Ground Broken for New Church!  Together we are the “Body of Christ”.

My friends, on behalf of the Corpus Christi  Catholic community, I offer our sincere gratitude to all who participated in the planning and facilitation of truly a wonderful moment on the journey to making Corpus Christi Catholic Church a physical reality. The ground breaking celebration last Saturday, March 08, could not have unfolded more beautifully. Many people present,  phenomenally good weather, a prayerful compact program and God’s smile shining upon all who were present.

Thank you in a particular way to so many of you, faithful stewards. Your generous sharing of Time, Talent and yes, your Treasure, is what brought us to arrive at a milestone point for the Catholic families of South East  Edmonton. Thank you my friends. Together, we are  “The Body of Christ”.  Blessings and thank you.

Your brother in Christ,

 Fr. Jim Corrigan, pastor

Be a Mentor to Youth & Share the Joy of the Lord

 

Is God calling you to lead header img

We are currently looking for dedicated Catholic adults who want to minister to youth while having a blast!

If you are a committed Catholic adult from 18-90 years old interested in helping with either our Life Teen High School ministry (gr.10-12) or our Edge

middle school ministry (gr. 6-9), we’d like to hear from you! We provide Core members with training, spiritual formation, fellowship and fun, as we joyfully draw near to the Lord who is our strength (Neh. 8:10).

Some Benefits of being a Youth Ministry Volunteer include:

  • Growing in one’s own faith and being inspired by the faith of others
  • Exercising one’s gifts & talents for the sake of the Gospel mission
  • Developing friendships with other adults and being a mentor to youth
  • Core members & Support Leaders can request a reference letter
  • Experience highly regarded by Edmonton Catholic School district & helpful for gaining youth-oriented jobs

We ask you to prayerfully discern whether you are able to commit to volunteering with our St. Theresa’s youth ministry as a Core Team Member (time commitment of 12 or 18 hours/month) or Support Leader (approx. 5 hours/month) for a one year term.

Not sure if you’re called to Core? Join our One Month Challenge! This option is for adults 18 years and up who are brand new to youth ministry and want to discern whether they are called to Core before committing to a full year of service.  Time commitment is approx. 18 hours for just 1 month!
