CHURCH ENHANCEMENT MEETINGS

Since last fall a steering committee has been looking seriously at some enhancements and repairs for our church building.

This weekend, Jan 21-22, we will begin a series of brief sessions after the Masses to discuss the need and obtain input from our parish family regarding possible enhancements.

These sessions will be held here in the church immediately after each Mass. Each weekend we will have a brief presentation on a particular aspect of the work we are considering. All are invited to participate.

Adoration Hours

Christ the King Adoration Chapel, located at the southwest corner of 9th and Locust,  provides an opportunity for quiet prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament from 6:00 a.m. Mondays through 5:00  p.m. Fridays.  Our desire is to have two adorers at each Holy Hour.  There are lots of times availabe for you to commit one hour of prayer weekly and the first page of the parish bulletin lists times that we need adorers.  This is a wonderful way to renew your prayer life and build a relationship with Jesus Christ. Please consider giving an hour a week.  For more information, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
