(During Distribution of Holy Communion of

10AM Sunday Mass, in Parish House)


SIGNS OF GRACE:
YOU ARE FORGIVEN/YOU ARE LOVED


This group will remain in the church during the homily, but will leave to join Colleen Carlin in the Parish House at the beginning of the distribution of Holy Communion. (We will ensure that those who have already received their First Communion will be first in line to receive Communion along with Colleen on the far right side of the altar rail with Fr. Ed before heading over to the Parish House).  The children will be dismissed at approximately 11:45 am. 
This new program from the Augustine Institute serves as preparation for both the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion* as well as a great review and reinforcement of truths already learned.


*Seven is the typical age to receive First Communion.  This requirement may be waived at the discretion of the Pastor in consultation with the child's parents and the First Communion teacher.  


Ages 9, 10, 11, & 12:


(9-9:45AM Sunday mornings, in the Parish House)
 

CONFIRMATION AND BEYOND

9, 10, 11 & 12 year olds will meet each Sunday from 9:00 to 9:45 am in the parish house, with Jan Meeks teaching.  This class will focus on the children developing a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, learning the articles of the Catholic faith as found in the Creed, all with the goal of preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

For those who have already been confirmed, this class will be adding "layer upon layer" of our Catholic Faith!


6th-12th Grade:


(Tuesdays 7-9PM)



ARISE Youth Group at Christ The King Church is open to boys and girls in 6th-12th grades. We meet on Tuesdays 7-9pm. ARISE offers dynamic Catholic faith formation talks, guided discussions by age groups, Eucharistic adoration, service projects, and time to socialize and have fun with like-minded peers. Our mission is to conform our hearts, minds, and wills to Jesus Christ, in whom true freedom and happiness are found.
