Thank you to everyone who participated in last weekend’s Parish-Wide Open House. It was a joy to open all of our parish facilities to parishioners. We are especially proud of the newly updated parish offices and grateful to CTK parishioner Chris Paberzs for overseeing the work. Heartfelt thanks also to our dedicated parish staff for conducting a massive ‘de-cluttering’ of the offices over the past months in preparation for the work that was done this summer. The parish staff was also present after all of the Masses last weekend to greet and direct parishioners during the Open House.
Plans are being finalized for our All Parish Mass and Picnic in Broad Ripple Park on Sunday, September 16. On that Sunday we will gather together as one parish family to celebrate our faith and the bonds of friendship and community that we share. You will not want to miss it as people from all four weekend Masses come together as one parish family. On that weekend the 5:00 p.m. Saturday Mass and the 8:00 a.m. Sunday Mass will be celebrated at the church for those who absolutely cannot join us for the All Parish Mass. Hopefully there will be very few people at those Masses as the 11:00 a.m. Mass in the Park will be the Mass for all of us that weekend. There will be no 10:00 a.m. or 11:30 a.m. Masses on Sunday, September 16.
The Mass in the Park is a wonderful opportunity to invite neighbors and friends and former parishioners of Christ the King to gather together for a Homecoming Celebration. Please help spread the word!
This weekend we say farewell to our seminarian Michael Prakasam who will be returning to Saint Meinrad to begin his third year of theological studies. Michael successfully completed a twelve week Clinical Pastoral Education course at Saint Vincent hospital in which he was introduced to hospital ministry and the pastoral care of the sick. We thank Michael for his joyful presence among us and look forward to welcoming him home to Christ the King when he returns for Thanksgiving. God bless you, Michael!
See you at Mass!
