Thank you to everyone who participated in last Sunday’s All Parish Mass and Picnic at Broad Ripple Park. 600 parishioners gathered on a beautiful summer day for a very public celebration of the Mass and a wonderful picnic lunch. It truly was a ‘Family Reunion’ for our parish family. Congratulations to the 5:00 p.m. Saturday Mass goers for claiming the coveted “Christ the King Tug-of-War” trophy! The Stewardship Commission and the School Commission’s Parish Engagement Committee thank everyone who helped with the many details that went into this very special parish celebration. We extend a heartfelt thank you to the planning committee and organizers of our first-ever All Parish Mass and Picnic in the Park!
The all Parish Mass and Picnic in the Park was an end-of-summer bash for the parish and now a host of activities are beginning at the parish. Fasten your pew belts!
This Sunday marks the beginning of our Religious Education Classes for our parish sons and daughters who are studying in area public schools. At the request of parents, the classes have returned to Sunday morning this year and will be held from 10:00 a.m. – 11:15 p.m. in the school building. The classes are for children from the age of 4 through 8th grade. Parents are the first teachers of their children in the ways of faith and accept this commitment at their child’s baptism. The parish stands ready to help through our ministry of Catholic Education at Christ the King Catholic School and through our Religious Education Classes. Please help us get the word out to all parish families with children studying in public schools that the Religious Education Classes are beginning.
This coming Tuesday, September 25, a new season of RCIA will begin at Christ the King. It is not too late to extend an invitation to anyone you know who might be interested in knowing more about our Catholic Faith. The RCIA will meet on Tuesdays in the Saint Joseph Meeting Room from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
The Fall Scripture Studies have just begun and it’s not too late to join fellow parishioners in one of two different Scripture Studies that are being offered. One study examines the connection between the Old and New Testament which sheds light on why we do many of the things we do as Catholics and a second study examines the message of the prophets. Religious Education isn’t just for kids! All adults are encouraged to join a Bible Study. In the insightful words of Saint Jerome, “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.”
See you at Mass!
