My friends in Christ,
This is an exciting time for Christ the King! The Hyland Center is no longer a vision, as it was for over 20 years, but a reality. We had our first concrete pour last Friday and will have 6 additional pours over the next several weeks. The pours will all begin early in the morning and will not affect Masses or ministry events, though we do appreciate the flexibility of our school and neighborhood families during those times.
This weekend in my homily, I shared a story about my experience at a Life Teen night, watching over 150 teens deep in prayer during adoration and listening to witness talks from their peers. These teens could have been anywhere else on a Sunday night, but they were here.
This is what the Hyland Center is all about -
allowing us the space to provide for our future and prepare disciples who respond to God's call to serve others.
If you missed my homily, I invite you to watch it below:
As I mentioned in my homily, i
n order to receive the grant from the Lettie Pate Evans Foundation, we need to reach our fundraising goal of $30 million by December 1st.
We started this weekend with $29 million in gifts in pledges. I am happy to share that in just the last few days we have received
in new gifts and pledges.
I encourage you to review the new renderings of the Hyland Center below and envision yourself in this space and make a pledge that will help us prepare for our future.
Every contribution helps.
Yours in Christ,

The East Wesley Lawn above the gymnasium is half the size of our current green-space and will serve as an area for outdoor classrooms and special events. The corridors inside the building are lined with informal gathering spaces, soft seating for small groups, and large windows overlooking the lawn.
The new Hyland Center gymnasium will be the largest multi-use space on campus and will accommodate activities for our parish and school. In addition to Mass, especially at Christmas and Easter, the new gymnasium will be used for basketball, volleyball, assemblies, guest speakers, and much more!
A new multipurpose space will replace the previous Hyland Center meeting room with advanced technology and an updated prep kitchen for school and parish meetings, retreats, 20/30 Somethings events, and EDGE.
In addition to 2 state-of-the-art science labs, the Hyland Center will have 8 flexible classrooms, music room, and an art room / maker space to help us address the spiritual, educational, and social needs of our growing campus.
We will continue to keep you updated of the progress of the construction and our capital campaign.
