Welcome to our beloved church!
A FEW REMINDERS FROM THE DIOCESE OF HARRISBURG:
The Diocese strongly recommends that those who are sick, have a compromised immune system or are considered more vulnerable continue to remain home at this time. -The dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass is still in place.
Trinity Sunday (May 29-30, 2021), along with lifting the mask requirements for the fully vaccinated, (if you haven’t been vaccinated you are still required to wear a mask while attending Mass or in the church building) we will be lifting the pew restrictions in our churches. The exchange of the Sign of Peace will also be restored in our parishes. Priests and deacons will no longer be required to wear masks for the entrance and closing processions of Mass.
Bishop Gainer has indicated that the following should remain in place at all parishes and institutions within the Diocese of Harrisburg until future notice is given:
The distribution of the Precious Blood in side chalices to the Lay Faithful remains suspended.
The vessels placed upon the altar for distribution of Holy Communion to the faithful are to remain covered throughout the Eucharistic Prayer.
Masks are to be worn by the ordinary and extraordinary ministers distributing Holy Communion.
Hand sanitization for the distribution of Holy Communion should remain in place.
Permission for the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation to occur in alternate spaces is granted until further notice.
The mission of Christ the King will continue during these difficult times. But in order to continue, we need your support. We ask you to pray for our Parish, our Diocese and our Country. We know these times are challenging, but we humbly ask for your continued financial support if you desire and are able. If you can't attend Mass, your weekly offering can continue by mailing your check to: Christ the King, PO Box 297, Benton, PA 17814.
It would be of great help if you would include your offering envelope.
You can also send your Diocesan Annual Campaign Contribution to Christ the King or the Diocese of Harrisburg. Your check should be made out to "Diocese of Harrisburg".
Thank you for your continued support of Christ the King. May God keep you safe, continue to bless you and your families, and keep us all in His loving care.
