CORPUS CHRISTI CHURCH
My Dear Parishioners,
Think about your life 20 or 30 or 60 years ago. What were your plans? What did you envision for the future? What did you hope to be when you grew up? Did you achieve your hope or are you doing something with your life that you never imagined?
Questions like these encourage us to consider the paths our lives have taken and find the hand and heart of God in the midst of it all. In that way we become open to new paths and to new callings we might never have dreamed of answering.
Most of us have to work to make a living, so we educate ourselves and we get a job and we get comfortable sometimes in what we are doing.
Jesus had been a carpenter and was called to leave that safe and relatively comfortable life behind in order to call people to repent and believe, for the kingdom of God is at hand.
Sometimes, in some mysterious way, we can also be called to something new and unexpected like share the Gospel. This will not necessarily require us to travel to foreign lands, but it may require a shift in our way of thinking.
When Cardinal John Newman was attempting to find his way in life, he expressed his trust in God and in God’s will for him:
“God has created me to do him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which he has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain , a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good. I shall do his work. I shall be an angel of peace. I will trust Him whatever and wherever I am. I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain.”
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.

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.
