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 readings of this Sunday are about liberation. In the first reading, Nehemiah assures his people that this day is holy to the Lord your God. So, do not be sad do not weep. Go eat good food and drink sweet wine. The presence of the Lord causes his people to rejoice, be happy and celebrate.
In the gospel Jesus proclaims the prophecy of Isaiah to his hometown people: “The Spirit of the Lord has anointed me. He has sent me to bring the good news to the poor, to proclaim liberty to captives, to give the blind new sight, to set the captives free, and to proclaim the Lord’s year of favor.” And then he makes a clear statement: “Today this scripture passage is being fulfilled in your hearing.” This statement is clearly saying that Jesus is the Messiah, the one who comes to fulfill the prophecy in the Old Testament, to set people free from the power of sin and darkness. He comes to bring healing, joy and festival to all.
Yes, Jesus is the Messiah. He is present among us. His presence causes us to rejoice and celebrate for he comes to liberate us from the power of the world. The way we proclaim the presence of the Lord in our daily life is to be attentive to the needs of our brothers and sisters. We are the instruments of the Lord, to make his presence real and visible to others.
May God bless us all!
