Welcome to Christ the King Roman Catholic Church!
We are a community of believers who come together to rejoice in the gifts that have been bestowed on us by the Creator, and who strive to reflect the love of Jesus Christ in our everyday lives.
Our worship space is located in the picturesque shoreline village of Old Lyme, Connecticut, where the Connecticut River meets Long Island Sound. (Directions to Christ the King Church.)
Who We Are
Christ the King Parish is a family of faith, participating in the life of the local, national, and world communities through prayer, worship, and acts of love.
We make our journey through life in the company of one another while growing by the words of Jesus Christ, through the grace of the Holy Spirit, and in the spirit of Vatican II as taught to us by the Church.
Parish Mission Statement
What We Do
The Celebration of the Eucharist is, of course, at the center of our parish life, and we invite you to celebrate with us!
But the parishioners of Christ the King Church carry forward the spirit of Jesus Christ in numerous other ways as well — through outreach to the sick, the poor, and the imprisoned; through educational and social justice programs; and through parish-wide social activities.

Mass at Christ the King during COVID-19
As of May 22, the social-distancing guidelines at Mass have been relaxed. Alternate pews are no longer blocked off, and Communion is now distributed to two lines of the faithful. Face masks are no longer required for those who have been fully vaccinated, but hand sanitizer is still available at the entrance. Read more about attending in-person. The dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass has ended, but those who are sick or vulnerable should continue to exercise caution, and join us from home through Zoom if able.
Note: If you are sick, if you have a fever, or if you think you may have been exposed to the coronavirus or any illness, please stay home! We will continue to live-stream at least one weekend Mass via Zoom for those who cannot come to church.
