Sixth Sunday of Easter
Voting Closes Sunday for Parish Council Election
Voting for the Parish Council closes Sunday. The Parish Council serves in an executive capacity to advise the pastor regarding the spiritual, social, and educational life of the parish. The Council, together with the pastor, also approves the annual parish budget. Congratulations to the nominees! You can read about them and cast your vote for up to 3 candidates online.
Weekend Announcements
Did you know that we have begun reusing our liturgy sheets at weekend Masses? Please help us get ready for the next attendees by returning your liturgy sheet to the place where you picked it up. If it's not in great shape and needs to be thrown away, please help us by disposing of it in a trash receptacle. Thanks for helping us leave the church better than we found it!

On Wednesday, May 25th, we're taking a Downtown Day Trip! Meet at CK at 11:30 before lunch at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill, followed by a 1:45pm cruise on the Oklahoma River. Please call Pam at (405) 842-1483 to reserve a spot.

Tuesday, May 31st, is our day at the Regional Food Bank. Let Pam know (pam@ckokc.org) by Friday, May 27th if you'd like to join us.

Traveling Icon of St. Joseph Comes to Christ the King
A traveling icon of St. Joseph, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, will be stationed at our church May 25th to June 5th. We will be venerating it on Friday, May 27th after the 7am Mass.

This icon is part of the Pilgrim Icon Program. Every few years, the Knights of Columbus selects an icon of a saint whose patronage is particularly inspiring to Knights and their communities. You can download the resource booklet here.
