Welcome to Corpus Christi Church, located in beautiful Pacific Palisades, near Santa Monica and Malibu, in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Corpus Christi is a Catholic parish that was built in Pacific Palisades in 1950 and has attracted Santa Monica and Malibu residents as well as Pacific Palisades residents for many years.

In sixty years Corpus Christi Parish has grown from a nucleus of one hundred dedicated souls to the active membership of twenty three hundred families that it has today.

Corpus Chrisi School was established in 1951, and provides a Catholic co-education experience to the community of Pacific Palisades within the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

The celebrant of the Mass will remain in the church after Mass until 9 am along with any members of the congregation that would like to stay.  The celebrant will lead the discussion taking one chapter a day from the “Rediscovering Jesus” book. The book is designed to have 40 reflections for the season of Lent.

My Dear Parishioners,

Ash Wednesday is coming up on February 10 and this begins our journey through the Lenten Season, leading to the wonderful Easter celebration on Sunday, March 27.

Many people ask me, “What can I do for Lent?” As your Pastor, I am asking each one of you to make a pledge to come to church every weekend as your Lenten commitment.

For those of you that do not go to church regularly, I want you to know that we miss you. There is not a Sunday that goes by that your absence is not felt. You are truly missed!

The Lenten season can sometimes be used as an opportunity for people to return to active participation in their Catholic faith and the great symbol of that return is, of course, going to confession. For some reason it seems that during this season of fasting, the grace of God touches us and we feel the need to confess our sins and to be reconciled to the God who loves us.

Let me reassure you that God’s love is with you every day of your life. Regardless of who we are or what we do God’s love is constant. Our only responsibility is to respond to that love.

I look forward to seeing you in church during Lent and, if at any time we can do anything for you, Corpus Christi Parish is here for you. In the meantime, let us pray for each other as we journey through Lent together.

Siempre Adelante!

Homeless Outreach
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 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 force.
