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”
