Donation Opportunities

"As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace." (1 Peter 4:10).

As Christ's missionary disciples we must respond to our call to be good stewards of the resources the Lord has entrusted with us. A Christian steward is someone who receives God's gifts gratefully, develops them with responsibility and accountability, shares them generously with others, and returns them to the Lord with increase. This means visibly gifting the fruits of our time, talent, and treasure to make God the number one priority in our lives.

To assist you in managing your visible treasure, the Parish of Christ the King provides parishioners with various charitable giving options to financially support our ministries

The Parish of Christ the King is a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity, and qualifying donations are tax deductible.

We will be happy to provide you with donation envelopes to help you prepare your check or cash contribution in advance of coming to the Sunday Mass.
