Church services in the area were first held at the Celebration K8 School and then later in the Celebration High School cafeteria. The church was designed by Cooper Johnson Smith Architects & Town Planners. Groundbreaking for the church was held in November 2008, though construction (by general contractor Brasfield & Gorrie) did not begin in earnest until the following January. Pastor Gregory Parkes was able to celebrate the first Mass in the new building on the morning of December 24.
Construction of the new church was completed on December 24, 2009. The church was dedicated on Saturday, January 16, 2010 with Bishop Thomas Wenski of the Orlando Diocese presiding.
Today the church is led by Fr. Richard W. Trout, Jr., Pastor.

This is a beautiful house of worship to honor God. I have attended mass on Saturday and Sunday, and it feels like family. Corpus Christi Catholic Church is a well maintained parish. You can see the pride and love its priests, deacons, volunteers and congregation have by how well the the place is kept. The mass at 4 pm on Saturday is well attended, so come early. The 5:30 pm mass on Sunday is also quite full and has a wonderful music ministry. I loved to hear America the Beautiful sung at the end of the service. But what's truly best is hearing the word that feeds and inspires your soul. Thank you, Corpus Christi Catholic Church.
This church has been a huge blessing to my daughter and to me in our current times of struggles and homelessness. I made the golden and yellow flowers for The Virgen Mary during the holidays season to say thank you to God first and then to all the saints.
