CORPUS CHRISTI CHURCH
My Dear Parishioners,
This year’s theme: Rise Up!!
On the weekend of March 16 – 18, a group
of parishioners, parish staff, and school teachers
from Corpus Christi will make the journey once again
to Anaheim for the Religious Education Congress.
Each year, those of us who attend the Congress
feel so blessed to have the opportunity to participate.
We all enjoy:
· Attending the workshops with a variety
of nationally well-known speakers;
· Participating in the Eucharistic Liturgies,
including Hawaiian, American Native, Contemplative,
Celtic, etc.; and,
· Gathering Together in our Hospitality
Suite for lunch, dinner, wine and cheese, or just
to put our feet up between workshops.
The Congress continues to grow with each passing
year. I have been attending myself of the past 25-30
years. About 40,000 people attended last year. It
is the largest annual catechetical and liturgical
gathering in the world.
We would love to have more of our parishioners
at the Congress to join us at the workshops and
at our hospitality suite. Registration is taking
place now and for the next few weeks.
For more information,
don’t hesitate to call the parish office or
check out the opportunity to register online at
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
for Habitat for Humanity
