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. Fr. Joe
PRAYER FOR WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES IN PHILADALPHIA
WITH POPE FRANCIS’ VISIT
God and Father of us all, in Jesus, your Son and our Savior, you have made us your sons and daughters in the family of the Church. May your grace and love help our families in every part of the world be united to one another in fidelity to the Gospel. May the example of the Holy Family, with the aid of your Holy Spirit, guide all families, especially those most troubled, to be homes of communion and prayer and to always seek your truth and live in your love. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us! Amen
