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,

This course will lead you deeper into investing, basic real estate planning, purposeful living, safeguarding your legacy, and discovering the keys to generational wealth and true generosity.

MOPS - Meeting in January 2017
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!

This ministry empowers parishioners to reach out to newcomers so that life-giving relationships can be nurtured between newcomers and veteran parishioners. All you need is a heart for welcoming! Our Shepherding Parishioners/Families will add warmth and a personal touch to our Christ the King Community. They will be responsible for delivering welcome bags, introducing the new members to parish staff, and inviting/bringing them to parish events. If you and your family are interested in being part of the Welcome Ministry, please email Amy Madonia at firstname.lastname@example.org. Further details will be following. Thank you!
