Music at Christ the King
One of the opportunities our parish offers is ministry through music. There are two singing choirs and two hand bells ensembles whose primary goals are to provide musical leadership in the worship services and to instill in the participants an appreciation of the musical heritage of the Church. Through our music program, we seek to teach the importance of music in the Catholic liturgy. Choir members are trained in the liturgy of this parish church. They become familiar with the enduring hymns of the church and they learn ecclesiastical choral and instrumental music. Therefore, lend your talents to the choirs and instrumental ensembles of Christ the King no matter what your age or ability. You may register for any choir by calling (214) 365-1244 and leave your name, the group you plan to join, and the telephone number.
