Congratulations to the forty-nine young men and women who graduated from Christ the King School Wednesday, May 23! We share their parents’ pride in them and as a parish community we prayerfully wish them the very best as they begin a new and important chapter in their lives. May God bless the CKS Class of 2018!
Our parish school is one of the great strengths of Christ the King Parish. It not only offers a first-rate academic education to its students, but serves as an important means of religious education and youth ministry as well. When people ask me what makes Catholic schools special, I always respond by saying that Catholic schools offer both education and formation. The formation is formation in the ways of the Gospel. We can all be proud of our parish school and proud to support this important ministry of our parish.
As a parish community we thank our principal, Mr. Ed Seib, our assistant-principal, Mrs. Kortney Wenclewicz, and all of the teachers and staff of CKS for their tireless dedication to the ministry of Catholic education and we wish them and the students a great summer break.
If you know of someone who is interested in knowing more about CKS, please encourage them to call the school at (317) 257-9366. Information and tours are available. We are already looking forward to a great 2018-19 School Year!
We also congratulate all of our parish sons and daughters who are graduating from area high schools this year. This weekend seniors are being recognized at the Saturday 5:00 p.m. Mass. A special blessing prayer will be offered for them as they embark on a new chapter in their lives. Congratulations and best wishes, graduates!
This weekend we are also happy to welcome a missionary from the Divine Word Missionaries to Christ the King. During the summer months each parish of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis hosts two missionary groups. The Mission Appeals offer us the opportunity to learn more about the world-wide mission of the Church and the opportunity to support this work through our financial contributions.
See you at Mass!
