The Final Steps!

The last leg of the mission is upon us!

This week, the church is finally receiving the packages in the Philippines!

Our goal is to help them with final costs of receiving the boxes out of customs, and to help them celebrate with a fun Christmas party where all of the children will receive their gifts!  Our Goal is $600.  CTK will be providing this donation this week through Western Union.  Any additional funds received above and beyond the goal will go toward helping them organize an amazing Christmas party!

CLICK HERE to learn more about this mission project.


Join us on Tuesdays throughout the season of Advent as we celebrate a short 30-Minute Advent Mass with Eucharist.  We will start each week with a Christmas Carol Sing-Along led by our Music Director Chris Losee.  Each week we will have a special family activity, a church event where everyone in the church is invited to attend, and a fun family meal together.  We will start by decorating the church, then enjoying a Christmas Movie, and finally lighting up the outdoor tree with music, hot cocoa, and homemade Christmas cookies made by our CTK families!  We hope you will take the time to enjoy these simple breaks in the season to come together to celebrate the True Reason for the Season!
