Liturgical Ministries

"Blow the trumpet in Zion; sanctify a fast; call a solemn assembly; gather the people." -- Joel 2: 15
 
Liturgy is "the source and the summit" of our lives as Christians.  It is a means to encounter God’s Divine Presence.  While our priests lead the liturgy, many members of our community serve as liturgical ministers, collaborating before and during the Mass to create meaningful environment of worship for all.  We carefully prepare Masses that encourage “full, conscious and active participation.” We also understand that some are more introspective, and we encourage participation in a way that is most meaningful and most comfortable for each individual.
 
Many who gather to worship with us allow themselves to be formed by it ... and go forth from it as a visible sign of the loving presence of God, not only to the people of our community, but for all the world. Liturgy is not simply a human creation. While it relies on human words and human actions--and objects made by human hands-- it was given to us by the Lord through the tradition of the church.
 
By virtue of baptism, each of us is called to minister to the needs of one another. We rely heavily on the dedication of hundreds of men, women, teens, and children who participate in liturgical ministries available at Christ King Parish including:

    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.
