Greetings in the name of Christ!
Welcome to the website of
the Order of Corpus Christi.
The brothers and sisters of the Order are clergy and laity from a variety of Christian communions and live and serve in settings across the United States and Western Europe.
We the Order of Corpus Christi, consistent with our aspirations to be leaven in the loaf of the church catholic and true to the Great Commandments of our Lord Jesus Christ, covenant to affirm and welcome all members of the Body of Christ without regard to their race, class, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
In our various ministry settings, we are committed to living out our shared commitment to be leaven in the loaf so that individual lives are transformed into the Body of Christ through:
disciplined daily prayer,
shared Ecumenical Creeds,
Baptism in the Triune Name,
the mystical presence of Christ in the Eucharist,
life in community,
the church reformed and reforming.
Once each year, we gather in Retreat to live as a cloistered monastic community for three days. During this time we pray the liturgy of the hours together, share daily Eucharist, discus our common study books and strengthen new and long-term relationships.
This website provides much more information about the Order of Corpus Christi, I encourage you to look it over and if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact me.
May the blessings of God: Creator, Christ and Holy Spirit, be with you and remain with you always.
On the journey,
