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. Our mission church, in Olympic Valley, is named “Queen of Snows”, in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, and spiritually Mother of the Church and mother to each of us baptized into Christ.

Catholics Come Home
God, our Father, created a big and loving family in His Church. Jesus prays that we are one (John 17:21-23), as He and His father in heaven are one. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we wish to invite you to learn more about our family in faith: a Church filled with beauty, miracles, heroes, history, love and peace.
We will soon be announcing opportunities for you to participate in a program here at Corpus Christi where you can learn more about what it means to be a Catholic. In the meantime, you are welcome to visit: www.CatholicsComeHome.org for more information.

Restore and Preserve
Corpus Christi continues to need your support as we move forward with additional repairs. The ADA accessibility modifications at Queen of the Snows Church were completed mid February, 2007 and we began to assess the work necessary at the Corpus Christi Church, Rectory and Mulligan Hall. The assessment identifed the stuctural and other issues to be addressed. Foundation repair work has been completed, the stairs at the front entry and the lower siding have been replaced, and the rotted beams in the front of the church have been fixed. The paint and exterior surfaces of the buildings has begun to be addressed, but additional work remains to be done. Please consider how you can support us as we strive to provide services for our many visitors and to do so without jeopardizing the on-going operations of the parish.
