The Body of Christ

Latin for the Body of Christ, Corpus Christi proudly stands as a beacon of faith for more than 115 years.
Worship with us, weekdays at 8:00 AM in the rectory chapel and Sunday 9:30 AM in the church.
Our Mission Statement
We, the faith community of Corpus Christi Church, believe that God has blessed us and given us the grace to follow the living example of our Lord Jesus Christ in our daily lives. 
We are called by the Holy Spirit to build up the Body of Christ, to be united in a common bond as a
people who proclaim the Good News of salvation and who share God's love by ministering to others. 



The Corpus Christi Church Community would like to thank all who stopped by to visit.

Looking back at how good the Lord has been to us, how are we planning to give to support the church's ministry that reaches out to help all the children of God this year 2019.

The first Friday of the month
 The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed after morning Mass in our Parish Chapel from
8:30 am to 7:30 pm. 
Please find time to come and spend an hour or more with 
and pray for your needs in the new year and for peace.  

The Prayer Box
Prayer intentions can be sent to: 
Every second Sunday
the Prayer Box will be placed at the back of the church before mass.
During mass, the prayer box will be carried along with 
the offertory gifts to the front of the altar to be blessed.
After Mass, the contents of the Prayer Box will be destroyed by fire outside in the courtyard.
