Pajama Project 2015
We will be collecting for distribution new, unwrapped pajamas for boys and girls
less fortunate in our area. The PJ’s will be given to the children before Christmas
so they will have warm pajamas for the holidays.
A box is available in the gathering
space of the church to receive donations. Final pick up will be Sunday,
Last year Christ the King parishioners had a wonderful response
with their donations to this project. Let’s have another great year.
Please consider joining one (or both) of our choirs. No auditions are held and the
only requirement is to enjoy singing.
The Traditional Choir welcomes all new members and is in particular need of men.
The Joyful Praise Choir is open to anyone from 7th grade through adult.
