CORPUS CHRISTI CHURCH
My Dear Parishioners,
Day of Prayer for the
Care of Creation
Established by Pope Francis, September 1st is a day for prayer,
reflection and action to care for God’s creation.
The Catholic Church brings a distinct perspective to the discussion
of environmental questions, by lifting up the moral
dimensions of these issues and the needs of the most vulnerable
among us. This unique contribution is rooted in Catholic
teaching calling us to care for creation and for "the least of
these." (Mt 25:40).
The Conference of Catholic Bishops website has some helpful
information on how each one of us can contribute:
As an individual or a group, set a regular time to prayerfully
consider your contribution to climate change. Pray for the
resolve to lessen your impact.
Educate yourself and others on the issue of climate change.
Calculate your carbon footprint. Consider some cost-free
ways to lower your energy use. Learn how climate affects the
Share this pledge with family and friends.
Let your local, state, and federal officials know that you are
concerned about climate change.

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.

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.
