Solemnity of Christ the King

November 21

The Church celebrates the Solemnity of Christ the King on November 21, 2021. Pope Pius XI instituted this feast in 1925 with his encyclical Quas primas (“In the first”) to respond to growing secularism and atheism.  He recognized that attempting to “thrust Jesus Christ and his holy law” out of public life would result in continuing discord among people and nations. This solemnity reminds us that while governments come and go, Christ reigns as King forever. 

 

Join us for a Novena from November 12-20, the nine days preceding the Solemnity. A daily message will be sent out with the Novena prayers for that day. Let us offer our prayers to Christ the King for the freedom of the Church.
