Christ the King School Celebrates Catholic Schools Week!

Christ the King School celebrated National Catholic Schools Week, a special week highlighting the importance of being a student in a Catholic School. Students shared with the parish at the beginning of the week that, "it is very important to form the hearts and souls of children to introduce us early and often to the love of God."

Fr. Erik Visits with Students

Fr. Erik stopped by classrooms to visit with students. He surprised them with a Religion test asking them some important questions like, what does it mean to be Christian and what does it mean to be Catholic? Students were eager to answer his questions. He wrapped up by sharing with students that Jesus gives us a church to help us live. He also gave the students a blessing before heading to the next classroom.
