Welcome to Christ The King!

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ we want to welcome you to His Church

As a Catholic parish, we offer many opportunities to know, love and serve God and our neighbor within and outside the parish community.  With every ministry within the church and school we are intentional about putting into practice the love of God and neighbor.  We believe that our Lord Jesus, our patron under the title of Christ the King, reigns in our hearts, inspires our minds and intercedes for us at the right hand of the Father. We have implemented the Safe Environment program where everyone can feel protected, from the youngest to the most elderly. All our leaders, employees and key volunteers have to go through the criminal background check and the Recognize, Respond, Report Training for Colorado’s Mandatory Reporters course presented on behalf of the Colorado Department of Human Services.

Our Parish and School Staff and dedicated parishioners are here to assist you and to offer you many opportunities to deepen your relationship with God and share your time, talent and treasure in the service of God and His people because as the Scripture says “there is more happiness in giving than in receiving” (Acts 20:35). Each one of us has been endowed by God with gifts that we ought to share. “Nobody is so poor he has nothing to give, and nobody is so rich he has nothing to receive”— Pope John Paul II.

We welcome you to our church community and ask that you register by submitting the Parish Registration Form below.

We are trying to grow as a stewardship community and contribute to the work of God in the world today.   In this way, we ourselves grow in faith, hope and love accomplishing God’s will.

If you have any questions about the church or how you can get involved, feel free to call the office at 303-388-1643. Please, browse through our various ministries below and don’t forget to sign up for Flocknote in order to stay informed!

Welcome and God bless you on your journey of faith with our church community.

God’s peace, love and prayers,

Father Grzegorz (Gregory) Cioch, Church and School Staff and friendly parishioners;)

Fr Grzegorz (Gregory) Cioch CIRCLE.png

Fr. Grzegorz

Cioch

Pastor

+ About Father Grzegorz

My name is Father Grzegorz Cioch but I you will be happy to hear that I go by Fr. Gregory. I was born and raised in Krakow, Poland. My vocation and coming to Denver has been inspired by St. John Paul II, who before becoming the pope was my archbishop. In 1994, after the second year of formation in the Seminary of the Krakow Archdiocese, I volunteered to come to America and was accepted to the Denver Archdiocese, where I was ordained in the year 2000 and fruitfully served in variety of assignments and ministries until my appointment as the Rector of the American Seminary in Poland where I spend the last four years. Being back there with my mother (and my two sisters and their families) after my father's death was a nice “perk" however I have missed being a pastor in the dynamic Denver Archdiocese and was happy to come back!

In God's providence, my coming home happened in the exact time that you needed the new pastor. I'm eager not only to fill the shoes but to share my life of faith with you, paraphrasing the words of St. Augustine “with you I'm a Christian, for you I'm a pastor.” I'm looking forward to meet and to know you. I have already discovered that I have met some of you in the past. Maybe recalling my footsteps will help you to know me better and remember where and when our paths might have crossed.

After my ordination in the year 2000, I was the Parochial Vicar at the Risen Christ Parish and the Chaplain of the Bishop Machebauf High School in Denver. In 2002, I became the administrator and later pastor of the Our Lady of the Mountains Parish in Estes Park. From June 2009 to 2014 I was the pastor of the Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Fort Collins. In addition to the pastoral responsibilities, from December 2007 to June 2014, I served as a Dean, a member of the Priests Council and the Personnel Board. Moreover I had helped as a mentor, supervisor and counselor of the seminarians, newly ordained priests and the new pastors. I was also a chaplain of the Knights of Columbus, the Serra Club, the firefighters and the police.

I am a proud graduate of the "Good Leaders Good Shepherds" program by the Catholic Leadership Institute and the School of Evangelization by the Evangelization Committee of the Polish Conference of Bishops. In the spring of 2011 I was asked to discern joining the seminary staff of my alma mater what resulted in the doctoral studies at the Saint John Paul II Pontifical University in Krakow, the heir of the theological department of the prestigious Jagielonian University est. way back in 1364, where I received the ecclesiastical licentiate degree in theology in the specialization of the liturgy focusing on the homiletics and religious communication.

I hope and pray that the rich experience and education will allow me to serve you well. I count on your prayers and support.

Fr. Witold Kaczmarzyk

Parochial Vicar

+ABOUT FATHER WITOLD

My name is Father Witold Kaczmarzyk and I was born in Ostrow Wielkopolski, Poland. Right after high school, I became a student of the faculty of physics at Warsaw University of Technology in Poland, which is like MIT in Boston, MA. While studying in Warsaw, I experienced my conversion by reading the Bible, praying, and attending meetings where I could talk with other students about my faith. Due to them, my vocation "came to the surface" and I made a decision to study theology and develop my faith more seriously. I told my parents that I wanted to drop out of the university and start to study theology. They were surprised, but they respected my decision. In May 2012, I made a decision that I would enter a seminary in my home diocese – the Diocese of Kalisz, Poland. In July 2012, I walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain - French route (Way of St. James) - almost 500 miles on foot in one month. It was a very deep spiritual experience. In September, I entered the Major Seminary in Kalisz, and I started to study philosophy.
I've always liked sports and have kept myself in shape. Therefore, together with a group of three seminarians we started to train for long-distance running. Within two years, as a seminarian, I have completed five major marathons (26.2 miles) in Poland. For this achievement, I received the Crown of Polish Marathons. I love traveling, and so far, I have visited 17 countries round the world. In 2014, I transferred to SS. Cyril & Methodius Seminary in Krakow, which is preparing seminarians from Poland to come to its campus in the U.S.A. at Orchard Lake, MI (The same seminary Fr. Grzegorz graduated from and recentely worked for; that's where i met him for the first time). Prior to coming to the USA, I received a scholarship from the EPPC (Ethics and Public Policy Center), Washington, D. C.’s premier institute dedicated to applying the Judeo-Christian moral tradition to critical issues of public policy. George Weigel was one of the instructors. Each year’s seminar class includes 10-12 North American students and 20-25 students from Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Lithuania, Ukraine and other new democracies. I was chosen as the only seminarian from Europe. In 2016, I became a seminarian of the Archdiocese of Denver. Meanwhile, in the summer 2016 I was a teacher of Totus Tuus summer program as my assignment in our archdiocese. In the Summer 2017, I helped the Catholic Charities, and in 2018 I was sent by the archbishop to the Cathedral Basilica in Denver as my diaconal internship. In May 2019, I was ordained in Denver and assigned to Christ the King parish in Denver as parochial vicar. I hope that my studies and experience will help me to serve you as much as possible. I’m thrilled to be a part of OUR parish. Pray for me so I would do my best!

Deacon David Mumby

Deacon

+ About Deacon David

My name is Deacon David Mumby, and I was born at Memorial Hospital in South Bend, Indiana to the parents of Dave and Angela Mumby. As a child I attended St. Hedwig Catholic School and Parish in South Bend Indiana from Kindergarten through 4th Grade and in 5th Grade I attended St. Patrick’s School and Parish in South Bend. From 6th Grade we moved to the city of Mishawaka, Indiana where I attended Mary Phillips Grade School, Main Jr. High School, and my Freshman year I attended Mishawaka High School. The summer after my Freshman year my family and I moved to Dos Palos, California and I graduated from Dos Palos High School in 1975. Prior to my senior year, I decided to use the Delayed Enlistment Program, and joined the US Navy in December of 1975. I completed Navy Basic Training at San Diego, California and then went to Groton, Connecticut for my Basic Submarine School. I was then assigned to the USS Plunger SSN 595, a fast attack submarine which was based in San Diego, California. While serving on the USS Plunger, I was sent to Store Keeper A School in Meridian, Mississippi.

While at the Store Keeper A School, we learned all aspects of Submarine Supply. After leaving the Navy in 1980, I returned home to help my father run our family owned Hardware Store “Mumby Hardware Inc” in Dos Palos, California. My wife Mishelle and I met while working on our local Volunteer Ambulance Company and we both attended Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Dos Palos. We were married on January 11, 1986 and we have two grown children, Michael Lawrence and Sarah Angela (Mumby) McCall. Michael and Natalie have two children, Charolette and Sydney and Sarah, who married Dustin, have one child, Nevaeh.

Mishelle and I began teaching CCD early in our married life and Mishelle was the Director of Religious Education and I taught Sacramental Preparation including Confirmation. Our Diocese of Fresno did not have a Diaconate Formation Program until our Bishop John Steinbock instuted the New Wine Program, our prerequisite program for Diaconate Formation. I was Ordained a Deacon, January, 11, 2003 for the Diocese of Fresno, California. In September of 2013 Mishelle and I moved to Aurora, Colorado, and was assigned to Christ the King Catholic Church.

+ About Deacon Jim

Greetings in the Lord! I go by the moniker of Deacon Jim. I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. In a small near west suburb called Westchester and I and my family (Mom and Dad, Dottie and Jim and my brother Ben) attended Divine Providence parish. I lived in Westchester through my high school and university years. I attended Western Illinois University.

I had thoughts of considering a priestly vocation as a boy and teenager like most boys did of my era but it never captured my attention too long.

My first job I started as a salesman in the printing ink industry and soon moved over to selling commercial printing in the Chicago area. And that’s how I met my wife June. About a year or so after we met we married, June grew up in a suburb called Hinsdale.

We moved to Florida as a young married couple and started a commercial printing and marketing corporation. We had the company for 17 years. Our three daughters were born in south Florida and are now at three different universities.

While owning the printing and marketing company I started to hear a call to the permanent Diaconate. I thought; I have a good job, nice home, married and children, why do I feel something is missing. I met with a spiritual director for about a year or so and then I put in my application to the Diocese of Palm Beach.

The Formation program, at that time was four and a half years. I can tell you that at times, it flew by but I still remember some classes that it seemed 5 minutes lasted an hour. I did a lot of reading before I put in my application. Thomas Merton’s, Seven Storey Mountain was one of the most influential books I read at the time besides scripture. I’m a big fan of Thomas Merton.

I came to Denver September of 2018, by way of excepting a position with The Catholic Foundation. I am the Director of Parish Gift Planning. My wife and I have been coming to Colorado for visits for years, so it was an easy decision to make the move to Denver. I was ordained on 9/17/11. It’s been a marvelous gift. I’ve had experiences and opportunities I could have never imagined. It is my joy to be a servant of God and is Church. I look forward to making your parish, Christ the King my parish home.

PARISH Faith Formation

FF 2.jpg

Encountering Christ As A Family

Helping you live your family’s mission to know, love, and serve God.

“The family is the primary school in which saints are formed . . . God created the family to be a reflection of the communion of life and love that exists within the Trinity.  The union of a husband and wife allows them to participate in God’s creative act, and from their love comes children . . .

The Second Vatican Council describes parents as being the primary teachers of the faith for their children . . . where their children meet Christ . . . This also means that parents are the principal teachers who prepare their children to receive the sacraments . . .” 
— Saints Among Us, Pastoral Letter, Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila, 5/14/15, pp. 13-14

Family Faith Formation

Our parish family faith formation program open to parishioners of Christ the King, is a family-based weekly program of faith formation and sacrament preparation taught by parents to their children at home with monthly support classes at the Church for parents and children in grades 1-8, in their respective classes.  Preschool and kindergarten materials are available for home-study only.  Materials are distributed in September and collected for review twice a year, winter and spring.  Review of preschool and kindergarten materials is optional.

The norm of the Archdiocese of Denver is for children to receive the Sacrament of 1st Reconciliation in 2nd grade, and the Sacraments of Confirmation and 1st Holy Communion in 3rd grade at the same Mass.  Children in grades 4-8 may also receive these sacraments through Family Faith Formation.  Unbaptized children ages 7 and older are also welcome.  For baptism of a child under the age of 7 call the parish office.

This program, unique with its flexible schedule, is designed for parents who wish to more intentionally teach their children the faith and help them live it well before, during, and after their initial reception of sacraments. We believe that the stronger the parent/child engagement in the faith, the more effectively children will mature into authentic disciples of Jesus Christ.

“Train the young in the way they should go; even when old, they will not swerve from it.”
— Proverbs 22:6

Our Goal

The goal of Family Faith Formation is to help families deepen their love for Jesus Christ through encountering Him in the sacramental life of the Church, in family prayer, in the Truths of our Catholic Faith, and in a communion of life and love with God and neighbor.

“Therefore, you shall love the LORD, your God, with your whole heart, and with your whole being, and with your whole strength. Take to heart these words which I command you today. Keep repeating them to your children. Recite them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you get up.”
— Deuteronomy 6:5-7

OUTLINE & SCHEDULE

The monthly support class for parents and children in grades 1-8 meet on Sunday after the Noon Mass from 1:15-2:45pm:

We only send one email/text a week, along with occasional reminders for Parish events, Holy Days of Obligation and other information to help you grow in your faith! You can also choose to receive updates from any of our ministries or parish groups.

Weekly Bulletins

All of the same information included in our weekly Flocknote, and more, can be found in our weekly bulletin!

Grab one at Mass or read our most recent bulletin online today!
