Sr. Thea Bowman School Young Musicians at CTK

On Sunday, October 27 at 10am Mass, young student violinists from Sr. Thea Bowman School in East Saint Louis will enrich our worship with their music. They will play an extended prelude beginning at 9:45 and will also share their gifts during Mass. After Mass, we have a chance to meet them at a coffee and doughnuts reception with these students and teachers. Sr. Thea Bowman School is the last remaining Catholic School in East Saint Louis — come learn about the impact they are making!

We are also seeking a new coordinator to help organize these service opportunities. If this is something you are interested in doing, please contact Monsignor Mike at or Chrissy Frazier at


Beginning on September 25, you are invited to join other Christians around the country for 40 Days for Life — a 40 day campaign of prayer and fasting to end abortion. On October 22 from 1-7pm, Christ the King parishioners will join other individuals in standing in peaceful prayer outside of the abortion facility on Forest Park Ave. We ask that you would please consider giving an hour of your time on this day for all of the men, women, and children who have been and will be impacted by the devastation of abortion. If you are interested or want to learn more, please contact Jamie LaBelle at 618-806-2809 or
