    Our youth ministry program needs a volunteer to help coordinate service for our high school teens.

    This year, our Confirmation students will be asked to serve on various committees, in liturgical ministries, and around the parish. Serving in these areas will show our teens that they have a place in this community and have unique insights and talents to offer our parish. We know this will be a meaningful experience for our teens, but we need help organizing it!

    We need a volunteer (or 2) to help connect teens to various parish groups and track their progress. If you are detail-oriented, comfortable with email and spreadsheets, and have a love for our parish and teens, EMAIL Sarah for more info.

    Reverend Monsignor Alex Bobby Benson is a Priest of the Koforidua Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church and Founder and Director of Matthew 25 House in Koforidue, Ghana.

    He will be here next weekend at all Masses, August 25 & 26, speaking about the center, which he founded over 18 years ago. The facility educates, provides medical screenings, supplements, counseling, and meals, as well as spiritual, emotional and financial support to people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV) as well as Orphans and other Vulnerable Children (OVC).

    The Center was founded as a way to reckon with the stigma which faces marginalized in the country and to fulfill the words in Matthew 25:35-40 of the New testament... “For I was hungry you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, in prison, you visited me, what you do to the least ones you did it for me.”

    In his words “One of the saddest things that can befall any human being is to be neglected and ostracized by either family members or society or both as a result of sickness or mishap.”

    Since the Center’s beginning, its occupancy has grown from only nine PLHIV to over 90 and is still increasing. The over 95 Orphans and Vulnerable Children receive educational support, with fees, stationery, transportation and clothing provided by the House.

    He is now constructing a 24-Bed Hospice at Osabene-Koforidua Eastern Region of Ghana, which is now at roofing level.

  • Attention Hikers, Long-distance Walkers, In-shape Disciples, and All Who Pray Christ King Holy Hill Pilgrimage [ ... ]

    Attention

    Hikers, Long-distance Walkers, In-shape Disciples, and All Who Pray

    Christ King Holy Hill Pilgrimage

    The call to a Catholic pilgrimage is a personal invitation from God to leave 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.

    On Friday, September 7, Christ King Parish is 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.

    Parishioners are invited to participate in this special pilgrimage in two ways:

    1. Pilgrims capable and called are encouraged to walk the pilgrimage to Holy Hill.
    2. Christ King 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 both entrances to Christ King Church August 18 through September 5, ONLINE, or at the parish office.

    All interested are asked to contact Josh Mount for more information:  EMAIL or 414-218-2053

    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.
