Parish Mission Statement
Formed by the Word of God, and nourished by the Eucharist, we strive through prayer, education and service to manifest God’s transforming love in the world, as we work together to become, what we proclaim ourselves to be, CORPUS CHRISTI, THE BODY OF CHRIST.
Summer Mass Schedule
Corpus Christi is expanding our liturgical celebrations during July and August, with an additional Mass in Spanish on Sunday afternoons at 5PM. We will continue to have the regular Spanish Mass on Saturday nights at 8PM. The idea is to encourage the Latino community to celebrate the Eucharist on Sunday the Day of the Lord, when more people are off from work. Presently there is no Spanish Mass in all our area on Sunday evening; whereas St Brigid in Westbury already has a Saturday evening Spanish Mass. I’m sure you can imagine how dark and difficult it is during the winter, to come to church on a Saturday night. We hope that by September, most people will have shifted to Sunday Spanish Mass at 5PM, so we can phase-out the Saturday Spanish Mass at 8PM. Of course, we will always keep the Sunday evening Mass in English at 7:00 PM.
Vacation Bible School Registration is now open!
Corpus Christi’s Vacation Bible School will be open for children in grades K-5 and held from 1:30am – 4:30p.m. during the week of July 23rd-27th. This year’s theme is Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus.

Corpus Christi Goal – $101,000
Our pledges are more than half way to our goal of $101,000 set by the Diocese, with almost 230 families giving donations. Always remember that no offering is too small, nor too large, when giving in the name of Christ’s Mercy to persons in poverty. Thank you for the sacrifices which so many of you have made already. I pray that many more will step forward to assist our Bishop Barres in the work of the Church on Long Island.
