Christ the Savior Parish was established on Feburary 10, 1982 to help relieve the overcrowding at Most Holy Trinity and to provide services for Spanish-speaking Catholics of the area. Since its beginnings, it has served English, Spanish and Korean parishioners as well as military families. Monsignor Robert Getz was named the first pastor.
Sunday services were first held in the auditorium at Fannin Elementary School and religious education classes were held at the Northeast Recreation Center in Veterans Park. In September 1982, Rev. Vicente Calderon became the second pastor. In February 1984, the groundbreaking ceremony took place for the parish hall. Bishop Peña dedicated the hall on December 14, 1985 which now was used for Masses as well as for social functions. In December 1986, Rev. Leonides Rivero became the new pastor. He welcomed the Korean Catholic community to the parish and established several ministries including the Evangelization Program.
On July 5, 1990, Father Robert S. Kobe became the fourth pastor. Because of the foundation laid by his predecessors, parish ministries continued. A strong ministry to military families was developed at the encouragement of Bishop Peña and today Christ the Savior sponsors the Catholic War Veterans. In 1992, the religious education building was completed which houses religious education classes, the Evangelization Program, the Knights of Columbus, and the activities of the Korean community. In 1994, Bishop Michael Park from Korea dedicated the altar in the chapel.
In 1996, the rectory and parish offices were completed which allowed the pastor to live at the parish. On October 13, 2011, the campaign to build a new church was launched and today, the community prayerfully looks forward to a new sanctuary. About 1,400 people attend services every weekend and the religious education program ministers to 400 students annually. Masses are provided in English and Spanish on a daily basis. The parish has a strong stewardship program and the parishioners practice stewardship of time, talent, and their treasures under the guidance of Father Kobe.
