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,
Today’s Gospel reading follows directly from last week’s text in which we heard about the Twelve being sent on mission. Now they came back and reported what happened on that mission. Jesus first invited them to go to a lonely place for a rest. However, when they got to the lonely place they would find it packed with people, and people were hungry for the Word and leadership. The point from here is that to be Jesus’ disciples, there would be no day off, no holiday, and that there would be no getting away from our mission.
Certainly everyone needs a break, a holiday or a vacation. But the fact is that we cannot take a holiday from being married, we cannot take a holiday from our responsibilities for children, and we certainly cannot take a holiday from God or from our task as Jesus’ disciples. These things are part of our identity as Jesus’ disciples.
So, today we pray for all leaders. We pray that we and all leaders may be filled with divine wisdom to become Christ-like to shepherd the people of God.
May God bless us all!
