Choir Practice – Consider sharing your voice with us when we return!

Why not join our parish choir? Share your voice with our parish family; it will bless you and us!  

“Music ministry provides beauty, joy, comfort, inspiration, and musical prayer for our communal liturgies and various parish celebrations.  This is possible because of the generous sharing of time and talent of diverse and committed members.  If you can carry a tune and want to learn, come sing with us!”
Once we start meeting again we will rehearse every Wednesday from  6:30p.m. to 8:00p.m in the Music Room in the Little Flower Formation Center.….and sing for mass every other weekend.   
eOT22cic*It is an easy way to make new friends and feel a part of a group
*It is therapeutic; singers can put aside, for awhile at least, the other pressures and concerns of the day
*It provides musical memories that can momentarily remove you from difficult situations by calling to mind beautiful music and poetry
*It gives members a sense of pride and self-worth
*It instills beneficial posture and breathing techniques
*It develops better habits of good enunciation
*It reminds us that there are no short cuts to excellence; careful preparation leads to reaching goals
*It teaches an historical perspective through music and texts written during various periods of history
*It reminds us of the positive impact a Choirdedicated group can make beyond that which is possible for an individual….the value of teamwork
*It conveys that leadership, demeanor and good attitude make a significant contribution to the success of a group
*It adds beauty and aesthetic depth
*It provides a healthy cultural and creatively artistic balance
*It develops poise under pressure
*It is a foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment in music

DMF 2020

 

 

 

 

I’m launching our annual Diocesan Ministry Fund (DMF) appeal two weeks early because I’ll be gone two weekends in February and don’t want to burden Fr. Larry Solan (my substitute) with raising pledges. February 29 (it’s a leap year) is still the official end of our pledge efforts.

First, thanks for everyone who pledges something extra, above and beyond their Christ the King  contribution, to DMF. Your sacrifices are the reason we reach our goal. Please continue!

Second, I appeal to everyone else to at least pledge 25% of your Christ the King contribution to DMF on your envelopes. You will be the reason we get a DMF refund!

And please, if you contribute by check or in cash every week please pledge online at http://www.diocesanministryfund.org

Thanks everybody!

– Fr. John O.

The above letter from Bishop Berg and a prayer card is available in the Narthex.

Cold and Flu season

Cold and Flu season have arrived. Some reminders: (1) if you are not feeling well, you are excused from your obligation to attend a Weekend Mass. We welcome your return to the Table of the Lord when you are well. (2) If you are here and have a cough or other cold or flu symptoms, please do not drink from the cup at Communion time. The consecrated host is the complete Christ, body and blood (in case you forgot); (3) If you are scheduled as CM please get a replacement;  (4) It is quite acceptable to bow towards someone instead of shaking their hand at the Sign of Peace.
