Corpus Christi History

Corpus Christi Parish, along with that of Susanville, Westwood, Portola and Quincy, is a daughter parish of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish, Truckee (est. 1870). It was established as a separate parish, as it were "left home and mother", in 1961.

 


Corpus Christi Church, the parish church, is located on California Highway 89, one mile south of Tahoe City. It was built in 1911 and dedicated on September 10 of that year. It stands on land donated by the Duane L. Bliss family, then owners of the Lake Tahoe Railway and Transportation Company and of Tahoe Tavern. Its building and furnishings (altar, pews, etc.) were funded by Frederick and Mary Elizabeth Kohl, of San Francisco. The church capacity was increased by the addition of a wing in the early 1960s. The addition of the present choir area, a renovation of the church and the installation of the stained-glass windows were completed in 1992.

 

Queen of the Snows Church, the mission church of the parish, is two miles up the Squaw Valley Road, in Squaw (Olympic) Valley, about 7 miles from Tahoe City. It was built in 1959 and dedicated by Cardinal James Francis McIntyre of Los Angeles during the opening week of the 1960 Winter Olympics held at Squaw Valley.

 

FROM THE PASTOR

On this Pentecost Sunday we have the story of Jesus assuring his disciples that they would be enflamed & enlivened by the Holy Spirit.  And through these many centuries, we have all been taught and we are all familiar with the Church’s teachings -- that the Holy Spirit enflames us with wisdom, knowledge, understanding, courage,fortitude, wonder & awe, respect & piety.  The Holy Spirit enables us to be people of joy & peace, kindness, charity, generosity, self-control.  These things are what we have called the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the fruits of the Holy Spirit.  Like the Apostles in our first reading today, may we find the same strength, the wisdom and the wherewithal to unbolt the doors, throw open the gates, to go out into the world and proclaim the Good News.

Parish Pastoral Council

Mission Statement (Approved 6/15/2004)

The mission of Corpus Christi Parish Pastoral Council, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and God, Our Father, through the light of the Gospel, is to help the Pastor serve his people better by investigating their needs relating to pastoral activities, formulating practical recommendations and providing assistance as and if needed to implement these recommendations once accepted by the pastor.

Parish Pastoral Council Guidelines

"The Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body, pastoral in nature, because it strives to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among God's people in the parish. A Parish Pastoral Council gives its help to the pastor in fostering pastoral activity; it investigates, under the authority of the pastor, all those things which pertain to pastoral works to ponder them, and to propose practical conclusions about them. It is essential that Council meetings occur in the context of prayer and openness to the Holy Spirit, so that at all times the common good will prevail. Specifically, the Parish Pastoral Council's purpose is to enhance the process of:

    a. pastoral planning

    b. developing pastoral programs

    c. improving pastoral services

    d. evaluating the pastoral effectiveness of various programs and services"
