Those who attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at Christ the King for the first time often comment that our liturgies are both reverent and alive. As a charismatic personal parish, our liturgies, like the rest of our ministries, are oriented to encourage growth in the Holy Spirit and the charismatic gifts that He wishes to provide. We have the permission of our bishop to exercise the charismatic gifts at certain points during the Mass. For more information, read about “Charismatic Prayer and the Mass.”
As the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council taught, all the faithful are called to “fully conscious, and active participation in liturgical celebrations…” (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 14). Nonetheless, many parishioners are needed to serve in specific liturgical ministries as well. For more information, read about our Music Ministry and Other Liturgy-Related Ministries.
In November 2011, the English translation of the Third Edition of the Roman Missal was promulgated for use at Masses in the United States. More information about that translation is available at the New Mass Translation page.
