Christ the King Parish in Filinvest II, Batasan Hills, Quezon City, was established on March 5, 1991. On April 28, 1991, Jaime Cardinal Sin presided over the canonical erection of the parish community, the solemn consecration of the parish church as well as the installation of its first parish priest, Rev. Fr. Gerry Tapiador.

Prior to this, on August 25, 1983, the first mass inside Filinvest II was held at its clubhouse. The following year, the homeowners decided to build a chapel and started raising funds. They also decided to name the chapel in honor of Christ the King and in 1986, Cardinal Sin graced the groundbreaking ceremonies.

Parish priests starting 1994 were the missionaries of La Sallete, namely Fr. Francisco Maliwat, M.S., Fr. Antonio Abuan, M.S., Fr. Steven G. Munar, M.S., and Fr. Andreas Sudarsono, M.S. In August 2007, Fr. Mario S. Sanchez, a Diocesan priest became the parish priest, followed by Fr. Ambosio Nonato Legaspi until June 2019.

Presently, the parish priest is Fr. Danny P. Pajarillaga, also a Diocesan priest.

Feast day is the final Sunday before the first Sunday of Advent and it usually falls in November.
