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

Public Masses Continue

We’ve begun  to offer public Masses once again as we move ahead with re-opening after the State “Stay-at-home” orders. Everything went very smoothly and those who came felt rather safe.  If you would like to join us for Mass, you are welcome.  Please note that we are only limited to 106 people (25% Capactiy) per Mass for the time being.  If you are feeling sick, or if you have any symptoms that are characteristic of COVID-19, we ask you to stay at home. If you have underlying health issues, you might want to remain home as well.  A dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass is granted to everyone through the month of June, especially those who feel uncomfortable attending Mass at this time.  If you do come to Mass, please observe the following guidelines and procedures:

Before You Arrive

• Be sure to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.

• Face masks are strongly encouraged

• Check your temperature before leaving your home.

Upon Arriving

• Enter only through the front doors from the parking lot on the Gollihar Road side.

• Please allow the ushers to escort you to your seat.  There will be alternating empty rows of pews to help maintain physical distance.

• Everyone should maintain 6 feet of distance between them, but families may sit together.

During Mass

• If wearing a mask, we encourage you to keep your face mask on during the Mass.

• Please no holding hands during the Our Father and there will be no Sign of Peace.

• Baskets won’t be passed during the offertory.  You may place your weekly gift in a basket in the vestibule of the church before or after Mass.  We encourage you to practice online giving.

• For distribution of communion, maintain proper distancing from the person in front and behind you.  Receive communion on your ungloved hand.  Step aside 6 feet, pull your mask down if you are wearing one, and place the host in your mouth and re-cover your face with your mask and return to your pew.

Departing Mass

• All are asked to depart Mass in an orderly fashion starting from the rear of the church while maintaining 6 feet of distance from others.

Cleaning & Sanitizing Procedures

• We will implement a cleaning crew to sanitize pews, seats, and bathrooms, between every Mass.

• We will disinfect door handles and other frequently touched surfaces throughout the day.

 

Parish Office 

Remember, we are cautiously beginning to re-open our offices according to State and diocesan guidelines.  For the time being, the parish office hours are Monday - Friday, 9:00 am – 12:00 noon.  As a precaution, we encourage you to wear masks and practice distancing guidelines while in the office.

Scholarship Donations

We are currently accepting contributions for our two scholarships; the Christopher Janosek and Emil & Marie Habeeb Scholarships.  The graduating seniors in our parish will have the opportunity to apply for this scholarship money.  If you would like to donate to either of these scholarships, you can drop your donation in the collection basket or make an online contribution.  The scholarships will be awarded at the Graduation Mass.

Christopher Janosek/Emil & Marie Habeeb Scholarships

All graduating high school seniors are invited to apply for the Christopher Janosek/Emil & Marie Habeeb scholarships.  The application can be downloaded by clicking here.  All applications must be completed and submitted by June 10, 2020.  No late applications will be accepted.  Completed applications are to be returned to Brandon Lutz.  You can drop them off at the parish office during office hours or by mail or drop them in the black locked mailbox outside the parish office if the office is closed.

Attention Graduates of 2020!

This has been a year of upheaval and disappointment for all of our graduating Senior Class of 2020.  The interruption of their classes, coupled with the cancellation of all the Senior milestones has been difficult.  Nevertheless, we want to honor all of our graduates and we are planning to have a Graduation Mass for them on June 14, 2020 at 5:30 pm.  We would like to invite all seniors to participate by walking in in cap and gown.  Let us honor you in a special way for your accomplishments.  If you are a graduating senior and would like to participate, please RSVP to the parish office at parishoffice@stpiusxcc.org or to Brandon in the Youth Office at blutz@stpiusxcc.org by June 5th.

Father’s Day Novena

Father’s Day is around the corner.  We will be offering our novena of Masses (9 Masses) for our fathers, both living and deceased, from Sunday, June 21st – 29th. If you would like to include your father, we will have cards and envelopes for pickup at the entrances of the church next weekend. You may also use the envelopes in your monthly envelope packets which are mailed to you.  Just mail them to us or drop them off at the parish office mailbox by Friday, June 19th. This year, for your convenience, you have the option to make your Father’s Day intentions online at https:// www.osvonlinegiving.com/1268.  The names can be included in the box on the same page that you make your donation. We will have a special blessing and token of love for our fathers when we are reunited at the altar of the Lord.
