elcome to the CORPUS online community.

CORPUS is a faith community affirming an inclusive priesthood rooted in a  reformed and renewed Church.

CORPUS, celebrating forty-one years of service to the people of God, is one of the oldest reform groups in the Catholic Church, and is active in reform movements both in the U.S. and abroad. We are committed to working for a renewed priesthood of married and single men and women dedicated to serving God through the Community of Believers


It is the same when the CORPUS Community gathers to break open the scripture of our lives and be nourished by our common faith commitment to the values and principles of Vatican II.
We hope our 27th consecutive national gathering will set your heart on fire!

 14th Sunday in Ordinary Times
 Not Without Honor
The same God, who spoke to the exiles in Babylon through Ezekiel, who spoke to Paul in prison and who spoke through Jesus to the marginalized, reaches out to us in our own exile.  He reaches out to us when we no longer feel "at home," when we are uncomfortable with all that is happening in our lives, making us feel like a stranger in our own mind or body.

 Kudos To Cato the Elder

Cato, the Elder, Roman statesman and philosopher, started to study Greek at the age of 80. When questioned by a younger friend why he was taking up a brand new language so late in life, Cato was said to reply “Well it’s the only time I have left.”

 Spirituality and Practice
After more than 50 years of life in a monastery, Sister Joan Chittister asked herself some questions. What — if anything — of monastic life is worth passing on to others in our time? What does monasticism offer seekers who are already overwhelmed by all the spiritual and secular options available to them? And how can those outside traditional monasteries embrace this life that is both enriching and enlightening?
