O Immaculate Virgin, mother of the true God and mother of the Church!

You, who revealed your clemency and your pity to all those who ask for your protection, hear the prayer that we address to you with filial trust, and present it to your Son Jesus, our sole Redeemer. Mother of Mercy, teacher of hidden and silent sacrifice, to you we dedicate on this day all our being and all our love. We also dedicate to you our life, our work, our joys, our infirmities, and our sorrows. Grant peace, justice, and prosperity to our people, for we entrust to your care all that we have and all that we are, our Lady and Mother. We wish to be entirely yours and to walk with you along the way of complete faithfulness to Jesus Christ and his Church: hold us always in your loving hand. Virgin of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas, we pray to you for all the bishops, that they may lead the faithful along paths of intense Christian life, of love and humble service of God and souls. Grant to our homes the grace of loving and respecting life in its beginnings, with the same love with which you conceived in your womb the life of the Son of God. Blessed Virgin Mary, protect our families, so that they may always be united, and bless the upbringing of our children. Thus, Most Holy Mother, with the peace of God in our conscience, with our hearts free from evil and hatred, we will be able to bring to all true joy and true peace, which come to us from your son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who with God the Father and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

Facts from the Past
Did you know…
Christ the King’s second pastor was Father John Mayer, who served previously as pastor of Immaculate Conception Church in Braidwood, Ill. Father Mayer arrived on the eve of the feast of Christ the King, which, in 1960, was celebrated in October. The new pastor was just in time for the first parish dance, which was held in the nearby firehouse. The men of the parish presented a fashion show as the evening’s entertainment.

What is "CRHP" or Christ Renews His Parish?
Christ Renews His Parish is designed to give both the individual and the parish community an opportunity for renewal and growth in spiritual life. As we grow in awareness of God's love and respond to His call, we grow together as a parish family. A History of Christ Renews His Parish: "CRHP" began as a "renewal" weekend at Holy Family Parish in Cleveland in 1969. The members at Holy Family found the enthusiasm and positive response to this initial weekend overwhelming. This process helped their faith community understand in a new and more alive way that Jesus Christ was its center. Now, some 30 years later, Holy Family has celebrated its 80th "renewal" weekend and over 3,000 men and women from their parish have participated. During the 1970's, news of "CRHP's" success at Holy Family motivated other parishes throughout the Cleveland Diocese to adopt the program. Through the 1980's and 90's "CRHP" spread to 750 parishes in 62 dioceses across 27 states and received the recommendation of the renewal office of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. Today, "CRHP" continues to promote the development of vibrant faith communities and full service parishes by transforming the hearts of committed believers. CRHP is about Renewal! "Christ Renews His Parish" is an effective spiritual renewal process, which calls parishioners to experience personal conversion and Christian community in the environment of their own parish. The secret of the "what" is its simplicity. The program is based on the basic Christian principles of evangelization, reconciliation, catechesis, initiation, formation, community, and personal vocation. As the program manual states: "However sincere and deep our initial commitment to our faith, it requires by its very nature, continuous renewal and deepening. It must be a moment-to-moment process of saying, "yes" to God." Christ Renews His Parish is Christ Centered. With Christ in the lead, our journey will go down the correct path. It is a program designed to bring members of a parish together in Christ. The emphasis during the weekend is on small group participation. The process is centered around witnessing by presenting team members. Discussion and sharing is enjoyed by all participants. "CRHP" is a response to the need that every follower of Christ has to experience "church" and to experience "being church" and finally, to experience "being church for others". The primary challenge is taking your next first step into the rest of your life in Christ. The weekend is that first step and He has his arms open to welcome you. We have two weekends a year at Christ the King parish: 1 for men and 1 for women.

What is CRHP? The "Christ Renews His Parish" (CRHP) program is a spiritual retreat experience which brings adult parishioners together in small groups in order to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and each other. It stresses a clear focus on the Gospel and provides a way to relax, unwind and reflect on our sometimes hectic lives. What happens during the weekend? The actual Renewal Weekend begins early Saturday and goes through Sunday mid-afternoon. It consists of small group participation, witnessing and sharing by previous members; exercises in the group process and community building; and sharing set in a scriptural and prayerful atmosphere. It also provides those attending with an opportunity for experiencing deep personal conversion through prayer and reflection. This experience would hopefully initiate a process of spiritual growth, Christian community building, good old fashioned fellowship and lay ministry formation. The weekend provides an opportunity for you to respond to a closer and deeper relationship with Christ. Who may attend? CRHP is open to all Christ the King, Sacred Heart and St. Pius X parishioners who are at least 18 years of age. When and where do the weekends take place? The weekends are conducted using the Christ the King Early Learning Academy classrooms and gymnasium. How long do the weekends last? A typical weekend begins at 8:00 A.M. on Saturday and will end by 4:00 P.M. on Sunday. Where do I sleep? The parish will provide cots for you to sleep on in a designated area of the Early Learning Academy. You bring your own bedding. What about food? Meals are provided by previous CRHP groups and members of the parish. There will be opportunities during the weekend for regular breaks for coffee, soft drinks and snacks. If you have a special diet, please let us know when you register so we will be able to provide for your needs. You will find that you will eat extremely well. What should I wear? Casual and comfortable clothing is appropriate and highly encouraged. The key is to be relaxed. What about the sacraments? An opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Penance occurs on Saturday evening and we celebrate Mass together Sunday afternoon. Still have questions? Please contact: Roberta Beckman at or Fr. Peter Jarosz at

October 25, 2009 On behalf of Fr. Bob, Fr. Guiney, and all the priests who served here at Christ the King over the past fifty years, we thank you for the many ways you enriched our ministry and strengthened our priesthood. May we live by grace, journey in hope, and celebrate our faith in Christ our King. Fr. Peter Jarosz

Go your way; your faith has saved you.
This is what Jesus said to Bartimaeus, I ask go where? Every step we take as Catholics is important to the life and growth of your household and the parish community. Where we go and what we do makes a difference, right? Jesus told the man go your way and what did he do—he followed Jesus—Bartimaeus wanted to follow Jesus and learn from Him. who can we learn form in our lives? Do we have a mentor , or someone we look up to for advice. How many times have we returned to an old familiar path after an encounter with Christ? We encounter Christ truly present to us in the holy Eucharist, each week or day we gather as a parish family. If following Jesus means taking a new direction, getting involved in a new ministry, or changing careers or friends, we often settle back into the same routines as before. Following Jesus is a life changing adventure! This week describe a time when you changed directions in your life because of an encounter with Christ. Even after 20 years of priesthood and my 8th year of service as Pastor at CTK, I am still looking for the direction of Christ the High Priest to guide me as I take care of the temporal and spiritual welfare of this community. This is quite an adventure, unlike Bartimaeus’ adventure with Jesus. Thank you for the many ways our parishioners share their time, talent and treasure. Let us pray that all the parish family will respond and give back to God for what He has given to us! Let’s celebrate our Jubilee year together, with the grace of God. Reserve the date for Mass with Bishop Peter on November 1st at Noon, reception to follow. The colors for our Anniversary Mass will be burgundy, gold and white, try to wear a little splash of these colors. In Christ, Fr. Jarosz

Come Early, Leave Late
During these busy days of Fall, set your watch 10 minutes earlier, to get to Mass on time. Its important that we are all there to hear the Word of God. Also, please kindly leave mass when the priest reaches the narthex doors, during the closing song. Thank you for all you do at mass, to make it a prayerful experience for all. It is so nice to hear everyone singing and using their song books. Keep up the good work! Fr. Peter Jarosz

Sacristan Ministry: The Liturgical “Behind the Scenes” Note Saturday Date Change
It takes much “behind-the-scenes” work to ensure our liturgies are smooth and prayerful. One of the ministries that is vital to this is the ministry of the Sacristan. We are thankful to all who have helped fill this ministry in the past: Ditas and Arsenio Alzona, June Carlson, Matt Novak, Andy Tuszynski, and Mary Nicholas. Their continued service to the parish is greatly appreciated. Working behind the scenes, sacristans prepare the worship space before and after each liturgy. A sacristan typically arrives 20-30 minutes before mass and readies the church by performing a variety of duties, from lighting candles and preparing for baptisms, verifying that lectors, altar servers, and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion are present. Sacristans remain after the liturgy to ready the church for the next celebration. Though most liturgical ministries serve the assembly, the role of the Sacristan is to minister to the presider and deepen your knowledge of the Catholic traditions, while helping to ensure that the liturgy proceeds smoothly. We are currently in need of more sacristans here at Christ the King, for weekday and weekend masses. If you or anyone you know is interested in this ministry, please come to our next training session for new and existing sacristans on Saturday, October 31, at 11:00am. If you have any questions, please call Bill Runge at 630.396.6075, email him at, or stop by after any weekend mass.

This Sunday we celebrate the men who have exercised a unique stewardship of their lives by entrusting them to the Lord as priests. It is an opportunity for Catholics to thank, affirm and share their love and support for priests. Started by the Worldwide Marriage Encounter community, it is joined with the Serra Club’s celebration of Priesthood Sunday today. Throughout this year, dedicated as the Year for Priests, we can pray for vocations, and encourage those who might respond to this unique call. We can also respond to our own baptismal call by working collaboratively with our priests to build up he Kingdom of God.

A full financial report will be made available to the Parish by early November. The next two Finance meetings are scheduled for November 11th and December 9th.
