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.

Ash Wednesday

Looking for a quick way to explain Ash Wednesday to your friends? Look no further than Busted Halo’s two-minute video that describes the day which begins the season of Lent, and why Catholics and many Christians receive ashes on their foreheads.

Best Lent Ever

Don’t give up chocolate this Lent – Are you searching for a deeper sense of purpose? A clearer understanding of God’s plan for your life? What matters most and what matters least? Then it’s time to rediscover Jesus.

Mother of Mercy House

They bring mercy to the streets where it’s needed most. By Lou Baldwin –  “Two Irishmen and a nun entered a bar….” What’s the punchline? There isn’t one because this is no joke, but rather a new Catholic outreach effort of the Philadelphia Archdiocese that has taken firm root in a former bar in a tough section of the city.
