Welcome from the Pastor
In the Spirit of our Parish Mission Statement that calls us to be a welcoming parish, as Pastor of Christ the King Parish, I welcome you to our new Parish Web-site. It is intended to provide general information about the parish, the sacraments, timely news concerning parish events and programs as well as ways to contact the parish directly. Besides a parish focus, it also provides easy access to information about the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Universal Church. There are also related links to websites that will inform and encourage your spiritual life, especially through the daily Scriptures. It is my hope that the new website will be a blessing for our parish—a blessing that will inform and inspire us along the way. Take advantage of the informational and inspirational opportunities it provides.
Prayer For Peace
“Merciful God, forgive us for the disrespect we show for human life. Lead us to be wise and patient enough to deal with conflict through words and prayer—-not with guns or through violence. May those who have died have life in your kingdom. Grant comfort and peace to their families. Please take from me any hatred and violence in my heart. Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”
Summer has begun. Hopefully you’ll have an opportunity to enjoy it.
Our Summer Sunday Schedule has one less Sunday morning Mass (8 and 11 only) because we have less people who come to Mass through the summer. Less people often means less money in the Sunday Collection. As always, I thank you for your generosity and also request that you make up in the collection for any Sundays you may miss.
It may also be a time for you to consider making your Sunday contribution online. A number of parishioners do it throughout the year. Click on this Parish Giving link for more information.
We have a lesser number of activities during the summer. Don’t forget our Christmas in July that benefits St Francis Inn. We also have a Sunday Brunch on Sunday morning, July 17th at Katie O’s in Franklin Mills. Last but not least, we’ll be selling Fritz’s Sticky Buns again the weekend of Sunday August 21st.
Enjoy the summer at home or on the road!
