132@gmail.com or 414-218-2053.

    If you are passionate about global justice and feel the call to be in solidarity with the world’s poor, becoming a Christ King CRS Parish Ambassador might just be what you are looking for!
     
    Catholic Relief Services carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. We are motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ to cherish, preserve and uphold the sacredness and dignity of all human life, foster charity and justice, and embody Catholic social and moral teaching as we act to:
     
    PROMOTE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
     
    by responding to major emergencies, fighting disease and poverty, and nurturing peaceful and just societies; and,
     
    SERVE CATHOLICS IN THE UNITED STATES
     
    as they live their faith in solidarity with their brothers and sisters around the world. As part of the universal mission of the Catholic Church, we work with local, national and international Catholic institutions and structures, as well as other organizations, to assist people on the basis of need, not creed, race or nationality.
     
    Catholics across the country are hungering for new ways to live their faith - to encounter and respond to suffering people around the world. These disciples of Christ seek to put into practice the teachings of the Church by breaking through what Pope Francis calls the “globalization of indifference.” And they want to inspire their parish communities to act on our faith by caring for people in need.
     
    For 75 years, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) has been providing expertise and compassion to the very poorest of our brothers and sisters in more than 100 countries.
     
    Christ King CRS Parish Ambassadors are active parishioners with a passion for global solidarity who help strengthen the parish's outreach ministry by organizing three global discipleship activities per year in our parish. There are substantial resources and support from CRS to assist with these efforts.
     
    If you are interested in learning more about this global initiative please contact Luigi and Sue Schmitt 414-778-0405 or EMAIL.

    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.

    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.
