CORPUS CHRISTI CHURCH
Dear Fellow Parishioners,
We are now at the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time according to our Liturgical Calendar.
Ordinary Time (as opposed to sacred time) refers to two specific periods in the Christian calendar in which the Sundays are not directly related to the Christmas or Easter holidays.
Rather than referring to something every day or common, “Ordinary” in this sense, comes from the word ordinal (meaning “numbered”), referencing the manner in which the Sundays of the period are numbered.
Ordinary time presents us with an opportunity to consider again the fact that living as a Christian calls us to meet the Lord in the real stuff of daily life. He is already there, walking before us and beckoning us to follow after Him.
I look at Ordinary Time as a time set aside for reflecting on and celebrating our call to follow Jesus day by day.
You will notice in our sanctuary environment and in the vestments worn by the priests the color green is very prominent. This color is usually considered a symbol of the Church's growth and rebirth.
Ordinary Time remains an important part of the ecclesiastical year, one in which we can live in the spirit of life and rebirth and continue in the work of the church.
Monsignor Liam Kidney,

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.
