My Dear Parishioners,
The safety of our children
in our parish and in our school is a huge priority
Each parish in the
Archdiocese is mandated to have a Safeguard the
Children Parish Committee. The Committee consists
of parish and school administrators, school parents,
and parish members. The committee works together
to coordinate a wide range of matters relating to,
creating, and insuring a safe environment for the
children in their care.
The goals of the Committee
- To inform all parish personnel,
committees, ministries and volunteers of the available
resources for safeguarding our children;
- Inform all parish groups of the
Archdiocesan policies and guidelines on reporting
child abuse and neglect;
- Encourage all parish groups to
educate their constituencies on all aspects of child
abuse and neglect. For example, identification,
reporting laws, prevention programs, etc.
The Pastor is responsible
for establishing the Safeguard the Children Committee.
The membership is comprised of the pastor, the school
principal, the Director of Religious Education,
the Director of Youth Ministry, a faculty liaison,
and two parent volunteers.
The Committee is responsible
for making sure that all Diocesan programs, policies
and procedures are being implemented throughout
the parish, the school and its community.
The Committee meets
four times a year to identify and evaluate new materials
as they become available, to review current guidelines
and to disseminate and review the current guidelines.

in Pacific Palisades
has experienced an increase in its home-less population
over the past several years. In October of 2014 a
group of local people formed the
Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness.
This Task Force is made up of community volunteers
committed to compassionately addressing the serious
issues associated with the homeless. They have decided
to reach out to a group of experts that have experience
in empowering homeless people to rebuild thei r lives.
This group is the OPCC and our local task force is
hoping to work with them in trying to respond to this
challenge in our community.
We here at Corpus
Christ are have committed a fund to support the task
here to donate to the Homeless Outreach
