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,
This Sunday we celebrate the feast of Pentecost. Pentecost literally means 50th. It is a feast celebrated on the 50th day after the Passover feast by the Jews, and a feast celebrated on the 50th day after the feast of the Resurrection of Jesus by Christians. The Jewish feast of Pentecost called all devout Jews to Jerusalem to celebrate their birth as God’s chosen people. This feast is fulfilled in the pouring out of the Spirit on Mary and the Apostles (Acts 1:14). The Spirit seals the new law and new covenant brought by Jesus, written not on stone tablets but on the hearts of believers, new chosen people.
Before Pentecost, the disciples had been fearful of the Jews. They had locked themselves in the upper room. It would be the same with us at this time, fear and uncertain future have impacted our lives. We are yearning for the day we get back to normal, but we also recognize that our previous patterns of living have been changed. They won’t be the same anymore.
On Pentecost, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to shatter the apostles’ fear and fill them with strength so powerful that they opened wide the door and went out to proclaim the Good News of Jesus. Transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit, they were willing to live the saving message of Christ.
During these days, we do need more than ever before the power of the Holy Spirit as we are battling the ravages of the virus. Let us be open to the power of the Holy Spirit. May the Holy Spirit give us the courage to live the saving message of the Risen Lord, to bring hope and peace to our families and others!
Monday-Friday: 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
As we have entered Phase 2 of the NC reopening plan, and even though we are allowed to have Mass indoor, we consider to have three outdoor Masses (in the front yard of our church) every weekend until further notice:
*Saturday Vigil: 5:00pm
Please remember this:
1. We are glad that you are able to come to worship the Lord as we try to conduct the Mass outdoor. Please remember that until situations change, there will be three outdoor Masses every weekend if weather permitting: Saturday Vigil at 5:00pm, Sunday at 9:30am and at 11:00am in Spanish.
2. RCIA teachers, please collect all information about RCIA candidates for this year. We plan to do the rite of Christian initiation for them as soon as possible. The dates for First Communion and Confirmation will be announced to you as soon as we find it safe to celebrate in the parish center.
3. We are glad to let you know that we do have daily Masses from Tuesday through Friday at 7:00am in the parish center.
