Dear Christ the King Family:
Looking back over the past 20 years, I am filled with gratitude for the opportunity to serve Christ the King as pastor, with its rich history of faithful service to the families of Moline and far beyond. The parishioners of Christ the King pride themselves in being a warm, welcoming and diverse community, and are actively engaged in a variety of ministries that provide hope to those most in need.
We worship together in our beautiful church, but its roof needs replacement. We draw many hundreds of pilgrims from across the country each year to our Believers Together Center, but our parking lots need repair, and we have a recurring need to maintain and replace the pumps and air handlers of our geothermal units.
Our doors are open wide to a rich diversity of people who hunger to grow deeper in their faith and discover their giftedness, but our facilities need attention.
Please continue to review this website to learn more about our needs and how you can assist Christ the King in being as welcoming, vibrant and faithful tomorrow as it is today. Please, also, consider supporting Seton Catholic School, where many of our children receive a strong foundation of faith. Support us with your prayers and a pledge. With your help, together we can accomplish this.
Fr. Donald Levitt
Pastor, Christ the King Parish
