Girls on the Run Spring season will begin in February! Online Registration is now open. Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based on positive youth development for girls in grades third through fifth. We teach life skills through interactive lessons and running games. The sessions are embedded with a self-esteem enhancing curriculum and uplifting workouts in preparation for the 5K running event. The benefits of the program include a stronger sense of identity, a greater acceptance of self, a healthier body image, and an appreciation of being part of a positive team.

BRICKS 4 KIDZ CAMP
RICE BOWL COLLECTION
Dear Parents and Families of CTK School,
This past Saturday morning, Fr. Paul sent a note (see below) to the entire parish with a reminder that Lent gets underway this week with Ash Wednesday. He invited each family in the parish to enter into the spirit of Lent by partaking in the Rice Bowl initiative. Both I and Father Paul will be in all the classrooms sometime this week to explain the Rice Bowl project to all the young people. Making use of the Rice Bowl during Lent is one of the best ways to draw your whole family closer to Jesus by way of the tried and true Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and alms-giving. And while we make use of the Rice Bowl, not only do we draw closer to Jesus spiritually, we draw closer to Jesus who lives in the people who are the most vulnerable and hungry in the world. So if your children come home with a Rice Bowl (and/or you picked one up when you were at Mass last weekend), please make use of it so together, your family and our larger parish family can change lives this Lent. Thank you!
In Christ’s abundant love,
- Deacon Tim
Dear Christ the King family & friends of the Cathedral ...
Lent gets started with Ash Wednesday this coming week. We have many ways planned for you to make this one of your best Lent's ever.
Today I am inviting you to participate in the Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl, which has been a staple here at the Cathedral for many years. The beauty of the Rice Bowl is that it can engage the entire family in the three pillars that make up Lenten Spirituality - Prayer, Fasting, and Alms-giving.
Jesus calls us to draw near to Him; to recognize that Jesus is the only one who has the power to free us from the chains of sin that prevent us from being everything God created us to be. But he also reminds us that we can find Him present in the least among us. By using the Rice Bowls, we can feed Jesus himself as we pray, fast and give alms so that others may have food to sustain them.
CLICK HERE to hear Cardinal Timothy Dolan's great perspective on the Lenten Journey we are about to begin. Rice Bowls will be available at all the entrances of the Cathedral when you come to Mass this weekend. Please take one and allow your family to feed Jesus; the same Jesus who laid down his life so that we could be fed the Bread of Life.
Your brother in Christ,
