PASTORAL COUNCIL PROJECTS
Now that the roof on the main church in Tahoe City has been replaced, barrels with beautiful flowers surround the entrance to the church and defensible space has been provided around our Mission Church in Olympic Valley, our next project is to paint and repair minor woodpecker damages to the exterior of the church. The colors have been carefully selected. These projects are to help beautify our church and to present a welcoming place for our parishioners and guests. If you are able and would like to help with our current project, we would be most grateful! May God Bless You for anything you can contribute today!
Free: The parish has a stand-up basketball court bought long time ago when we had the Catholic School. It needs a new backboard and basket. Please feel free to pick it up at the back of the North Parking Lot near the Church.

MULLIGAN HALL FOR SALE
Dear Parishioners and friends of Corpus Christi,
I want to share the news with you that we are planning to sell Mulligan Hall.
Mulligan Hall, located just south of the rectory, was originally built as a private residence in 1958.
It later was used as a school, and then for CCD classes.
But other than storage, we haven’t used the building for many years. With the concurrence of the Parish Council, the Finance Council, and the Diocese, it’s time for its sale. The funds from the sale will be used on needed improvement projects at the Corpus Christi Church and Queen of the Snows.
Because the building will require quite a bit of work, we will be offering it at the very reasonable price. Someone with imagination will be able to make this 2,300 square foot property into something really special!
A special preview time is in effect until July 31 for you, a member of your family, or someone you know would be interested in a tour, please call:
Chuck Day at (530) 320-7600 or
Bob Ormsby at (530) 583-8200
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Francis Stevenson

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

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”
