Protection of Children, Youth, and Vulnerable Adults

We are committed to protecting children, youth, and vulnerable adults in all parish activities and sponsored ministries.

  • Background Check
  • Code of Conduct
  • Safe Environment Training

Once completed, these are recredentialed every three years for those still in active ministry.

Please contact Terri Hunt, Director of Faith Formation & Discipleship for assistance.

You may find much helpful information at the Archdiocesan Safe Environment webpage by clicking here: www.safe-environment.archspm.org.

If you suspect abuse or need assistance, you can find the phone numbers for contacting authorities in the proper area of Minnesota at the MN Department of Human Services-Child Protection by clicking here: www.mn.gov/dhs/people-we-serve/children-and-families/services/child-protection/contact-us/.

Remember, if a child or vulnerable adult is in immediate danger, you should always call 911.


2022 First Communion



Welcome Father Thomas!


God’s Blessings and Peace to all the women, men, teens, and children who gather as the Church of Christ the King! It is with great joy and anticipation that I accept the appointment of Archbishop Hebda as your parochial vicar/pastor starting on August 1st. I look forward to walking with you in the ways of faith, nurturing and caring for each other as we fulfill the mission given us by Jesus.

I was born in Minneapolis and raised on the north side of the city. Ascension Church was our family parish and I attended K-8 there. I attended the University of Minnesota, but was drafted in the Spring of 1966.  Fortunately, after some testing, I was commissioned as an Officer in the U. S. Army Signal Corps. I spent a year state-side and then for the next 12 months was assigned to a combat photography unit in Vietnam becoming the commanding officer of that unit for the final five months of my tour of duty.

Returning to the U.S., I worked for an international public relations firm in Washington, DC. While living in Reston, Virginia, I helped found the first parish there called: St. Thomas a’ Becket. I was very involved in this Catholic Community and it was the parishioners who suggested that I should become a priest … even though, I would probably return to Minnesota. Which is exactly what I did! I attended St. John Vianney Seminary and the St. Paul Seminary.  I was ordained in June of 1980 at the age of 35. I have had four assignments: Associate Pastor @ St. Joseph, New Hope (a western suburb of Mpls.), Pastor @ St. Timothy, Blaine (a northern suburb), the Founding Pastor of: St. Thomas Becket, Eagan, (a southern suburb), & Pastor @ St. Joseph, Red Wing, (a handsome river-town).

I have a special place in my memory and in my heart for the Parish of Christ the King. You see, I did my Internship Year here from July 1979 through June 1980.  At that time, I was an ordained Transitional Deacon preparing for Priesthood Ordination under the wonderful mentorship of Msgr. Dick Moudry and the CTK Staff.  I even celebrated my First Mass here at CTK as a newly-ordained priest on Sunday, June 1st.  Perhaps, some of you were there? Please let me know if you were. 

Overall, I simply encourage each and everyone of you to continue to be the wonderful Christ the King Community that, down through the generations, has given strong witness to the Christian faith through: common prayer, celebration of sacraments, faith formation for all ages, attention to justice, and action on behalf of those in need.

I very much look forward to serving among you … and may God bless each and every one of you!

Fr. Thomas M. Kommers

P.S.  Most folks call me:  Fr. Thomas or just Thomas
