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.
Blessing of the Animals
On Sunday 7 October at 1:00 PM, Corpus Christi will celebrate the “Blessing of the Animals”! The Feast of St. Francis is 4 October; so bring all your creatures big and small to the church parking lot on that Sunday before, to be blessed in the name of this special saint who loved all of God’s creation!
An Oktoberfest will be held on Friday, October 26th starting at 7:00 PM in Fitzgerald Hall, sponsored by the Catholic Daughters of Corpus Christi.
Join in this fun-filled evening of music and dancing, along with a German dinner and dessert.
Tickets are $35.00. For reservations call Jill Begg, 516-294-6379 before 10/22.

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.
