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 to 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

EMHC & Altar Server Training Sessions

We will be having a training session for new Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHC’s) on Wednesday, October 12th, at 6:30 pm in the church.  If you signed up by contacting the parish office, or if you are someone who is interested in helping with this ministry, we look forward to seeing you there.  To serve in this ministry, be aware that it is important to be in good standing with the Church.  We will also be having training for new altar servers on Saturday, October 15th at 10:30 am in the church.  Boys and girls should have already received their First Holy Communion in order to be Altar Servers.  We will see you there!

U. S. Flag Retirement Drop Off

This is a reminder to everyone that we have a drop-off box in the parish office for old and worn U.S. Flags that need to be properly retired.  As you may know, U.S. Flags should not be thrown in the trash but must be given a proper retirement ceremony.  Our scout troop has done many such ceremonies throughout the years.  If you have any old and worn U.S. Flags that need to be retired, please bring them by the office during regular office hours and our troop will give them a proper retirement.
