Registration and Parishioner Status
Please make Christ Our King your parish by completing the online registration form or filling out a paper registration card. The online form can be found by clicking here. Cards can be found in the rear of the church or by visiting the Parish Office in the Life Center.
It has become a general procedure that statements testifying to the active, participating, contributing status of an individual be provided for those wishing to be sacramental sponsors or receive parishioner rates for Catholic school tuition. We cannot issue such statements if you are not a registered and active member of Christ Our King. You must use the offertory envelopes provided to registered parishioners to verify your active status.
Please click here for more information.
The envelope system helps the Parish Office to determine a household's parishioner status (active or inactive). Weekly envelopes in the Sunday collection basket indicate regular Mass attendance.
Parishioners who donate electronically should place an empty envelope in the collection basket, checking the box labeled "online giving." Should a parishioner come to Mass without an envelope, he/she may use a blue supplementary envelope (available in the church narthex).
Visit the parishioner status webpage for more info.
Marriage, Divorce, and the Church
Questions about Marriage? Convalidation? Family Life? Divorce? Annulment? Looking for resources and support? Visit marriage website, sponsored by the USCCB.
Additional USCCB resources:
"Keep Sunday holy" — this is God's commandment. Faithful attendance at Sunday Mass is the foundation of a Catholic upbringing.
At Christ Our King, it's especially important for families with children enrolled in Christian Formation classes or Catholic School to use parish envelopes weekly as a record of Mass attendance. Sunday Mass attendance is a determining factor for evaluating a child's readiness to receive First Holy Communion or Confirmation. Mass attendance also determines a student's tuition rate at COK-SM School or BEHS.
