Christ Our King Christian Formation
The best gift a parent can give a child is the gift of faith.
At Christ Our King the approach to Christian Formation is twofold:
First and foremost, we see the parents as the main religious influence on their children. It is important to create an environment at home that has Christ at the center and where going to Mass every Sunday is a priority. It is also important that parents continue to work on their faith, so they will pass it on to their children. To assist in this life-long learning experience, we have several adult education programs.
Second, we realize the commitment that the community has in raising our children to know and love God. It is vital for anyone, no matter what age, to be connected to the parish community. Our catechetical ministry embraces each young person and strives to share the Gospel message with them. We have many dedicated members of our parish who are committed to sharing their faith journey with our youth who are registered in our Christian Formation program.
Where and when do we meet?
Classes for 3 and 4 year old children meet from 9:00 to 10:30 AM (during the 9:30 AM Mass). Children are dropped off at the Life Center (across from the Church) and picked up at the Christ Our King-Stella Maris School.
Kindergarten through 7th grade children meet from 10:30 to 11:45 AM (immediately following the 9:30 AM Mass). Children meet in the Christ Our King-Stella Maris School.
Christ Our King Church has established a Christian Formation class for special needs individuals to be sure that their religious needs are met. This program was designed for children whose parents desire that they be in a Sunday School Class, but due to their disability they have not been. Classes meet every Thursday afternoon from 5:00 to 6:00 PM in the Youth Center (located within the Christ Our King-Stella Maris School playground).
