Feast of Christ the King
Dear Friends,
On the one hand, we have an ever increasing knowledge of the size, extent and complexity of our universe. Indeed, the size and expanse of the universe is awesome and overwhelming – too much for our limited imagination to comprehend. We believe that Jesus Christ is the King and Lord of this universe.

We celebrate our faith that Jesus is Lord and King; and at the same time we commit ourselves to make Jesus more the Lord of our own lives and of our own world.
