Welcome to Christ The King Catholic Church, located near historic downtown High Point, NC. We are a growing and active Catholic community with a long and culturally diverse history. From our humble beginnings as a mission church to serve the African-American Catholics in 1940, our parish has grown to be a vibrant witness to the Gospel of Life.
Sunday Eucharist is the heart of our parish community as it gives us life, strengthens us and calls us to holiness. We are committed to Catholic education and teaching of our faith through our Youth ministry and in our lifelong Faith Formation Program.
Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The gospel reading of this Sunday portrays John the Baptist. St. Mark begins his gospel with the account of John the Baptist. Let us consider the role of John the Baptist during this season.
We need John the Baptist during Advent. The message of John is to change. Many people in Judea came to him confessing their sins. They wanted to be changed in their lives. If we want the world to be changed, we need to change ourselves first. If we want peace for the world, we need to change ourselves to be peacemakers, first for our family, for our community and for the people around us. If we want the sick to be healed, the hungry to be fed, the poor to receive what they truly need, then we need to change ourselves. We need to get out of our comfort zones in order to reach out to the needs of our brothers and sisters. If we want our parish to be active, if we want our community to be united in one to build up the mystical Body of Christ, then we need to pray more, to sacrifice ourselves more for the vineyard of the Lord.
The voice of John the Baptist continues calling us to change, to prepare for the coming of the Messiah into our life. When he comes, we will be filled with the peace and joy of the Kingdom.
May God bless us all!
