Day of Service

Join us for service and fellowship at our next Day of Service on Saturday, June 15 from 8am to noon. Christ the King has signed up to help six of our elderly neighbors right here in University City. You will report directly to the house with your team. The work is mostly yard work and painting. Look for the link to sign up via email or in next week’s bulletin. Contact Chrissy Frazier at or 314-308-0270 if you have any questions. If June 15 isn’t a good date, you can also contact Chrissy and arrange an agreeable time to volunteer.

We hope you can join us for another fabulous evening of fellowship and fun at the CTK Progressive Dinner! This event contributes a significant percentage of funds to support Ladies Sodality, supporting faith and educational initiatives for the women in our community. The Progressive Dinner is a wonderful opportunity to meet new people in our parish community and connect with those you haven't seen during the cold winter days! All are welcome. Share this attachment with other parishioners and encourage new attendees!

We are seeking volunteers to host dinner, a cocktail party, or co-host desserts with the Gerhardts in the MRC.  Please confirm what you are hosting (cocktail party or dinner) if you signed up already. If you've not hosted previously, pair up with someone and co-host. It is great fun!

Taize Prayer Service

On Wednesday, March 27 at 7pm, you are invited to a Taizé Prayer Service. Taizé Prayer is an elegant and simple service: short chants, often in Latin or other languages, are repeated over and over in the darkness. Brief scripture readings, Psalms, and other prayers are interspersed. An extended time of silence is kept. In less than an hour, it’s over. But the peaceful sense of wonder in God’s presence endures. We hope you will join us as part of your Lenten observances.
