From Father's Desk
Pope Pius XI instituted the Feast of Christ the King in his encyclical letter Quas primas of 1925, in response to growing secularism  and in the context of the unresolved Roman Question.
According to Cyril of Alexandria, “Christ has dominion over all creatures ...by essence and by nature.” His kingship is founded upon the hypostatic union. “... The Word of God, as consubstantial with the Father, has all things in common with him, and therefore has necessarily supreme and absolute dominion over all things created.”
“From this it follows that to Christ angels and men are subject. Christ is also King by acquired, as well as by natural right, for He is our Redeemer...." We are no longer our own property, for Christ has purchased us “with a great price”; our very bodies are the “members of Christ.” A third ground of sovereignty is that God bestowed upon Christ the nations of the world as His special possession and dominion. “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me." (Matthew 28:18)
The feast has an eschatological dimension pointing to the end of time when the kingdom of Jesus will be established in all its fullness to the ends of the earth. It also leads into Advent, when the Church commemorates the arrival of the newborn king.

Year of Prayer for Priestly Vocations
PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
God, our Father, You made each of us to use our gifts in the Body of Christ. We ask that you inspire those in our Diocese whom you are calling to the priesthood to courageously follow Your will. Send laborers into Your great harvest so that the Gospel is preached, the poor are served with love, the suffering are comforted, and your people are strengthened by the sacraments. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Please personally encourage men to consider a vocation to the priesthood.
2017 Diocesan Parish Annual Appeal
If you have not made a donation or pledge, please prayerfully consider doing so. Our parish makes up the difference if our goal is not met. 93.28% of our goal ($29,290.00) has been collected for the Diocesan Parish Annual Appeal. Any funds over our goal ($31,400.00) will be used for scholarships for the schoolchildren. (November 8, 2017 per www.covdio.org)

Prayer Blanket Ministry
Early this summer as our news across the country continued to be filled with our police men and woman being shot at, injured or killed. Teresa Winkler of our Prayer Blanket Ministry wanted to do something for our Taylor Mill Police Force. So after purchasing the material, Debbie Chiarelli, also of the Prayer Blanket Ministry, volunteered to embroider all the names and ranks of all the men and woman on the Taylor Mill Police force and 3 Kenton County Sheriffs onto the prayer blanket. The Prayer Blanket Ministry then met last week to assemble the Prayer Blankets making them with prayers for the men and woman who serve our city. Father Cushing then blessed the blankets and they were delivered to the Taylor Mill Police Department. The blankets were beautiful when completed.
Please continue prayer, not only for the Taylor Mill Police force, but for the safety of all of our men and woman who serve and protect us.
