Read the daily quote from Pope Francis


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
