New Schedule and Updates

Hello Everyone! Happy 4th of July!! I hope that everyone is still hanging in there and doing well.

As you may have already heard or seen, we are adding one more Mass on Sunday mornings, starting this Sunday, July 5th. So our outdoor Mass schedule is Saturday at 6PM, Sunday at 8AM and 9:15AM

Attendance is still limited to 100 people per Mass; those who attend MUST wear a mask the whole time, maintain a distance of 6 feet from others, and bring their own chairs.

You must register to attend these Masses.  Here’s the link to sign up: https://www.eventbrite.com/o/christ-the-king-parish-30417877024

Please DO NOT attend the outdoor Mass if you are ill or vulnerable (or live with someone who is ill or vulnerable).  Small children should not attend.  Attendance is at your own risk.  The general dispensation from attending Sunday Mass remains in effect.

We are continuing to livestream Mass on weekdays, a Holy Hour (Exposition, Adoration, and Benediction) on Fridays, and Weekend Masses in English and Spanish on Saturday evening.

Weekday Mass:  Monday through Friday at 8:00 a.m.

Holy Hour:  Friday only at 6:30 p.m. 

Confessions! Saturday afternoon at 3:30PM to 5PM in the School Cafeteria!

1. Please park in one of 10 numbered parking spots in the lower parking lot on Stevens Drive.  If the spots are full, wait until one is available.

2. Wait in your car for an usher to indicate your turn.  If you have more than one person in your vehicle, one occupant at a time will proceed to the cafeteria and the others will wait in the car.  No more than 8 per car.

3. Maintain a distance of 6 feet from others.

4. Sign in before you enter the cafeteria; registration is for your own protection/contact tracing and the list will be shredded after 14 days. 

5. Be mindful of the time spent in confession so all can be heard.

6. Use the hand sanitizer we’ll have available.

Sunday Mass:  recorded during the Saturday Vigil (English at 4:00 p.m., Spanish at 5:00 p.m.).

**UPDATE** Here is Bishop Tyson’s official announcement for Fr. Edgar- https://yakimadiocese.org/2020/06/15/fr-edgar-quiroga-assigned-to-christ-the-king-catholic-church/

For more updates from Bishop Tyson, keep on eye on the Diocese’s webpage: https://yakimadiocese.org/

I want to thank everyone for their generosity, their cooperation and selflessness. We have been able to add one more Mass and start having Confessions again because all of you have been helping us follow the guidelines by wearing your masks and keeping a safe distance from everyone when coming to Mass.

I have also sent out a survey to everyone I had e-mail addresses for asking what their preference was for video meetings and if that would even be an option for them in order to have a virtual bible study. There were also some ideas of what bible studies we could do, since the videos were online. If you have any suggestions/ preferences or would like to take the survey, please e-mail me at ckadultre@gmail.com.

We’re Still Here!!

Hi Everyone! I know it seems like we have been practicing “safe distancing” for months now, but I do see some signs of hope and that the end may be near. There is a plan now in place from our government to help transition the state and everyone back to normal and opening up again.

4 Phase Plan

With that in mind, here is what Catholics should expect and look forward to as we transition back into being able to gather once again physically as the Body of Christ-

What to Expect When Public Mass Resumes

We thank you for your wonderful support and patience as we struggle through navigating this new online environment.

We are still offering livestreamed daily Mass at 8AM on our YouTube channel as well as livestreamed Adoration with Exposition and Benediction at 6:30PM. You may have noticed that we have two scheduled livestreams from St. Paul’s Cathedral in Yakima listed on our channel. On May 15, we will be livestreaming the Transitional Diaconate Ordination Mass for Michael Kelly at 4:45PM and on May 22, we will be livestreaming the Priestly Ordination Mass of Deacon Edgar Quiroga Cebellos at 4:45PM. Please spread the word and come join us on those dates.

Christ the King Adult Religious Education

We are also continuing to call on our parishioners to check in on you and we have noticed that we have a lot of out of date phone numbers. So if you have changed your phone number or have updated your e-mail, please call the parish office so we can update our files.

We are also doing our very best to keep everyone updated, not only from the parish website, but from the new parish Facebook page as well!

Happy Easter! He is Risen! Alleluia!

Hello Everyone! And Happy Easter!! Rejoice! Be Glad!

This may seem hard to do right now, with all the fear, worry and stress going around due to the pandemic, but as Catholics, as Christians, we know Who holds all of us in His loving hands. We know Who is really in control (even when we want to be the one in control) and we know that He will take care of us. So we Rejoice!! We cry out once again, Alleluia!! He is Risen, death no longer holds it sway! Sin and death have been conquered!!

So come and rejoice, come and celebrate with us all Easter season! We are still holding livestreaming Daily Mass at 8AM, Monday through Friday. We also will still be livestreaming Exposition, Adoration and Benediction at 6:30PM- 7:30PM every weeknight as well from our Youtube channel- Christ the King Adult Religious Education

Here is the Spiritual Communion Prayer that is posted in the video description as well for every Mass:

“My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, Come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already here and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.”

Also, here is a beautiful poem about what we are experiencing right now with only spiritual communion- Spiritual Communion

We are still here, doing whatever we can to reach out to you, to serve your spiritual needs and be a parish community as best we can during this time. As always, please feel free to e-mail, call, text; however you wish to communicate, we are here for you. We miss you all!

Jesus is Risen! Alleluia!! Sing, Dance and Rejoice!
