Baptism welcomes us into the Church and immerses us into Christian life. It marks out spiritual rebirth as daughters and sons of God.
Cathechumens (adults preparing for baptism) are received into the Church during the Easter Vigil.
A baptismal preparation class for parents and godparents is necessary before Christian Baptism. Parents must be registered as Christ the King Cathedral parishioners at least six months. Christ the King offers a baptism class the second Saturday of every month.
Contact Connie Munoz at the Parish Office, to register for the next available Baptism Class.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation, sometimes referred to as “confession” celebrates God’s mercy and helps us to experience divine forgiveness. It enables us to return to spiritual health in the family of God, to forgive ourselves and to become reconciled with others.
Confessions are held every Saturday from 3:00-5:00PM or by appointment.
Contact Connie Munoz at the Parish Office, to schedule an appointment for Reconciliation.
Eucharist (First Communion)
Eucharist celebrates our life together as a community. It is the central act of worship for Catholics. In the Eucharist, Christ is most profoundly present in the Church, which gathers to hear the Word of God and to share the nourishment of Christ’s Body with on another. Eucharist is celebrated by the entire community at all mass times, and is celebrated daily.
As source and summit, the Eucharist calls His children into full communion with Him, in order to provide the nourishment to then go out into the world and share Him with all they encounter. CTKC Faith Formation prepares children so where they better understand the true presence of Christ in the Eucharist and in their lives. In a way they are better to both recognize and facilitate everyday encounters with him. Children’s Faith Formation prepares children with a two year program to make their first reconciliation and first communion in the third grade. Contact Elsa Hernandez at the Parish Office for more information.
If you or someone you know is homebound and would like to receive Communion, please contact the Parish Office to have one of our Extra-Ordinary Ministers visit you.
Confirmation should be a strengthening and the start of renewed zeal for discipleship. It should awaken our experience of Baptism and point us toward our sharing in the Eucharist. It should strengthen us for the journey of discipleship and for active participation in the faith community.
Confirmation is a journey of faith for our young church, and it’s because we recognize this journey is not the same for each teen that we have adapted and adjusted to grow our program to better equip the teens for the journey that lies ahead after they make their Confirmation. Confirmation is not a graduation or the end of the teen’s journey but an encounter with the Spirit to grow us into disciples. We want the teens to take ownership of their Catholic faith and work alongside the parents to grow this fire in the teen. Christ the King begins Confirmation with a year of discernment in the seventh grade. After a year of discernment the teen then makes their decision on when they feel ready to be Confirmed leaving it open from grades 8-12. Contact Andrew Cortez at the Parish Office for more information.
If you are 18+ years old and have not made your Confirmation, please contact the Parish Office to get in touch with our adult faith formation coordinator.
Matrimony joins two people in marriage for a lifetime of dedication to each other’s well-being and the well-being of their children and the community. The Sacrament of Matrimony is usually celebrated on Saturday afternoon.
Call the Parish Office at least six months prior to the intended wedding date to schedule an interview and arrange for pre-marriage instruction.
Holy Orders is a sacrament of service by which some are called by God to lead and serve the Church and the world as priests.
The entire community is encouraged to pray for vocations, that people of all ages be open to God’s call to service. Anyone interested in information about a life of ministry is encouraged to speak with a parish priest.
Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of the sick celebrates and reminds us of God’s compassion and helps us to experience spiritual — and sometimes physical — strengthening when we are ill.
A Healing Mass is offered every first Saturday of the month at 8:15am.
Anointing of the sick is also offered following Sunday and weekday Masses. Otherwise, please inform the parish office when someone in your family desires the anointing.
