PARISH OFFICE – Due to the concerns with the pandemic and concern with rising cases, our parish office will continue to be closed until further notice. There will be someone in the office to answer calls and address any business that needs to be attended to. Thank you for your understanding.
As you visit our site, you will see that we are a vibrant parish offering many opportunities for people to live out their Catholic Christian faith. There are activities and organizations for people of every age and almost every interest. We have a food pantry, a library, and a thrift shop. We have a very active St. Vincent de Paul Society, numerous educational opportunities, social gatherings, and liturgical ministries, and that is just the tip of the iceberg! Our Mass schedule can be found in the footer, along with our location and mailing address. For office hours go to; About-Masses-Office Hours-Directions. We would love to have you join us as we listen to God’s Word and share in the Eucharist.
You can join the parish by setting up a time to come to the office. If you are registering online, go to New Member Registration, fill out the form, and hit “submit”. Someone from the parish will call you to extend a welcome. If you have any questions or comments, please go to “contact us”; all submissions go directly to the parish office.
If you live on Cape Cod for only part of the year, you are welcome to join the parish and participate in the various organizations for as long as you are here.
Rev. Edward J. Healey, Pastor
The Roman Catholic Community of Christ the King Parish has as its purpose: The providing of spiritual nourishment and enrichment to its members through the Holy Spirit, in harmony with the Second Vatican Council; and the offer of welcome to all. This is accomplished by celebrating the sacraments, preaching the Gospel by word and example, and instructing in the truths of the faith. We strive to be present in a spirit of prayer and service to those in need using the talents and gifts of our individual members. We are life~affirming stewards of God’s creation striving to build the Body of Christ.
COVID 19 Precautions: In this time of the pandemic, sacrifices must be made in order to preserve our own health and wellbeing and that of others; therefore masks must be worn in the congregation, and efforts to keep an adequate distance from others outside of one’s own household must be made. Allowing adequate space for social distancing, the present capacity of the church is about 125 people. Fortunately, but sadly at the same time, we have never exceeded that number at any one weekend Mass during the Summer season so have suspended the requirement that reservations be made to attend Mass in advance as we move into Fall. However, should the present situation with the pandemic continue until the end of this year, reservations will be asked in advance to attend the Masses of Christmas. At this time, only the volunteers who serve the weekly Food Pantry are permitted to meet in the Parish Hall, further direction from the Chancery Office has been requested as regards the meetings of parish groups and outside organizations in parish facilities. Your patience and understanding with all these precautionary measures are deeply appreciated.
Communion for Those Connecting by Live-Stream: Those refraining from mixing with larger groups of people and thus not attending Mass but connecting with its celebration thanks to the Live Stream are encouraged to come 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM in the church on Sunday afternoons to complete their Sunday worship by receiving the Eucharist in a manner that is simple and brief thus with a significant reduction of risk to one’s health in this time of the pandemic. In regard to those who are truly homebound by age or infirmity and who would not be able to come to the Church even briefly on Sunday afternoons, while at this time we cannot send a Special Minister of Holy Communion into your homes who is unrelated to you, a member of your household or a neighbor with whom you already have regular contact who is Catholic can be deputized to serve as a Special Minister of Holy Communion to bring the sacrament to you on Sundays during this pandemic. The parish must be informed in advance to deputize the minister and a pyx, which is a small container specifically for the purpose of carrying the Holy Eucharist outside of the Church will be needed; please call the parish office for further information and to arrange for this to happen.
“Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. “
At Christ the King Parish we all work together to protect our children. Please click the Diocesan Safe Environment page for information on how we protect the faithful, and the steps involved to minister, work, or volunteer in the diocese.
