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.

Lent in Three Minutes


FAST AND ABSTINENCE FOR LENT

The Bishops of the United States prescribe, as minimal obligation, that all persons who are fourteen years of age and older are bound to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday, March 6th, on all the Fridays of Lent and Good Friday. Further, all persons eighteen years of age and older, up to and including their fifty-ninth birthday, are bound to fast by limiting themselves to a single full meal on Ash Wednesday and on Good Friday, while the other two meals on those days are to be light. All the faithful are encouraged, when possible, to participate at Mass and to receive the Holy Eucharist daily, to celebrate frequently the Sacrament of Penance, to undertake spiritual reading, especially the study of the Sacred Scriptures, and to participate in parish Lenten devotions as well as Lenten education programs.
