Welcome to Christ the King Parish website.
This is our home on the Internet in this new digital age.
Christ the King Parish is a spirit filled community of intentional disciples, striving to live the Gospel. Founded in 1963, we are one of the largest parishes in the Springfield diocese. On this site you will learn about our parish, with numerous links to Catholic information and news.
If you are seeking a parish community in which to pray, to learn and to be of service to others, then our doors and hearts are open to you. Perhaps we will meet soon face to face.
Grace and peace to you,
NEW MASS SCHEDULE!

MOPS stands for "Mothers of Preschoolers" - but don't let that confuse you. MOPS is about meeting the needs of every mom of a child, from conception through kindergarten and even beyond! Whether you're urban, suburban, rural, stay-at-home, working, teen, adoptive, specialneeds, single or married, MOPS is for you! Being moms is what brings us together and allows us to build a community. What to expect? BREAKFAST AND COFFEE - what is a good get together without food and coffee? GUEST SPEAKERS - to provide insight and inspire new ideas. SMALL GROUPS - to relate and share advice with other moms. CRAFTS - fun and easy projects! CHILDCARE - the kiddos will have a blast while learning about what’s in the Bible.
There are still spots available in the leadership team!
