All students attend Mass together each Friday morning beginning at 8:15 a.m. Holy Days of Obligation that fall on a school day are celebrated at 8:30 a.m. Preschool children do not attend school Mass until November. Students in first through sixth grade rotate leading the Mass each Friday. We post the grade designated to represent for the our Mass readings On the school’s Google calendar on the days Mass is scheduled. The children’s choir always sings at the school Masses.
The sacramental life of the children of the Catholic tradition is an important component of the religion program at Christ the King Catholic School. Preparations for two sacraments, Reconciliation and Eucharist, are the core of our efforts. In accordance with the Diocesan guidelines, candidates for First Eucharist will receive the sacrament of Reconciliation prior to their First Eucharist. Parents are required to be active partners in the preparation of their children for these sacraments. Parents and children will attend a Reconciliation Retreat during the fall semester and children will attend a First Communion Retreat during the spring semester. There is one mandatory meeting parents will attend in the spring semester. The sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist are only conferred to baptized students.
