My Dear Parishioners,
This weekend at the 5:30 p.m. Mass on Sunday thirty-two of our young people, after having completed two years of preparation, will be confirmed by Bishop Tom Curry.
The Most Reverend Tom Curry will confirm the students by laying his hands upon their heads, anointing them with oil of chrism and saying to each of them, "Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit."
Our Catholic faith teaches us that the Holy Spirit imparts wisdom, understanding, knowledge, council, piety, fortitude and fear of the Lord to all who receive the sacrament. These gifts allow the recipient to have reverence, make good judgments, and create a personal relationship with God as they come to know Him better.
An occasion like Confirmation gives us an opportunity not just to recognize our young people, but to reflect back upon those who have gone before us, those on whose shoulders we stand.
So, as our young people celebrate this wonderful sacrament, we ask them to remember all of those who have traveled the journey with them. This includes not only the coordinators and facilitators of the program, but also, their sponsors and those who loved and supported them their whole lives.
May the faith you confirm today
Be your key
To open the doors to....
HOPE, when all seems lost,
JOY, when despair consumes you,
LOVE, when hatred afflicts you, and
PEACE, when turmoil surrounds you.

in Pacific Palisades
Pacific Palisades has experienced an increase in its home-less population over the past several years.
In October of 2014 a group of local people formed the
Pacific Palisades Task Force
Force is made up of community volunteers committed to
the serious issues associated
with the homeless. They have decided to
out to a
group of experts that have experience in empowering
to rebuild thei
r lives. This group is the
OPCC and our local task force is hoping to work
them in trying to respond to
this challenge in our community.
We here at Corpus Christ are have committed a fund to support the task force.

eGiving with Faith Direct
This month we are introducing a new and exciting way for you to support our parish offertory and second collections: Faith Direct. Faith Direct enables parishioners to make your Church contributions through either direct debit from your checking/savings account or through your credit/debit card. No more writing checks or searching for envelopes on the way out the door. Now you can apply the convenience of direct debit to your parish offerings in much the same way as you may now use it to make your mortgage, car or tuition payments.
Faith Direct also offers you personalized offertory cards to replace your envelopes for the collection basket.
