Welcome from the Pastor
In the Spirit of our Parish Mission Statement that calls us to be a welcoming parish, as Pastor of Christ the King Parish, I welcome you to our new Parish Web-site. It is intended to provide general information about the parish, the sacraments, timely news concerning parish events and programs as well as ways to contact the parish directly. Besides a parish focus, it also provides easy access to information about the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Universal Church. There are also related links to websites that will inform and encourage your spiritual life, especially through the daily Scriptures. It is my hope that the new website will be a blessing for our parish—a blessing that will inform and inspire us along the way. Take advantage of the informational and inspirational opportunities it provides.
