SIOUX CENTER, Iowa -- Christ the King Catholic Church is hosting a special gathering to celebrate the kick-off to its upcoming capital campaign.
At 11 a.m. Sunday, a bilingual Mass will be held at Terrace View Event Center -- the congregation no longer fits in the church -- located at 230 St. Andrews Way, to formally start a capital campaign for a new church.
The campaign is called "Coming Together... in serving Christ our King."
"It has been our dream for 25 years since the Catholic community began gathering in Sioux Center to a have new church building. We have been in the planning process since 2014 as our growth has long made our current facilities inadequate to meet the needs of our community,” said Father Doug Klein, pastor of Christ the King Church.
Christ the King parish was established about 25 years ago and is within the Diocese of Sioux City. The parish has seen tremendous growth in recent years.
“Our community consists primarily of Hispanic immigrant families that have helped fuel the growth from the original 13 families to almost 300 at this point. There is a lot of excitement about the possibilities for the future,” Klein said.
Following the Mass a presentation on new church and campaign plans will take place along with a free dinner.
