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,

                                                       

This is the last Sunday of the Christmas Season and the First Sunday in Ordinary time. The Feast of the Baptism of the Lord concludes Christmas and begins the meditation on the ministry of Jesus. There are three aspects of this feast: 1) the Lord humbles himself before John the Baptist, 2) the Lord is empowered by the Spirit to begin the mission of the Heavenly Father, 3) the Lord expresses his solidarity with those looking to change the world.

 

Let us focus on the third aspect of the feast: the Lord expresses His solidarity with those looking to change the world. Our world is broken because of evil things done by people.

We truly want peace, solidarity and justice for the world. We are no different than the people of Jesus’ time. Those who stood before John the Baptist were sick of a world full of cruelty, violence and war. They wanted a change and they wanted to do something about this immediately. And do you know what they did? They repented their own sins. They recognized that the world was not going to change unless they changed. Jesus saw this and joined them. The Man of Peace accepted the baptism of John because He also wanted to lead people to change the world.

 

As of today, many people are driven by fear of terrorism, violence, political and economic conflicts. Jesus says to each of us that the Kingdom of God, the New Order of Peace and Joy, is upon us if we accept his invitation to change our life before we can change the world.

May God bless us all!

Fr. Joe
