Christ the King Thrift Shop:

The thrift Shop is open from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM Tuesday through Saturday for the distribution and sale of clothing and household items. The chief purpose is to provide an economical place to shop for people on very limited budgets. Vouchers are given to those in extreme circumstances who are unable to pay. However, all are welcome to come and shop. The proceeds are used to supplement the budget of St. Vincent De Paul Society. Funds are also used for the educational efforts of the parish. The Center is staffed by volunteers and anyone wishing to help is most welcome. To learn more click St. Vincent DePaul Society

MINISTRY OF HOPE:

Men and women from the parish assist at the time of death, to the families whose loved one has died. They go to the homes to help the family prepare for the Funeral Liturgy and to select the readings, as well as the music for the Mass. It is our custom to bring a small loaf of bread to the bereaved family.

PARISH NURSING:


Parish Nursing and Health Ministry is a Parish-based ministry, which cares for the whole person – body, mind and spirit. This ministry arises from the needs of the Parish Community and is realized through the talents of registered nurses and other health professionals or lay leaders who combine health science with pastoral care. While each Parish Community’s program is unique, all programs provide for wellness, health and healing as well as access to community health resources. To learn more click Parish Nursing
