Christ the King Mission Statement
The People of Christ the King in Lombard are a welcoming, vibrant faith community building the kingdom of God through our many ministries. We celebrate our diversity, seeking to realize the gifts of each member of our parish, as we are all joined together under one faith, in a spiritual journey of evangelization, service to others, and a reverence for all life. In the Eucharist, we find new life, and bring this life to others through stewardship, education, and worship.

Please do not leave the bottles in the rectory mail box, at the rectory, or on a counter at church. If you cannot afford to make a donation, we will gladly accept the empty bottles back also.

The 2014 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal begins with a mailing that many of our parishioners have received or will soon receive. This is a mailing from Bishop Conlon asking for a pledge to the 2014 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal. The Appeal not only funds many of the operations of the diocese, it funds services that are of great help to the ministries here in our parish. For example, God Is Retreat, Youth Ministry, Confirmation Retreat, Catholic Youth Bibles, Living the Eucharist, and Foundations of Faith Formation for Adults. This year, the theme of the Appeal is Trust in the Fathers Care. God does provide for us. He never forgets us. His love sustains each of us. He is always giving to us. His grace is always there for us. Do we trust in the Fathers care? Christ tells us that we cannot serve two masters. Do we acknowledge Gods gifts and show him our gratitude for them? One way that we can show our gratitude is by offering our generous financial support to our parish and to our diocese and to the Church throughout the world. The gifts we give enable ministries, education, and services that touch thousands of lives. Our parish goal is $ $55,236.00. With your support, we can reach and exceed this goal. When we exceed our goal in paid pledges, we will receive 60% of the amount over goal for use in our parish. Please answer Bishop Conlons request and make a generous pledge. All pledges can be paid in 10 installments. Thank you in advance for your support.

I want to be happy. I want to feel loved. I want more meaning in my life. I want to get more out of the Mass and other Sacraments. I want to better understand my Catholic faith. I want to feel more a part of my parish community.
. . . If any of these statements ring in your heart, please consider attending God Is! A One Day Journey Closer to God on Saturday Feb 22nd, 2014. During this dynamic single day of spiritual renewal presented by Evangelize All Ministries, you will be led on a journey closer to God discovering how to better embrace His love and His truth. And you will be given tools to help you in ongoing walk through life. The day begins with a continental breakfast at 8:30 AM and concludes with our regularly scheduled Saturday evening Mass at 5:00 PM. The suggested donation for this day is $20.00. All participants will receive breakfast and lunch and a year of inspirational and informative CDs or downloads from Catholic Lighthouse Media, NFP (a $72.00 value!).

Mark your calendars for Christ the Kings annual St. Joseph Table to be held Sunday, March 16, at 1 oclock in the Early Learning Academys Gymnasium. This parish-wide, family-oriented, community event is always loads of fun and is a wonderful opportunity to share food and companionship with family and friends and help those in need. This years proceeds will benefit the people of the Philippines and the people of Washington, Illinois, who were devastated by storms that hit their communities. We will be accepting donations of new or gently used items for our raffle baskets. You will also be able to sign up for the food item you would like to donate. Look for more information in future bulletins. If you would like to join the St. Josephs Table Committee, please give Mary Ellen Clish, St. Joseph Table Chairman, a call at 1-630-495-1339. Volunteers are always needed and more than welcome. We would like to share a short history of the St. Joseph Table for those who are unfamiliar with or new to the event. Following is that brief description. The table is a tradition of simple, usually meatless dishes, prepared and shared with neighbors and friends. Those attending offer a free-will donation and all the proceeds are given to the poor or a charitable organization. Sicilian/Italian families started this tradition. History tells us they prayed to St. Joseph to end a famine caused by drought. When their prayers were answered and it rained, the people showed thanks to St. Joseph by sharing their precious food with the poor. The menu typically included pasta, fish, eggs/omelets, bread and vegetables. The reason for this meatless tradition is believed to be the fact that the feast day falls during the Lenten season. There are special breads baked in crosses and other Christian shapes, which are displayed on the main table in the center of the celebration. The main table, usually in the shape of a cross or three-tier (to signify the Trinity), is decorated with flowers, a sample of each food item, candles and an image of St. Joseph. It is then blessed on the day of the event. The St. Josephs Table Committee

Dominican Sister Tells Her Story

Sister Tatiana, a Dominican Sister travels from Siberia to Christ the King Parish to share her Vocation Story and Sisters Call to Serve the Poor in Siberia. The Sisters' mission is among the poor and children from dysfunctional families. Sisters organize and lead a Day Care for the children, education program, summer retreats and provide food and clothing for them. Sisters do not earn any salary but live on from people's donations. If you would like to support our Sisters' Mission please come to the Mass on February 23rd at 8:00am; 10:00am and/ or Noon Mass. Thank you! Pay check to: Dominican Sisters, on Memo: Siberia. God bless you, Sr. Joachima Celinska, OP Phone: 708-458-3040 You have supported religious Sisters from Mexico, Philippines and now Siberia. We have experienced at Mass the commitment of one Religious Sister from the Joliet diocese for 54 years, another Sister 57 years who attended our CTK Mass. We have religious Sisters who served in our parish like Sr. Helen. Is there a young woman or even a high school girl or college, thinking about a vocation? Lets listen to the stories of the Dominican Sisters on February 23rd. Our generosity will assist the good Sisters to continue the work of Christ. Pray for vocations to the Religious Life as a Sister or Brother, like Br. Tom from Montini who attends our Liturgies. Fr. Peter

Thank you to all parishioners for your very generous contributions!
