On Sunday November 24th, the Catholic Church will celebrate Feast of Christ the King.

    In 1925, Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin were rising to power in the world. Pope Pius XI wanted to draw the world’s attention back to Jesus the only one who could bring lasting peace.

    While the world was increasingly telling Christians that they must compartmentalize their religion and give their highest allegiance to the government, Pope Pius XI invited the Church to celebrate and honor the Power and Gift of Jesus Christ. It is Jesus who turns our concept of kingship on its head. Power made strong by humility and self-emptying influence and authority exercised through self-sacrifice and mercy, leadership displayed in service. Let’s embrace Jesus and his Kingdom.

    I invite as many as possible to come and pray to Jesus Christ our King as we honor him. On Sunday come and pray in the presence of Jesus at Mary, Mother of the Church. Following the 9:00 AM Mass the Blessed Sacrament will be present on the Altar for Adoration until Noon.

    Our hope is to teach our children how to appreciate the gift of silent prayer in the Church with the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.  Similar to Pope Pius XI who wanted the Church to gain a new appreciation to know that with Jesus we can face the challenges that the world can offer.

    Please mark your calendars and come together to Pray as we honor Christ our King!
