Christ The King Parish

WELCOME

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, our newest is Word on Fire – ENGAGE, 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.

Refugees and immigrants through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching. Faith in Action, the Gospel of John Loving God and Neighbor without distinction. Excerpt from an article written by Erin McDonald C.S.J., our presenter “The moment had arrived. The bus full of refugees was here. I instantly felt anxious. I don’t speak Spanish and it was my first day. The doors open in a sea of sullen and worn faces filed into the shelter. The local ICE detention facility had released another large group of asylum seekers some were limping from sore feet. Some looked terrified and exhausted. Some were children whimpering for a morsel of food. One woman carried a child who looked so sick, and lay so limp in her arms; I thought the toddler might be dead.”

Thursday, August 15th, 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Through Sacred Scripture and music this talk will discuss the variety of things in each of our everyday lives that serve to distract us from intimacy with God and with each other.

 

 

Saturday, August 17th, 9:00 – 11:00 AM
This four-part session and Q&A addresses the disease of addiction as a spiritual malady with devastating physiological and psychological effects. Participants will come to understand the totality of the disease on the mind, body, and spirit of the afflicted, the effects on the family and friends, and the necessary role that the Church must play in becoming a resource for those suffering from addictions and their families.


Catholic Charities Appeal: This annual appeal from Bishop Da Cunha requesting our financial assistance officially opened on May 1st and will continue until June 30th. The funds generated by this appeal support the many charitable, social, pastoral. and catechetical works of the church in the Diocese of Fall River throughout the year. An informative video on the good works made possible by the Catholic Charities Appeal can be viewed on our parish website or that of the Diocese. While charity is always necessary for the continuation of the good works of the local church, ultimately it is also of benefit to those who are willing to contribute because it asks us to exercise our generosity and it is by doing so that we continue to grow in that virtue. So all parishioners are asked to prayerfully discern what they might be comfortable in contributing and then to try to give a bit more so as to continue to move toward that ideal for which we pray at Mass – the fullness of charity!
