WHEREAS, this year 2012, members of Christ The King Catholic Church in South Nashville will mark the parish’s 75th anniversary and the church’s long history of area outreach and commitment to bettering their community, and is justly worthy of recognition and praise; and
WHEREAS, Reverend Dexter Sutton Brewer, who serves as pastor, has provided moral and spiritual guidance to the congregation since he took on the responsibilities of pastor five years ago, and today he continues to guide and develop many programs and opportunities for his congregation to learn the teaching of Christ, to help the church grow in membership and to move the church forward; and
WHEREAS, Christ the King has been celebrating its 75th anniversary with special events scheduled July through November, that will culminate with their feast day liturgies on November 25, 2012; and
WHEREAS, in July of 1937, several families in the Belmont area came together, pursuant to Bishop Adrian's decree, to celebrate their first Mass as the newly formed community of Christ the King. They gathered in a little white frame church with Father Joseph Leppert, their first pastor; and
WHEREAS, since 1937, Christ The King Catholic Church, stands today as a tribute to the dedication and hard work of its members, past and present, who have devoted their time, energy, and resources to ensure its continued existence as a house of God; and
WHEREAS, it is fitting and proper that the Metropolitan Council congratulates the members and clergy of Christ the King Catholic Church on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the founding of their church and offer our sincerest wishes for your continued prosperity in serving the Lord.
