Spring Fling Volunteers Needed

Corpus Christi Parish and School will host its annual Spring Fling bazaar this Sunday. As part of the parish’s largest ministry, Corpus Christi School actively participates in this fun event! This year classes have been designated to provide volunteers to work 9 booths in 1-hour shifts starting at 11:45 am and ending at 6:15 pm for parents to run. Middle school students can volunteer for service hours! If your grade's booth is full, please consider volunteering for another grades booth.

We need your help! Volunteers are needed to work the booths in the children's section. Please visit the following link to sign-up

Thank you in advance for your support!

The CCCS community supports the parish Spring Fling raffle with the sale of raffle tickets. A portion of the proceeds benefit out students by providing operating dollars to the school. This fundraising helps to bridge the gap between tuition fees and the actual cost to educate each student.

Ticket counters needed! We need help with counting raffle tickets on "Ticket Turn in Thursdays" in April and the last Friday of April. Join us in the Jones room at 8:00 for coffee and counting. This is a great way to earn volunteer hours! Thank you to the wonderful group of parents that counted tickets last Thursday!

Thank you for your support!
