SUNDAY COMMUNION  11:30 AM – 1:00 PM

PARISH OFFICE – When visiting the office, you are asked to wear a mask for the safety of everyone. Thank you for your cooperation!

UPDATED August 6, 2021.

As most of you know, on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a change to its mask-wearing guidance and now advises that fully vaccinated persons wear a mask in indoor public places in areas of the country with “substantial and high” transmission of Covid-19. This is to reduce the risk of being infected with the more transmissible Delta variant of the virus and possibly spreading it to others.

Currently, almost all territory of the Fall River Diocese lies in counties classified as either “substantial” or “high” areas of community transmission. In light of this, the Diocese of Fall River is strongly encouraging all parishioners to follow the CDC guidelines and to wear a mask while attending Mass or any other liturgical celebration unless unable because of a medical condition or under the age of 2. This is particularly important for anyone with a weakened immune system; anyone at risk for severe disease because of age or underlying medical condition; or anyone in a household with someone having these conditions or with someone who is unvaccinated.

The recent uptick in virus transmission in some places is a reminder that the pandemic has not yet passed, and continued vigilance is required. Parishioners are asked to please keep in mind the need for a collective commitment to the overall good of the parish community.

Our Mass schedule can be found in the footer, along with our location and mailing address. For office hours go to; About-Masses-Office Hours-Directions. We would love to have you join us as we listen to God’s Word and share in the Eucharist.

PROMOTION TO SENIOR ALTAR SERVERS

Sunday, September 5, 2021 at the 8:30 Mass, Altar Servers Jonah Erdman and Emilia Alliegro were promoted to the rank of Master of Ceremonies.  It is a long tradition at Christ the King to promote those who are seniors in high school, in which they wear the scapular emblazoned with the crown of Christ the King.  Congratulations and thank you for your many years of dedicated service!


SPECIAL Sunday Go-to-Mass Masks

The masks are embroidered with the CTK Crown and are available for sale for $15 each with part of the profit going to benefit the parish. Jean Giddings is the talented seamstress and embroiderer who creates these adjustable masks which are available in various sizes. The material used is a hand-washable poly-cotton and comes in an off-white appropriate for the Easter Season and then green for Ordinary Time but are also possible to be made in the liturgical colors of purple, red, and black upon request. As the new normal will most likely include the use of masks in public gatherings like worship for the foreseeable future, why not have a special Sunday Mask for church?To order CLICK the printable form and return it to the parish office with payment.
