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

We will be celebrating the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick at Mass this coming Friday, August 6th, at 5:30 p.m. We encourage those who are at-risk, or feeling ill, to remain home for your safety and the safety others. 

That Man is You

TMIY will take a short break once the current program ends on August 14th.  The fall program will begin on September 11th.  Continue to watch the bulletin for information on the fall program.

Save the Date – Farewell For Raymond!

Mark your calendar to save the date of Saturday, August 14th, to say farewell to our pastoral year seminarian, Raymond Pendleton.  It will be in the Parish Hall after the 5:30 p.m. Mass. More to come later.

Night To Adore

Join together with fellow Catholics for a special event on the Bayfront, called “Night To Adore”.  Night To Adore will be an evening of Confession, Adoration, and Worship in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament at the Cole Park Ampitheater on Tuesday, August 3rd, from 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm.  This is a huge event witnessing to the authentic presence of Christ in the Eucharist in our city named Corpus Christi!  It is sponsored by Corpus Christi Right to Life and Young Catholic Adults of Corpus Christi.

Acts of Charity

As you may have noticed, many of the Acts of Charity programs are getting up and running.  Thank you for your generous support!!

Another program that needs a boost to get started is the BEREAVEMENT PROGRAM.  This is such a stressful time for family as they try to navigate the funeral process.  We would love to be able to offer them a stress-free reception/light meal if they so desired.  This is where we need your help!  What the committee is looking for is:

• Volunteers to make salads/desserts and deliver to the parish hall.

• Volunteers who could be available during the receptions to make sure the food/drinks are out and ready for the family.

• Volunteers who could help with legal/accounting/general questions that can sometimes arise after a family member has passed.

Do you have a flexible schedule that would allow you to be free a morning/afternoon once or twice a month?  Can you bake (or buy) a dessert?  Do you have an understanding of legal issues that arise after death?  Is the Holy Spirit leading you to help this ministry?  If so, please contact the parish office, or visit the Acts of Charity tab under the parish website (St. Pius X Catholic Church: Acts of Charity (

Hands on Help

Are you a licensed plumber, electrician, general contractor or handyman?  The Acts of Charity Hands on Help Program would love to add you to our list of providers who might be able to bid on small home projects.  If you would reach out to us via the parish office or on the parish website, we would greatly appreciate your help.

Walking With Purpose Women’s Catholic Bible Study is back this September!

Do you desire to grow in your Catholic faith? Are you searching for something more in your life?  Would you like to connect with other women in our parish community?  Come back to community! We invite you to consider joining Walking with Purpose, a women’s Catholic Bible study, this fall at St. Pius. Weekly group sessions are starting Monday, September 13 at 7:00 pm and Thursday, September 16 at 9:15 am. Opening Your Heart, our foundational study, is designed for a woman new to WWP whether or not you have any Bible study experience; you are welcome as you are to learn how the Scriptures apply to our everyday lives.  Our second study, Touching the Divine, is a study of the Gospel of John and designed for women who have already participated in WWP and are ready for a more advanced level of study as we learn how to know Christ in a deeper, more intimate way. We will be offering both studies, meeting at the same time in the youth hall.  You will be able to register online on the St Pius website ( starting August 2 and paper registration forms will be available after all Masses on the weekends of August 7-8 and August 14-15. We do have a limited capacity, so please register early!
