Groundbreaking Ceremony on 10-23-17

140 South A Street in Tustin where our veteran homes will be built.

January 2018 Catholic Coalition Update

Corpus Christi is a member of the Catholic Coalition which is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County to build two homes for veterans in the City of Tustin.

The first volunteer opportunity at the build site was a success. The Site Prep Day on December 16th was a day of hard work breaking and removing concrete. Six members of the work crew were from Corpus Christi and represented us well. Click here to see the photos: Tustin Cement Breaking Day

The next big event is the Wall Raising which is likely to occur between mid-March and early April. Weather plays a big role in what date will be chosen and you will be notified as soon as the date is set. The Wall Raising Day is a big event and everyone is invited to attend. Bishop Vann will pray over the site and fifteen volunteers will raise the walls.

Regular build days will begin immediately after the Wall Raising. The Coalition build days will be the second Saturday of each month until the project is complete. Generally, we will work as Coalition members and not as parish teams – on any given build day, volunteers will come from all parts of the diocese. Our Corpus Christi team will have a build day just for our parish shortly after the wall raising. In addition to Coalition build days, you may work any volunteer opportunities which appear on VolunteerHub. Volunteer sign-up instructions can be found clicking on the “Habitat for Humanity” link on the home page of the parish web site.

Please continue to pray for the Garcias who have been selected to purchase one of the houses.
