My dear friends in Christ,

 

This year the the theme of  the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal A letter from Archbishop Gregory was mailed this past week to all previous donor to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal.  He is asking for continued support of the many important programs that help thousands in our archdiocese each year.  The goal for the 2017 appeal is $8,000,000 and the goal for our parish is $489,200.

 

Thank you for your support of Christ the King Cathedral and the Archdiocese of Atlanta. In just two years, we have gone from missing our goal by $20,000 to exceeding it by 20%.  The number of parishioners (more…)

 

My friends in Christ,

 

At the beginning of each year, we often think of ways we can grow closer to God.  For some, it may be deciding to go on a retreat.  If you have not been, this Lent we will host our 14th Christ renews His Parish (CRHP) Retreats.  CRHP has been a blessing to our parish.  More than 1,000 parishioners have attended and had their faith renewed. Our parish is alive and our ministries are thriving as a result. (more…)

My dear friends in Christ,

 

For the last few years I have shared a book with you at Christmas.  This year’s book, Resisting Happiness by Matthew Kelly, is one I believe will lead you to the change you may need in your life.

 

We still have a few copies available at the parish reception desk if you did not pick up your copy before Christmas.   (more…)

My Dear Friends in Christ,

 

Welcome! Today we gather on the holiest of days to celebrate the miracle of the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Receiving salvation from the Christ Child is truly a reason for joy.  It is with that spirit of joy that I welcome you to the Cathedral of Christ the King.  Whether it is your first Christmas with us or if celebrating Christmas Mass at the Cathedral is a tradition, I am glad you are here.

 

The world rejoices that the King of Kings has come.  As on that first Christmas, when Mary and Joseph welcomed the Christ Child into their family, we too can open our hearts and welcome the Christ Child into our lives.

 

It is my hope that through our Christmas Masses here at the Cathedral you will experience the joy and peace that only the Christ Child can bring.  May you receive a renewed faith throughout the Christmas season and may God grant you every blessing in the New Year.

 

Yours in Christ,

Monsignor Frank McNamee

Rector

My dear friends in Christ,

 

Hurricane Matthew has already brought devastation to Jamaica, Haiti, Cuba, and the Bahamas. As it bears down on the United States, particularly our own state of Georgia, we encourage all Catholic families to act immediately to aid with these tragic natural disasters. When a natural disaster occurs in the United States, electronic donations may be made to Catholic Charities USA (click here to donate).  When they occur in other countries, electronic donations may be made to Catholic Relief Services (click here to donate).  

Both agencies respond to immediate emergency needs for such necessities as water, food, shelter and medical care, as well as to the long-term need to rebuild and recover after widespread destruction.

Thank you in advance for your participation in these important efforts.  Please continue to pray for all those left in Matthew’s wake and all who remain in its path. God bless you and your family.

 

In Christ,

Monsignor Mac

My friends in Christ,

As we come to the half way point of Lent, it’s a good time to reflect upon where you are with the traditional Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  Last week during out parish mission, Fr. Bruce Maivelett, SJ, showed us how to develop our prayer lives using the time tested methods of Ignatian Spirituality.

This weekend, we have Deacons Bill Monahan, Steve Swope, Fred Molina, Fred Toca and Fr. Vic Galier visiting with us at all of the Masses to learn more about one of the hidden jewels of the Catholic Church, Catholic Relief Services. (more…)
