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!
(see left column)
Benefitting Lifetime Pregnancy Help Center. After Mass, as you exit, we will be distributing baby bottles from Lifetime Pregnancy Help Center. We encourage each family to take one bottle. We are asking that you take the bottle home, fill it with currency or checks, and ask your family, friends, and co-workers to do the same. Please return it to the church no later than Sun., Oct. 30. Our goal is to raise $100 per bottle to help save lives. The Baby Bottle campaign funds the life-saving work that Lifetime offers to mothers making decisions about whether to continue an unplanned pregnancy. It helps them to choose LIFE for their unborn babies.

Dear Christ the King Parishioners,
I am sad to tell you that I will be resigning from my position as the Christ the King Office Manager. I have received and accepted a scholarship for an intensive course on marriage and family planning that begins in November in Florida. Also, I will be using that time to discern the future direction of my life.
It has truly been a pleasure and a joy serving and working with everyone at Christ the King Parish as your Office Manager over the last two years. This is a blessed parish with many good gifts to bring to the Church and to the world, and I have been blessed to be a part of it! Please know that I will keep you, the people of Christ the King Parish, in my heart and that my prayers will always be with you.
My last day of work will be November 11th. I would be delighted and honored, if you happen to be in the neighborhood, if you stopped in to say good-bye.
May God bless you as you seek to serve Christ, our King!
As always, in Christ,
