If you are reading this letter, you are reading it thanks to the generosity of the businesses and individuals who advertise in our parish bulletin. The bulletin is one of the principal ways in which we communicate parish news fifty-two times a year. The bulletin is provided through Liturgical Publications at no cost to the parish thanks to the generosity of our advertisers.
Maureen Geis of Liturgical Publications is currently renewing and soliciting advertisers for our parish bulletin. If you would like to advertise a business or service in the bulletin, please call the parish office. We are grateful to all those who extend this kindness to our parish and encourage parishioners to utilize the services and businesses of those who advertise in the parish bulletin.

This week we welcome the students and teachers of Christ the King back to school for a new school year. We pray for the students and staff of Christ the King and all of the schools in which our parish children and youth study. May God bless all schools with a safe and productive school year.
Registration for our Religious Education Classes for parish sons and daughters studying in our public schools is now underway. Classes will begin Thursday, September 14. Registration forms are available on Christ the King’s website or by contacting Cindy Flaten at the parish office. I encourage parents to register early and often! September 14th will be here before we know it.
Christ the King Catholic School and our Parish Religious Education Program are two important ways that the parish helps parents fulfill the sacred obligation that they assumed as baptism to raise their children in the ways of faith. May all Christ the King families take advantage of one or the other of these opportunities.
With each passing week that I am at Christ the King I grow in my appreciation of the many, many people who make things work so smoothly in our parish. Most of these people go about their service peacefully and quietly. I would like to express the appreciation of the parish to all the folks who care for the altar linens used at Mass. Every time I open the cabinet containing the purificators and corporals used at the altar, I find a fresh supply, laundered, ironed and folded, and ready for Mass. It is as if angels make sure that there is always a fresh supply of altar linens! Thank you to all of these ‘angels’!
See you at Mass!
