"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
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.
