The Christ the King Community is a vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive parish. Founded in 1951, it has a reputation for excellent liturgy with well-prepared homilies, outstanding adult education programs, an exceptional school and religious education program, and an array of active ministries that address both parish and community needs, especially those of the poor and marginalized.
Characterized by a gracious hospitality and a collaborative spirit, the priests and staff of the parish share leadership with a strong parish council with results including: active participation in ecumenism with interfaith ministerial meetings, ecumenical convocations, monthly Taize Prayer, and interfaith concerts; a St. Vincent de Paul Society with amazing outreach to the needy; a social justice ministry that has addressed homelessness and hunger, to name just a few areas; and a Youth Ministry that continues to grow and reach out with faith formation as well as with service projects both at home and beyond our parish and state.
The people of the parish are always willing to take on challenges and unafraid of the adventuresome, daring, and new. We insist on being a people who “hear the gospel and make a difference.” In clear and simple terms, that is our parish mission and we are a people deeply committed to that mission.
