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

Feast of St. Pius X

Our patronal feast day, the Feast of St. Pius X, falls on Sunday, August 21st.  We will be celebrating the Feast at all the weekend Masses on the weekend of August 20th & 21st.  We also invite you to come together as a Parish family to celebrate with a cookout at the basketball court after the 12 noon Mass.  Please RSVP on the sheets in the back of the church or email or phone us at the parish office.  We will see you then!

Volunteers for Altar Servers, Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, and Ushers Needed

We are looking for volunteers to serve in various liturgical ministries.  Training will be provided for each ministry soon.  Since it is a public ministry, adults who volunteer should be in good standing with the Church and be certified for Child & Vulnerable adult protection.  Please contact the parish office to volunteer and we will contact you.

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.
