Formation and Discipleship
This committee oversees the educational and formation opportunities in the parish, and primarily meets in teams. The children's ministry, youth ministry, and adult formation mission teams take an intentional look at our parish's role in advancing the discipleship and missionary focus of Christ King and Saint Bernard parishes. Each team evaluates how we can help parishioners and the community to seek Christ, connect with the Church and be equipped for mission, so they can be sent out into the world. These three teams meet 4-6x a year to evaluate current program offerings and new needs. For more information contact the Faith Formation office at 414-258-2604. Chairs: Rich Vetrano, EMAIL, 414-559-0547; Tim Garczynski, EMAIL, 414-750-2289
This committee is the face of Christ King's welcoming evangelization. It coordinates new member registration and welcome, weekend fellowships, and other special events throughout the year.

This committee strives to help parishioners live out Jesus' call to be missionary disciples as an extension of God's love, compassion and mercy to neighbors near and far, and to help the parishes become informed and participatory in the Catholic Church's social justice teachings and initiatives. This is accomplished through direct service, education, prayer, and financial support. This is a combined outreach effort with the Saint Bernard Parish Human Concerns Committee.

The purpose of this committee, which serves as a sub-committee of the Formation & Discipleship Committee, is to examine and evaluate the educational offerings of the parish school to generate policies consistent with a high-quality Catholic education and the goals of Christ King Parish.

Interested members will be selected through an in-person discernment process in the spring. Those who are interested must be at least 18 years old, be active in the parish and sacramental life of the Church, especially the Sunday Euchaarist, have a positive and collaborative attitude, and be supportive of the goals and mission of the parish and the ministry of the parish school.
