CORPUS CHRISTI CHURCH
My Dear Parishioners,
This weekend on
November 11, we celebrate Veterans Day in honor
of our veterans from different wars, and the American
soldiers still fighting overseas.
I consider these men and women to be heroes, and
I do that out of my admiration for them and out
of a deep gratitude for the sacrifices they make
for our country.
I recently came
across this Prayer for Veterans, which I wanted
to share with you:
“God of peace, we pray for those who have
served our nation and have laid down their lives
to protect and defend our freedom.
We pray for those who have fought, whose spirits
and bodies are scarred by war, whose nights are
haunted by memories too painful for the light
We pray for those who serve us now, especially
for those in harm’s way. Shield them from
danger and bring them home.
Turn the hearts and minds of our leaders and
our enemies to the work of justice and a harvest
May the peace you left us, the peace you gave
us, be the peace that sustains, the peace that
Christ Jesus, hear us!
Lord Jesus, hear our prayer!
Live Streaming Mass
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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
here to donate to the Homeless Outreach
As part of the
Annual Catholic Appeal, Together in Mission supports
81 parishes and 63 schools in every region of the
Archdiocese and we're the only Annual Appeal program
in the country that dedicates every dollar
to assisting parishes and schools that need it.
Your gift enables us to provide essential resources
and ministries that enrich parish life, strengthen
families, advance Church leadership and inspire
and educate future generations of our faith.
