Update on Masses at the Church of Christ the King
As we continue our efforts to ensure the safe opening of Masses to parishioners of the Church of Christ the King we appreciate your patience, cooperation, and continued support.
Please also be advised of these important notices regarding Mass attendance:
- Catholics are still dispensed from their obligation of Sunday Mass attendance at this time;
- COVID-19 is still in a threat to public health and our parish is only open to 25% capacity;
- Screening and public health protocols are in place – we ask that you come to Mass at least 15 minutes early, check your temperature at home and wash your hands before coming to the church for Mass;
- All parishioners are expected to wear non-medical masks and should bring their own masks – we suggest that parishioners over the age of five wear masks during Mass;
- Some parishioners may not be allowed entry for a specific Mass if capacity is reached before their arrival, or they present symptoms during the screening questionnaire;
- Those who are considered vulnerable and those who care for them should not attend;
- There will be no children’s liturgy at this time;
- Washrooms will be closed, so parishioners are reminded to be aware of this before attending Masses.
New Series "Called to Serve" Highlights Vocation Stories
In this new series “Called to Serve” we profile various people who God has called to serve the Church in many different ways – Deacons, Priests, Bishops, Religious Sisters and Brothers and Lay Men & Women. In each episode, we highlight the journey of what it’s like to be called by God, and discover the grace God grants to those He calls. In this first episode, we profile Bishop Marcel Damphousse, Bishop of the Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie, and Archbishop-Elect of the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall. Bishop Damphousse shares when he knew that God was calling him to serve the Church as a priest, the joys and struggles he faced, and what he is looking forward to in his new appointment as Archbishop.

Prayer of Spiritual Communion
A PRAYER TO CHRIST THE KING
O Jesus Christ, I acknowledge you as universal King. All that has been made has been created for You. Exercise all Your rights over me. I renew my Baptismal Vows. I renounce Satan, his pomps and his works; I promise to live as a good Christian. And, in particular do I pledge myself to labor, to the best of my ability, for the triumph of the rights of God and of Your Church. Divine Heart of Jesus, to You do I offer my poor services, laboring that all hearts may acknowledge Your sacred kingship, and that thus the reign of Your peace be established throughout the whole universe.
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and desire to receive you. Since I cannot, at this moment, receive you in the Sacrament, come spiritually into my heart. I embrace you, for You are already there, and unite myself totally to you.
Never Permit me to be separated from you.
Soul of Christ, sanctify me. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, inebriate me. Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me. O good Jesus, hear me. Within Thy wounds hide me. Suffer me not to be separated from Thee. From the malicious enemy defend me.
In the hour of my death call me. And bid me come unto Thee. That with Thy saints, I may praise Thee forever and ever.
