"May today there be peace within. 
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. 
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
 Let this presence settle into your bones,
 allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. 
It is there for each and every one of us." 

--- St. Teresa of Avila

On behalf of the faith and education community of Corpus Christi, welcome to our website and welcome home to your school.  Please take a walk around our website, contact us and take a walk around our school.  See the difference and believe.

"Community is at the heart of all Catholic education, not simply as a concept to be taught, but as a reality to be lived . . . Your students will learn to understand and appreciate the value of community as they experience love, trust, and loyalty in your school and educational programs, and as they learn to trust all persons as brothers and sisters created by God and redeemed by Christ."
Saint Pope John Paul II


When parents choose a Catholic School for their children, it sets their children apart as a family so committed to their children's education that they are ready to make extraordinary sacrifices. Parents, by making the sacrifice necessary to send their children to Catholic school, show them education is a high priority. Catholic schools provide a loving, loyal environment where the entire community of parents, teachers, students, and parish is committed to academic and personal success. Take a closer look at our school and our site!
