About Corpus Christi Catholic Church


Welcome to the official website for Corpus Christi Catholic Church of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Established in 1901 on the Southside, Corpus Christi was originally an Irish-American parish, but during the Black Migration the parish became African-American.

Our mission is to build up the spirituality of our parishioners, strengthen the African American community and to help those seeking a church home through service and Catholic worship. Our doors are open to all who love Christ no matter of race, creed, color, social or economical stature or cultural background. Our goal is to reach out, by ministering to the spiritual and human needs of the community and to individuals seeking God.

It is through the teachings of Jesus Christ that we are called to go out and make disciples.

We invite you to explore our website and learn about Corpus Christi’s rich past, strong present and bright future here in the Bronzeville community of Chicago!
