"I am sending you to the far south side of the city, in the vicinity of95th and Western to start a new parish under the title of Christ the King."-Cardinal Mundelein to Rev. Patrick J. Gleeson, creating the Parish of Christ the King on July 3, 1936
This year Christ the King Parish celebrates their 80th Anniversary! The family of Christ the King remains a diverse and vibrant community in the heart of Beverly. We are proud of our varied ethnic backgrounds and strong bonds between generations as we strive to create a spirit-filled faith life in service to all.
