Assisting in the Faith Formation of our youth
When a child attends a Catholic School, every day is infused with prayer, traditions, service, icons and a commitment to the highest moral standards and values. Christ the King Catholic School continues what the parents start at home.
- Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
- Academic study of religious truths and Scripture
- Daily prayer and weekly Mass
- Understanding the significance of Catholic heritage and traditions
- Meditation and spiritual reading time
Additionally, Christ the King students participate in many forms of service. First Graders pray and send cards to cancer patients from the St. Peregrine Shrine.
Second graders create and auction a quilt to raise money for Heifer International.
Third and Fourth graders visit a local nursing home to sing and play games. Fourth graders lead the campus wide recycling programs and make Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches for the guests at H.O.P.E.
Fifth Graders care for the campus through a variety of projects. 6th, 7th and 8th graders participate in Buddies- paired with younger grade students, they learn what it takes to lead in a positive direction. Students Altar Serve for daily and funeral masses.
