Hundreds gathered at Corpus Christi Church recently to celebrate the parish's 100th anniversary:
"Remember your history," began Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, in his homily as he celebrated Mass. 
The Mass, followed by a procession of the Blessed Sacrament and luncheon for nearly 600, came at the end of a weekend of festivities and gathering of the faithful to celebrate 100 years of blessings and community at the parish, known for its multi-ethnic and immigrant make-up. 
Pastor Father Bruce-John Hamilton said he was blessed to be in a parish where parishioners are ready to "give so much of themselves."
