Fr. Larry Sullivan
My 27 years of priestly ministry have been filled with incredible blessings and opportunities to serve the Lord. The life of a priest is extremely rewarding, thanks to the countless parishioners who have shown me the power of God’s love. I consider myself to be remarkably fortunate to have grown up at Queen of the Universe parish, to have spent 16 years at St. Celestine parish, six years at St. Christina and now to be at Christ the King for the past five years.
I believe that God calls all of us to a life of happiness and contentment. The peace of heart that God wants for all of us can be found when we open our lives to His Spirit. I do feel that it is my calling to help others experience the profound love that God has for each and every one of us. So please let me know if I can assist you in any way on your spiritual journey. Christ the King is an outstanding parish community in which we are all helping each other build up the City of God.

I began my ministry at Christ the King as a deacon in January 2016. Five months later, I received the joy of ordination as a priest of Jesus Christ. I have served as the associate pastor at Christ the King ever since.
Before joining our parish community, I ministered at St. James in Highwood; served as a chaplain at Mt. Sinai hospital; and interned at St. Damien’s in Oak Forest. I grew up in St. Bernadette Parish in Evergreen Park.
Christ the King is a wonderful community filled with people who want to be in communion with one another. Priesthood is a life privileged with graced moments, and the people of Christ the King have provided me with an abundance of them.

Upon my ordination on May 7, 1959, by Albert Cardinal Meyer, I was assigned to St. Margaret of Scotland as Associate pastor. In addition to being an associate pastor of three different parishes, I served as the Executive Secretary of the Clergy Personnel Board, and was pastor of St. Gall parish and then pastor of St. Mary Star of the Sea parish. Since my official retirement in July of 2003, Cardinal George appointed me as the administrator of St. Bede, St. Albert the Great and St. Catherine of Alexandria.
Christ the King has been my home since 2005. I am very happy at Christ the King thanks to the many wonderful parishioners as well as the terrific priests I live with. As a priest for almost 60 years, I have been blessed with a very fulfilling life surrounded by incredible people.
