Welcome to our parish!

Welcome to St. Pius X Catholic Church and School! For over 50 years now, St. Pius X Parish 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 sound 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 dynamic 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

Training for new Altar Servers

We have had a tremendous response for new Altar Servers!  There is quite a bit of information for the new servers to absorb.  We have found that it generally takes going through the training three or four times before everything starts to ‘click’ for the kids.  There are 4 training sessions left during the month of October.  Our expectation is that each new Altar Server will come to at least three of these training sessions.  After completing a minimum of three training sessions, the new server will be put on the next Altar Servers’ Schedule, which begins in November.

Here are the dates and times you can pick from:

Saturday, October 21st, 11:00 AM

Tuesday, October 24th, 5:30 PM

Thursday, October 26th, 5:30 PM

Attention Middle School Parents

Do you ever worry about your kids?  Worry about the world they are growing up in?  Do you wonder if they will be guided by God and make prudent decisions?  The world is a far different place than it was just 30 years ago.  Kids are bombarded with media that promotes a disordered view of love, identity, sexuality, and the dignity of our human nature.  It can seem bleak at times.  But there is good news….within the darkness, God’s light always shines through.  He wants us, and our children, to know His Truth about love, identity and sexuality.  Theology of the Body for Middle School is now being offered on Sunday mornings:  Oct 29 thru Dec 17th at 9:30-11:00 a.m. to register contact:
