CORPUS CHRISTI CHURCH
My Dear Parishioners,
During these weeks
of Lenten preparation for Easter, each of us has
ample cause to reflect upon those challenges and
obstacles which tend to handicap our spiritual development.
The hope of this season is that we will ?nd our
lives transformed by the many ways we encounter
God’s Word, by the richness of the Scripture
readings chosen to encourage, to challenge, to confront,
Lent is a time to discover the extraordinary in
the ordinary. It is an invitation to bring a new
and holy attention to the activities in our everyday
In the words of Pope Francis, “Lent comes
providentially to awaken us, to rouse us from torpor,
from the risk of moving forward by inertia.”
My friends, I am always amazed the way our church
is ?lled on Ash Wednesday even though it is not
a required holy day of obligation. No one is required
to receive blessed ashes.
But there is something about the beginning of this
season of Lent that draws us in, calls us to return
to sanity, to a bit of austerity, to a change of
heart and mind.
Let us be inspired during this Holy Season to take
time apart to reflect upon the challenges in our
lives in order to return to our daily activities
with new inspiration.
God will always
surprise us with possibilities when we least expect
them. Let this Lent be one of those surprises.
Live Streaming Mass
We will train you for this
surprisingly easy task
We are very excited
that Corpus Christi will soon be able to make our
Sunday Mass available on the Parish website via live
streaming! This means the experience of Mass will
be available to our homebound parishioners and to
anyone else who would like to view our Mass, but is
unable to attend on Sunday.
technology also presents an opportunity for a volunteer
position at Corpus Christi on the Sundays that we
are recording the Mass. We are looking for someone
to help make this a reality. If you are interested,
contact the parish office at 310- 454-1328, or by
email at email@example.com.

in 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 on Homelessness.
This Task Force is made up of community volunteers
committed to compassionately addressing the serious
issues associated with the homeless. They have decided
to reach out to a group of experts that have experience
in empowering homeless people to rebuild thei r lives.
This group is the OPCC and our local task force is
hoping to work with 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
