Corpus Christi School
The name of our school, Corpus Christi, is Latin, meaning “Body of Christ”. The “Body of Christ” is a central symbol of our Catholic tradition. The word embodies something symbolic and concrete at the same time. It is the Body of Christ that we receive in the Eucharist that sustains us spiritually. We consume the host at Eucharist for God to be with us, as Jesus said, “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him.” John 6:56-59.
Corpus Christi also refers to the Parish and the Christian community. Many people comprise the single mosaic, the Parish: “for just as the body is one and has many members and all members … though many, are in one body, so it is with Christ.” 1 Cor. 12:12.
