“May grace, mercy, and peace be yours from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord” - 1 Tim. 1:2


Should you sometime visit us in person you will be welcome. Your visit will be a grace for us and, we pray, for you, for it will be God, in his Divine Providence, who will have brought you here. Our parish and parish church bear the name “Corpus Christi” – the Body of Christ; an affirmation of the Real Presence of Christ – Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity- in the Most Holy Eucharist.

For more photos of the renovation please go to the Parish Photo Album page.

Dear Parishioners, The renovation of the inside of the church began on Monday, April 8. The dark pews will be sanded down and finished with a lighter stain. The old red carpet is being replaced with stone and new carpet. PLEASE NOTE The weekend of April 13 and 14, Mass will be celebrated in the Parish Center (downstairs from the church) as the Church will still be undergoing the final stages of renovation. Beginning the weekend of April 20 and 21, weekend Masses will be celebrated in the south section. Please use the entrance to the rectory to enter the church. Renovations will begin in the north “original” section of the church, the loft, the choir area and sanctuary through May 24, 2024. Daily Mass will continue to be celebrated in Chapel without interruption. It is our hope to bring Glory to God through light and beauty to our beloved mountain church! Blessings.....Father Francis and the Corpus Christi Pastoral Council

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 1958-59, in preparation for it to become its own “stand-alone” parish operating all 12 months of the year. The addition of the present choir area, a renovation of the church and the installation of the stained-glass windows were completed in 1992.

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”
