Prayer Ministries

"Prayer is the raising of one's mind and heart to God" (St. John Damascene).

At Christ the King we understand the extreme importance of fostering a deep and personal relationship with God through individual and communal prayer.  In order to become true disciples of Christ we must first know Christ.  We also acknowledge the centrality of prayer in everything we do as a community.  Our intellectual learning, service, and fellowship must be rooted in a life of prayer.

We offer many opportunities for prayer outside our daily Masses, and encourage all our parishioners to find time each day to lift their hearts to God.

Eucharistic Adoration

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is an opportunity for all parishioners to spend time in the presence of our Lord, dwelling in God’s love, praying for the needs of family, friends, our parish community, and the entire People of God.

Adoration is available every Friday at Christ the King.  Exposition begins at 9:00 am following the morning Mass and ends with benediction at 12 noon.

Regular adorers commit to praying in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament either weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly.  Schedules are created to ensure that there are at least two parishioners scheduled for each time slot.  If you would like to commit to a half-hour or hour time slot, please contact Fr. Geoff.

Prayer Line

Regular prayer warriors join a long standing, extensive prayer chain network within our parish through phone calls or email. If you would like to volunteer or add a name to our prayer list, please contact the rectory offices.

Respect Life Rosary

Parishioners meet in the Holy Cross Chapel every Monday at 7:30 pm to pray the rosary together.  This rosary is offered especially to remember the sanctity of human life.

Vocation Chalice

Parishioners volunteer to take a special chalice home for one week to pray for an increase of all vocations within the Church.  We ask that all parishioners pray that all may hear the gentle whisper of God and the urging of the Spirit as we discern how God has created us to serve and love whether that be in religious life, the priesthood, marriage, or the single vocation.  Please contact the parish office if you would like to volunteer for this ministry.
