Parish Short History
In June 1895, land was purchased in Daphne for a Catholic church. The Church of the Assumption was built by the early Italian colonists.
Father Angelo Chiariglione, a Scalbrini missionary from Torino, Italy, was the first resident pastor (1898-1909).
In 1898, the Queen of Italy, Margherita of Savoy, sent a gift of rich vestments, an illuminated missal, a chalice, monstrance, candlesticks and other articles. The vestments are on display in a special case in the church vestibule today.
Bishop Thomas Toolen in 1937, blessed the cornerstone of a new church on October 24th and the parish name was changed to Christ the King. Father James Loftus was the pastor at the time. This church still stands today on the Christ the King campus. It was renamed “Assumption Hall” in honor of the parish’s roots, and is used for ministry and social functions daily.
