We now have an introductory presentation of the services offered by Corpus Christi Chapel which is received by email for those who register with our community. Those who have registered in the past can likewise read the intoductory presentation here.
The adult schola is looking to grow its membership. If you are interested in singing on Sundays with our schola, please e-mail Nicky Rutherford at [email protected]
There will be weekly rehearsals on Mondays from 6:00pm - 6:45pm. During rehearsals, the schola will prepare music for the upcoming Sunday. These practices will primarily aid those who are less familiar with singing sacred music and will help them become more comfortable with singing in an ensemble.
Singers with previous experience in chant/polyphony who are interested and able to sing more complicated music are also welcome. In addition to Monday rehearsals, more advanced singers prepare extra music on their own during the week and rehearse together briefly before Mass. If you are interested in preparing additional music on your own, please briefly describe your past experience in your e-mail.
Just a note to all that we placed land under contract back in June, a prospective 20 acre piece in Bonita Springs, near I-75, for the future home of Corpus Christi. We have been performing studies of the land and weighing carefully the pros and cons of the said property, and have extended the due diligence period until December 2021 so as to continue with those evaluations and determine more precisely the cost of infrastructure and adjustment of easements on the property before we make a definitive decision.
October 31st is the Family All Saint's Eve party for Corpus Christi families at Royal Palm Academy gym from 5 pm to 8 pm offered as a safe and fun alternative to the typical trick-or-treating.
This event is for the entire family including teens. Parents must attend with their children. We will offer a potluck-style dinner, Saint games, non-candy prizes, fun, fellowship and more. Older children will operate/moderate games for small children, plus have a special event and prizes just for them.

One of our parishioners announces the following: We still need a few more players to form a team! No hockey experience necessary.
I am excited to announce the (attempted) formation of the men's Corpus Christi Hockey Club! I am looking to establish a low tier team of like-minded Catholics to join the local rec league in Estero's Hertz Arena. I'm shooting for an entry time of the winter season (starting January 2022) at the earliest to give us realistic time to organize. No hockey experience necessary. I plan to start us in the lowest tier, so as long as you can stand on skates, you'll be fine.
- Best air-conditioning in all of sportsdom
- burn between 500-800 calories per game
- build solid Catholic brotherhood
Even though I don't plan on getting the team signed up until January at the earliest, please contact me ASAP if you're interested so we can start organizing. For men age 18 and up. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, gear, cost, or otherwise. Martin Krizan [email protected] 239-888-1225
