Parish Faith Formation Programs
“The Church has always considered catechesis one of her primary tasks, for, before Christ ascended to His Father after His resurrection, He gave the apostles a final command - to make disciples of all nations and to teach them to observe all that He had commanded. He thus entrusted them with the mission and power to proclaim to humanity what they had heard, what they had seen with their eyes, what they had looked upon and touched with their hands, concerning the Word of Life. He also entrusted them with the mission and power to explain with authority what He had taught them, His words and actions, His signs and commandments. And He gave them the Spirit to fulfill this mission.” - Pope John Paul II
We, at Corpus Christi Parish, understand our mandate to make disciples and teach them to observe all that Christ has commanded. As sons and daughters of God, we strive for holiness which will lead us to our ultimate goal of heaven. Through our efforts of evangelization and our many catechetical programs for youth and adults, we strive to create an environment in which we will grow in a deeper knowledge of our Catholic Faith and strengthen our spiritual lives.
Christ, who remains with us in His Eucharistic presence in our parish Adoration Chapel, is at the center of our parish life. Christ wants nothing more than that we be with Him as much as we can. If we are, and the more we are, He will not only make us holy, but he will use us as He used those in Palestine who, when he first made the promise of the Eucharist, did not walk away. He will use us as channels of His grace even to the ends of the earth and until the end of time.
