Family Catechism on Sunday

Don’t forget that it’s the first Sunday of the month next weekend and so we have Family Catechism at Christ the King at our usual times of 10.30 for under 8s, 11.00 for under 16s and 11.30 for adults.  There’s tea, coffee and biscuits in the hall while you’re waiting and a chance for a chat.

From the news sheet 14th April

The Latin Mass at Christ the King will take place as usual at 8.30 am on Easter Sunday. It will be sung by Director of Music Matthew Schellhorn. Do join us for an inspiring and uplifting celebration of the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

By the kind agreement of Fr Patrick Hutton, Parish Priest of Christ the King, the collection money from the Latin Mass on Easter Sunday will go to support the work of the FSSP Bedford Apostolate. Please be generous in supporting the sterling work the FSSP priests are doing among us.

If you want to make a personal gift to the FSSP priests, then please do so outside of the collections, making it clear that it is for their personal use. Thank you.

Don’t miss out on the social event of the year! After last year’s success, caller Mick Wooldridge returns to Christ the King on Friday 10th May at 7.30 pm. There will be a bar and a fancy dress competition as well as lots of dancing. Don’t worry if you have never been to a barn dance before, Mick will talk you through the steps. Tickets are now on sale from Barbara Kay in the hall after Mass at £5 for adults, £3 for under 12s.

Catechism on Sunday – Please note change of times

Catechism takes place in the Patrick Donegan Room at Christ the King this Sunday 7 April. Due to unforeseen circumstances the Mass will be a Low Mass rather than Sung, so it has been suggested that, as a one-off, we start catechism 30 minutes earlier as follows:


8:30 am   Low Mass followed by Confessions

10 am   Catechism (for under-8s)

10:30 am   Catechism (for under-16s)

11 am   Presentation for adults (16+)

11:30 am   Close

This will enable those who wish to do so, to attend the parish meeting which follows at 11.45 am in the church hall.

Hope to see you there!
