    Christ King Parish is spiritually energized but physically wearing out!
    • Christ King parishioners have long ensured that Christ King remain a safe and welcoming house of worship, prayer, formation, and service. But after 79 years of faithfully facilitating God’s call to mission, Christ King’s physical plant needs our help!

    • Most physical improvements included in the "Living the Call, Sharing God's Gifts" Capital Appeal are to structures or systems that are over 60 years old.

    • Repair or replacement can no longer be deferred.

    • All parishioners are invited to tour our campus to see the fixes we need to make.

    Tours begin at either Church entrance.

    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.
