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.

Winter Weather

When the Lyme/Old Lyme schools have a snow delay or are closed due to winter weather, the daily morning mass will be celebrated instead at 12:00 noon, and there will be NO Adoration that day.

If a snowstorm occurs on a weekend, Sunday Mass will go on as usual, but parishioners are advised to consider personal safety before coming to church.  We continue to livestream all our masses.

For Faith Formation cancellations, check here, on our Facebook page, and on TV's Channel 3.

Mass at Christ the King

At Christ the King Church we celebrate the Eucharist every day.  All are welcome to attend Mass in person. But we also continue to live-stream weekend Masses for those who are uncomfortable or unable to attend in person. The pandemic 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.
