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,
During the next five Sundays, the gospel readings will be taken from the sixth chapter of the Gospel of John, the great discourse on the Bread of Life. This Sunday, the gospel reading begins with the multiplication of the loaves and fishes, the feeding of the crowds (John 6:1-15). We usually refer to this as the miracle of the loaves, but there is a lot more to this miracle than food for dinner. On a deeper meaning, this miracle is a sharing in the Lord Himself. It is a miracle of being filled with the food the Lord Himself gives.
In the coming week’s gospel readings, Jesus repeatedly told the people: “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry; and whoever believes in me will never thirst” (John 6: 35). More than feeding the crowds, Jesus intended to teach his disciples and the people the truths of eternal life; it is the truth about the Eucharist.
That’s why we come to Jesus, the source of life; that’s why we come to Church on Sunday to be fed by the Lord Himself. Our spiritual journey should be strong to reach our destiny. We do need heavenly food from the Lord for that journey. Yes, wonderful things can happen if we trust completely in the power of the Lord.
May God bless us all!
