A Welcome Message from our Pastor, Fr. Jim Fitzmaurice:
I am happy to welcome you to the website of Christ the King Parish in the Guilderland neighborhood of Albany County. Our Parish grew out of necessity as more and more people moved to the suburbs in the 1950’s. We were established in 1957 and celebrated our 50th Anniversary with a wonderful dinner dance in 2007.Our simple Mission Statement captures what we strive for as a Roman Catholic Parish of the Diocese of Albany; “Christ the King Parish is called together by God as a faith sharing community to radiate, celebrate and proclaim Jesus Christ through prayer, word, worship and service as we seek to build up His one body, adapting to the diverse needs of the people in whose midst we live and witness.”As human persons and as disciples of Christ we, like you, are constantly changing and developing, growing and evolving our identity as Christians. As a Parish we feel we can do this better within a community setting and so I invite you to explore your faith with us. You can learn a lot about us from this website and please come, worship with us, or contact us and I think you’ll see why we proclaim “All are welcome here!”
