At St. Pius X Parish, we as Catholic Christians hold the Eucharist as the center of our parish life and with this in mind:
We have a vibrant worship life at St. Pius X Parish. Our priest and lay leaders provide training on the components of the Mass and the roles of liturgical ministers. We have a varied music ministry that enhances our worship. We have many opportunities for growth in our prayer life beyond the Eucharist.
We promote lifelong faith formation and have an abundance of well-trained catechists. Our parish offers a variety of ways to grow in faith, including highly attended inter-generational Bible studies and prayer groups meeting throughout the week. These opportunities set our hearts on fire with God’s love and reflect the joy of living the Gospel.
We embrace stewardship as a way of life. We recognize our time, talent, and treasure as gifts from God. Through the sharing of our gifts, our ministries are filled with enthusiastic and engaged people of God and are fully supported by our financial offerings. Our parishioners are aware of how our parish funds are spent and our spending reflects our values.
We are parishioners of all ages involved in acts of charity, service, peace and justice in our community. Our presence helps those in need and upholds the dignity of all, while drawing people to Christ.
We are leaders of all ages and stages of life coming forward to share our gifts in support of our parish mission. Vocations to religious life and the priesthood are one result of strong models and positive experiences in our parish. Parishioners actively seek to develop their skills as leaders by participating in parish sponsored leadership training.
We celebrate our youth and young adults as integral parts of our parish. Our youth ministry helps teens develop a true understanding of their faith and the sacraments. They remain active as liturgical ministers and serve our parish in a variety of meaningful roles. Young adults gather to worship, learn, serve our church and community, and share in faith.
We follow a master facility plan and a process to ensure our parish facilities contribute to fulfilling our mission. We have invested in facilities and technologies so our campus meets the needs of current and future parishioners in a fiscally responsible way. Our campus is current, well-maintained, energy efficient, and accessible.
We are an active presence in the way we love and serve our neighbors, influence decisions, and grow in faith and numbers. People recognize St. Pius X Parish as a beacon of Christ’s light.
