Hello everyone,As the Religious Education program at Christ the King has grown and evolved over the years and with the switch to virtual learning in this time of COVID-19, there was a need for a Director of Religious Education. I am happy to announce Mr. Justin Bejar has accepted the position. He is a recent graduate from Seton Hall with a Master degree in Biology. Justin attended CCD here, was a member of the CYO and recently a catechist in the CCD program so he has known the Religious Education program here at Christ the King. We welcome Justin and I ask you to keep him in your prayers.

Fr. Luke

Spiritual Closeness in a Time of Social Distancing

As Christians, we encounter Jesus in his people—our families and friends,
our neighbors and fellow parishioners, our co-workers and school mates,
even people we don’t know personally (strangers) who we come in
contact with as we go about our daily lives.
