Christ the King parish is a little corner of heaven on earth deep in the heart of Oildale, and you are welcome here. The building of Christ the King was completed in 1950 but the first Mass had been celebrated on a piano/altar in a Chester Avenue public hall in 1948 attended by a small congregation not numbering more than 200 souls. Under the leadership and spiritual direction of dedicated pastors, we have continued for sixty five years to move forward with renovations and additions to our parish facilities, and, more importantly, to the unseen temple which is the spiritual lives of those who claim discipleship of Christ the only King. Most attention is paid to the sacraments, especially Sunday Mass. We are rightfully proud of our youth who through LifeTeen and Edge programs are responding to the evangelization to follow Christ. The parish organizations, the many parish ministries, all function only to spread the Catholic Faith through compassionate and loving service.
I hope that you will enjoy this website, and please come to taste our hospitality. We look forward to knowing you, our brothers and sisters in the family of God the Father of us all.
