Patron Saint

Our church has been named after Christ The King.

The feast of Jesus Christ the Universal King was instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925 and is observed on the last Sunday of the Roman Catholic Liturgical Year.  It causes us to meditate on the Second and Final Coming of Christ, the last Judgment, and the end of the world.

Pope Benedict XVI has remarked that Christ's kingship is not based on "human power" but on loving and serving others. The perfect exemplar of that acceptance, he pointed out, is the Virgin Mary. Her humble and unconditional acceptance of God's will in her life, the Pope noted, was the reason that "God exalted her over all other creatures, and Christ crowned her Queen of heaven and earth."
