A Message from the Pastor

Traditional Marriage-the law of nature: The late Cardinal Francis George succinctly summed up why the Church cares about all marriages. “It might be good to put aside any religious teaching and any state laws and start from scratch, from nature itself, when talking about marriage. Marriage existed before Christ called together his first disciples 2,000 years ago and well before the United States of America was formed (236) years ago. Neither Church nor state invented marriage, and neither can change its nature. Marriage exists because human nature comes in two complementary sexes: male and female. The sexual union of a man and woman is called the marital act because the two become physically one in a way that is impossible between two men or two women. Whatever a homosexual union might be or represent, it is not physically marital. Gender is inextricably bound up with physical sexual identity; and ‘gender-free marriage’ is a contradiction in terms, like a square circle”... Until recently, this was the universal definition of marriage by state or by religion. Sweet Corn Festival (next Saturday) We begin celebrating our ‘Bigger than Ever” Sweet Corn Festival next Saturday ( 10:00 am-10:00pm). Adults don’t miss the Friday night special (6:30-7:30) Msgr Frank’s Stand-up Comedy Hour followed by Gina Gedler band—Pizza and drinks—-fun and relaxing. Bring a neighbor or a friend!

Welcome Chuckie Geilenfeld

Left to right: Addison, Kennedy, Chuckie, Cristy, and Nile When I was offered the position to become the new Principal at Christ the King School I was overtaken with joy. This opportunity is a true blessing for my family and me. Since joining the team here at Christ the King I am very impressed with our passionate, and knowledgeable staff, who have dedicated their time over the summer to create the best faith based learning environment for our students and families. I have been in education for 13 years have never felt more welcome and supported than I have since I started here in June. I look forward to getting to know our families, as they are one of the most vital parts of having a great school. Having committed, dedicated, and caring parents and families is a big reason Christ the King School is what it is today. Together we get to share in our children’s love and passion for learning and excitement for experiencing new things. I am proud to have all of you as part of our school family. Before joining Christ the King School I taught high school industrial technology. I taught at Des Moines Lincoln last year and Urbandale the 8 years prior. I have coached baseball, track, bowling, and cross country. Before moving to Des Moines I spent two years as a special education associate in Iowa City. I am proud to say I served in the Iowa Air National Guard from 2002 – 2008. My wife Cristy and I are both from Oelwein, Iowa, which is in the NE part of the state. Cristy started at Principal Financial when we first moved to Des Moines in 2005 and has worked there since. Our family keeps us busy and on our toes, Addison, 14, Kennedy 5, and Nile 2. Faith is a big part of our lives. We’ve been members at St. Francis of Assisi since moving to Urbandale in 2008. Cristy and I are involved in Christian Family Movement, with 9 other couples and meet once a month to share our faith and learn from each other. We have both gone through CRHP at St. Francis, participated in a CRHP outreach to Winterset, and I am currently the spiritual director for CRHP team 35 at St. Francis. I also enjoy serving the Eucharist at mass, and taking communion to the homebound. I look forward to meeting each of our school and parish families. If you have ideas of how to make our school grow and be more impactful for our students I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you for all you do to make our school great. Make it a great day!

Now you can read G.K. Chesterton's epic poem about that battle in the book aptly titled, Lepanto (00018). Lepanto is not only one of G.K. Chesterton's finest poems, it is one of the finest poems in the English language. This book brings together the poem, the historical background of the battle, and a discussion of the battle's historical consequences, as well as additional commentaries and essays by Chesteron himself. It is a fascinating blend of literature, history, religion and romance. You can check out Lepanto from our parish library before or after weekend Masses.

Novenario de 54 dias. Antes de la misa de 3pm vamos a rezar el Rosario. Esta Novena termina el 7 de Octubre. La intencion es de orar por: “La Paz, la vida Humana y la Libertad de Religiosa” Oracion: Señor! ¿Me has abandonado? Me siento desmoralizado y cansado de sufrir. No deseo hablar con nadie: todo el mundo me molesta, no tengo ganas de rezar. Pero sé que no soy el único que sufre y pienso en tantos otros enfermos, pobres y abandonados que están peor que yo.Ayúdame a no quejarme innecesariamente, a no ser egoísta y a no sentirme incomprendido. Concédeme la paz cuando no puedo dormir por las noches. Haz que vea tu rostro en quienes me visitan, que oiga tu voz en sus voces y que sienta tus manos en las suyas. Concédeme que sepa agradecer todas sus atenciones y cuidados. Quédate siempre a mi lado, y ayúdame a darme cuenta que me miras como miraste a Jesús en la Cruz. Y ahora me dirijo a Ti con las palabras que nos enseñó Jesucristo: Padre nuestro...Amén. Christ the King
