Updates from Fr. Jeff

Dear People of Christ the King Parish:

Thank you for keeping up with our faith.  We are in uncertain times, and our faith is a powerful foundation.  Different things are happening in our world right now that have caused much sadness.  We must remember that God is with us, and He has His eye on us, just as He has His eye on the sparrow.

This weekend is Father’s Day.  Happy Father’s Day to all our dads!  As a father, you are very important in your household.  A father sets the tone for the family.  We need good, strong, faith-filled families.  None of us are perfect, but that doesn’t mean we do not have the gift that God gives to each of us, to love and forgive.  To teach these things to our children is so important.  I know families are not what they were even 20 years ago—all the more reason to pay attention to ourselves as we look at “fatherhood”.  You who are parents, and I as a priest.  We must always be aware of personal accountability.  Our children see this and pick up on it.  Do not underestimate the power of who you are in your family.

This weekend our diocese is blessed to have 6 men ordained to the priesthood!  Please pray for them, as they are being ordained into a very different church than I was 30 years ago.  We are also remembering that our very own, Sam Conforti, is ordained as a Deacon!  Sam is assigned to the Cathedral in Joliet, and will be ordained a priest 11 months from now.  I know Sam holds Christ the King Parish very special to his heart.  He has a condominium here in the parish, and is proud to call this his home.

Beginning this weekend all people will come in through the narthex and check in near the baptismal font.  The lower level parking comes up the stairs or the elevator (only 2 people at a time), and the upper level people will come in through Door C-2 (Parish Life Center doors).  This will allow people from the upper level to enter the building and get in out of the elements as they wait to check in and be shown to their seat. 

Please remember doors will not open until 30 minutes before mass time.  The ideal time we prefer people to arrive is any time from 20 minutes before mass time to the time mass starts.

Please be advised the drinking fountains are not usable and the washrooms are for emergency use only.

Confessions have returned to the original time of 4:00-4:30 on Saturdays.  They may also be scheduled by appointment.

Also, this weekend, you will be able to exit through the narthex or one of the south doors (Door C-3 and Door C-4).

God bless you and your loved ones this Father’s Day weekend……..Fr. Jeff
