The time has come to say goodbye to Corpus Christi and move forward faithfully with our new parish, Our Lady of Africa. Corpus Christi Church will celebrate its “Farewell Mass” on Sunday, June 13, 2021, at 9:30 AM. All parishioners, former parishioners, alumni, friends and family are invited to attend. There will be a special presentation on the parish history and an architectural tour after the Mass. This will be a great time to see old friends and share memories of Corpus Christi. Due to Covid-19 protocols, please register beforehand by contacting the church office at 773-285-7720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be two more Sunday Masses after June 13th to finish out the month.
As we celebrate the rich heritage of Corpus Christi, let us also celebrate an exciting new beginning for Black Catholics in the Bronzeville community of Chicago. Our legacy parishes of Corpus Christi, St. Ambrose, St. Anselm, St Elizabeth and Holy Angels will be born again as our new unified parish. “Our Lady of Africa” parish will be located at the former site of Holy Angels church, 615 E. Oakwood Blvd. Let’s focus on a renewal as a Christian community under this new parish. This is an opportunity to build something new and exciting from scratch. (Continue)
