St. Vincent de Paul dedicated his life to serving the poor and needy people of his time. Let us imitate his goodness by sharing our clothes and bedding with those in need this season. Holy Spirit guide our hearts and our hands as we choose what to share.
Our spring clothing drive to help those in need in our community is scheduled for Saturday, May 4 from 10:00AM - 1:00PM in the South Hall.
We would especially appreciate donations of spring and summer adult clothing and accessories (purses, shoes,belts, etc.) baby and children’s clothing, blankets, linens(sheets, towels, curtains, tablecloths, etc.) kitchen items (pots, pans, bowls, utensils, etc.) and small working appliances.
Please bring only clean, wearable and usable items. If youcan’t get to the drive on the 4th and would like a pick up,please contact Steve Obscherning at 414-773-9146 by April 29th to arrange one. The less fortunate in our greater community truly benefit from this drive, and we thank you for your caring and continued generosity.
Oh good and gracious God, we thank you for all you have given us. We know that we are blessed with more clothes than we really need. Help us to share with those who have very little. As we stand before our closets and look at all we own, open our hearts to the needs of others and help us to generously give to our brothers and sisters in need. We askthis in Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Call: Choirs help communicate the presence of God in our midst. The Second Vatican Council stated emphatically t [ ... ]The Call:
Choirs help communicate the presence of God in our midst. The Second Vatican Council stated emphatically that choirs must be diligently promoted. Choral music inspires the faithful. Masses with a choir seem to have more energy and stronger participation by the assembly.The Challenge:
Most people believe a choir is a valuable ministry but, few have the time to participate regularly. The weekly rehearsal and the weekend Mass seem to be significant time commitments. Our regular members (currently about 20) also have work and family commitments and need to miss a rehearsal or a Mass occasionally.A Possible Solution: ACS (Adult Choir Support) SingersPerhaps there are people in our parish community who have prior choral experience and/or sing with one of the fine choral groups in the greater Milwaukee area, but don’t have the time to commit to our parish adult choir. What if these folks were willing to help the choir out on a Sunday morning? No regular commitment, just an email (SOS) requesting singers for a particular Mass. If you can help great—if your schedule is full, join us next time. The choral score could be emailed with a request for tenors, basses, sopranos or altos (sometimes all of the above depending on the piece of music). My expectation as the choir director would be for singer to learn the music independently and join the choir for warm-up before the scheduled Mass (usually 1/2 hour before Mass time). ACS Singers would also be welcome to attend part of the regular Thursday rehearsal at 6:30 pm before the weekend Mass if it fit into their schedules, though that is not my expectation for this ministry.
I don’t envision sending out a request for every Adult Choir Mass, just those when some of our regular members are missing or the music requires more singers. The reverse of this idea might also work. An ACS Singer could contact me and offer to sing with the choir at a particular Mass. That person would receive the score via email, prepare it independently and join us for the warm-up before Mass. If this sounds like a possibility for you please feel free to contact me with questions or to join the Christ King ACS Singer Ministry.Bill LievenDirector of Liturgical Musiclievenb@christkingparish.org414-258-2604 ext. 27

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 DEVELOPMENTby responding to major emergencies, fighting disease and poverty, and nurturing peaceful and just societies; and,SERVE CATHOLICS IN THE UNITED STATESas 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!

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.
