CHRIST THE KING CATHOLIC CHURCH

A Christ-Centered & Friendly Roman Catholic Community

Welcome

 

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.

 

 


Message from Fr. Joe

 

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 

From the second reading of this Sunday we consider a very important message from St. Paul: “For the Jews demand signs and the Greeks look for wisdom, but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are called, Jews and Greeks alike, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God” (1Cor. 1:22-24).

 

The sign of the cross, was a complete paradox. It became a stumbling block to the Jews and intelligent Greeks since in their eyes the cross was a sign of capital punishment, of failure and of death. It was so difficult for people to see, to recognize the true power of Jesus who indeed accepted to be dead on the cross for humankind’s salvation. 

 

Lent invites us to look intensively at the cross of our Lord, to consider the wisdom found in the cross. The wisdom that we need as Christians is the wisdom of God. We are to totally submit ourselves to the will of God, to take up our daily cross to follow the way of Jesus. It may be foolish to many, but as St. Paul insists, the foolishness of God is wiser than all human wisdom.

 

 May God bless us all!                               

                                                                     

Fr. Joe
