The Pastoral Council Purpose Statement 
       The Pastoral Council of Christ the King Parish will use their Catholic faith and 
       talents to identify and assess parish goals and initiatives to support the pastor so 
       that Christ the King is a parish of dynamic Catholics. 
      Four values were defined by which we will operate: 
      Council Values 
      Faith-Filled: We will live out our Catholic faith and give glory to God in our decisions, words and deeds. 
      Integrity: We will make decisions openly and honestly, and collaborate to reach a consensus in a faith filled and transparent way. 
      Leadership: We will think creatively to motivate and inspire people to implement ambitious plans and actions. 
      Accountability: We will take responsibility for all decisions and actions of the Council. 

      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 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.   Fr. Joe
