As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace. (1 Peter 4.10)

Children’s Sunday Program (Ages 3 to 6)
Throughout the year, Christ the King University Parish celebrates Sunday Mass at Revera’s Windermere on the Mount (10:30am, weekly), and in Labatt Hall at King’s University College (5:00pm, September - April). The Children’s Sunday Program, which invites children ages 3 to 6 to take part in catechetical activities, accompanies the 10:30am Mass. Activities include prayer, song singing and a variety of crafts related to the Sunday Gospel reading.
Youth Events (Ages 8 to 12)
Christ the King University Parish offers a variety of opportunities for children, ages 8 to 12, that are directly related to the different seasons of the Catholic Church. Some examples include the annual Advent Party, Lenten Retreat and Stations of the Cross. Youth ages 12 and up are encouraged to join us and begin developing their leadership skills taking on certain roles and responsibilities. Through participating as young leaders they will be able to practice their communication skills; develop their gifts through holding leadership roles; and be formed in faith through participating in a variety of faith-filled activities. Follow our monthly schedule (above) for event dates and locations.
Leadership Opportunities (Ages 13 to 17)
It is becoming more and more evident how important it is to engage students in healthy, positive experiences whether it is coming together in fellowship enjoying a movie, basketball game, having a meal with one another or serving in the community. Christ the King University Parish offers some opportunities for high school students that are both leadership oriented and rooted in the Catholic faith. Students who wish to be engaged can volunteer with Christ the King University Parish's Children's Programs, the Parish Coffee House, Peace Camp and other citywide outreach projects that take place year to year.
