What is the length of services?

You can expect our liturgy to last between 70 and 90 minutes.  Almost every Sunday there is something special to celebrate and when it’s time to pass the peace, we try not to rush that important ritual.


What should I wear?

You are welcome to attend Mass in casual attire.


Are children and youth welcomed?

Most definitely!  Kids are invited (but not required) to join others in their age group for a children’s liturgy in Koelzer Hall during the homily.  Then later in the mass, kids rejoin their parents in the sanctuary for the rest of the service. 

Christmas Eve is a special celebrative liturgy especially designed for kids to welcome Jesus with a procession of bell-ringing children. 


Is Christ the King a tithing church?

Finances are a reality for every congregation — no matter what faith tradition.  At Christ the King we encourage rather than impose a tithe on members.


When you say “all are welcome”, does that mean me?  With much discussion, prayer and reflection our parish recently revised our welcome statement. Here is an excerpt from it:

We strive to welcome into full participation in the Body of Christ persons of every age, race, cultural background, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability, social and economic situation, marital status, and faith background. We do not seek to erase our differences. Rather, we lovingly embrace the rich and unique dimensions within each of us; this is the wholeness of life.” 

Yes, we mean you—-YOU are welcomed!
