Welcome to our parish!

Welcome to St. Pius X Catholic Church and School!  For 50 years now, St.  Pius X has been proclaiming the Gospel message and serving the spiritual needs of the city’s south side through more than 30 ministries.  We are a vibrant and faithful parish community of approximately 1,500 families, in a city named after the Body of Christ.  If you are looking for a place for Eucharistic worship and a caring spiritual family that you can call your own, we believe that you will find St. Pius X Catholic Church and School to be just what you are looking for.  We invite you to come visit our parish, where it is our hope that you will encounter the presence of the Living God!

Whether you are a long-time church-goer or a newcomer to the life of faith, we pray that your time here will be richly blessed and we hope that you will come be a part of our growing faith community.

Should you like to become a member of our parish, please visit our newcomer’s page where you can find a registration form that you can place in the Sunday Collection or bring to the parish office.  If you have any questions or you would like to have one of the clergy come for a visit, please feel free to contact us.  May God pour out his blessings upon you!

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Paul A. Hesse

It came sooner than expected!  We have paid off our loan for the New Youth Center and we want to celebrate!  In thanksgiving for your generosity and for God’s abundant blessings, we invite you to a party where we will burn the note and spend time in fellowship as a parish community.  The festivities will take place on May 30th at 6:30 p.m. in the Youth Center.  You will have an opportunity to tour the facility if you have not yet seen it, and be apprised of the next plans we have.  Come join us!

Feeling a little empty?  Spend time with Jesus!

Do you feel as though you are running out of steam?  Do you feel distant from God?  Do you enjoy your relationship with God?  We would like to invite you to an hour of prayer in the church every Thursday evening from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.  Come spend some time in the presence of the Lord in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.  You're guaranteed to feel rejuvenated and more peaceful after passing time in the presence of Our Savior!
