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

Updates Concerning Coronavirus (COVID - 19)


COVID-19 Update 03-20-2020:


All Masses, both Sunday and weekday, within the Diocese of Corpus Christi have been suspended until further notice.  Here at St. Pius X, Fr. Paul will be live-streaming Masses every weekday, Monday - Saturday at 8:15 am and on Sundays at 10:00 am.  

Though no one is permitted to be present for Masses out of concern for everyone's safety, the church will be open during weekdays for private prayer, except during Mass times.  Sunday is still the Lord's Day, so we encourage families to gather to watch Mass online or on TV, to pray together, read the daily Scripture readings (found at the bottom of the homepage on our website), recite the rosary, or any other act of devotion to maintain the importance of keeping holy the Lord's Day.


All regularly scheduled onfession times are suspended.  Confessions can only be heard by appointment and will be heard in an open space.  All penance services are also cancelled.

Anointing of the Sick:

Anointing may only take place in an emergency.


Baptisms are postponed until further notice, unless there is a danger of death.

Holy Week and Easter:

Masses and celebrations for Holy Week are Pending.

Sunday Contributions

This is a very difficult time for everyone financially, but if you can possibly continue your parish giving, it helps us to meet our operating expenses.  Please click on the “Online Giving” tab to give online.  Otherwise, feel free to mail in your contributions or drop them in the black locked mailbox on the porch of the parish office.
