Why I'm not a Parishioner at Christ the King

When we first moved here, the search for a Catholic Church ensued. I found a little chapel two blocks from our first house, that was part of a larger parish St. Francis of Assisi. I fell in love not only with the chapel, but with the community and the two priests that headed the parish.

A year later we moved to a property on campus. So I did the student thing an explored the church on campus Christ the King. The pastor of the church rubbed me the wrong way from the beginning. His stance of various things, was in my opinion, contrary to the Catholic teachings - and to top it off he was so vocal I found it offensive. I vowed I'd rather miss mass than go there again.

I stuck with St. Francis and its wonderful community. I'm very glad I did.
