Mass Times

Sunday and Holy Day Mass obligation restored

Beginning Pentecost weekend, May 22-23, 2021, Bishop Earl Boyea has restored the obligation of the faithful in the Diocese of Lansing to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation. You may read more about his decision and watch a video from Bishop Boyea by clicking here.

To welcome everyone back to Mass, the Diocese of Lansing provided candles blessed by Bishop Boyea for each household of each parish in the diocese. If you are a CTK parishioner who was not able to pick up your candle and prayer card Pentecost weekend, you may pick it up in the St. John Paul the Great Room any time that the Church is open, except when Confessions are being heard.

We have recently updated our COVID-related policies at Christ the King. Click here for more information.
