Faith formation is at the core of all that is done at Corpus Christi
Catholic School. As part of the educational mission of the Church,
CCCS seeks to prepare children to be mature Catholic adults poised
to proclaim the Gospel in word and deed. The school’s programs
integrate religious truths and values with life. Its faith formation
program is always authentic in doctrine and contemporary in presentation.
CCCS incorporates all four hallmarks of Catholic identity into everyday
life. They are: message, community, service and worship.
Corpus Christi students receive religious instruction daily as part
of the regular religion curriculum. This instruction is given, not
only for intellectual enrichment, but also and most importantly as
the basis for a way of life grounded in Christ.
CCCS is committed to helping children to see themselves as members
of the larger community of the Church. Community is lived reality
at CCCS. Formed by their experience of community at CCCS, it is believed
that students will be better able to build community in other areas
The service component at CCCS is very evident in the school. As To
Teach As Jesus Did states, “The experience of Christian community
leads naturally to service.” Students participate in numerous
service projects throughout the year. In the middle school, students
are dedicated to a particular service project assigned to the grade
The school attempts to help students and their families to acquire
a deep appreciation for the vital role liturgy and worship play in
the life of a Catholic. Students participate in a weekly celebration
of the Eucharist every Wednesday. Classes take turns preparing the
liturgy and serving as ushers, sacristans, lectors and altar servers.
Penance services are held during Advent and Lent. There are also
other special services throughout the year. All students are required
to attend all liturgies and other prayer services.
Students preparing for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist
and Confirmation receive special instruction from their respective
parish. Each family is responsible for seeking out these programs
and attending them. For Corpus Christi parish students, parents should
contact the Director of Faith Formation.
