St. Pius X welcomes Bishop Walkowiak and celebrates our patron saint.
Blessing of College Students | Coffee and Rolls
This weekend we welcome Grand Rapids Bishop David Walkowiak to our parish for the first time. He will celebrate the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday and join us for coffee and rolls.
This is Bishop Walkowiak's third summer as our bishop. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, he was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Cleveland in 1979. In his years as a priest, his assignments included ministry as vice chancellor, seminary instructor and pastor. Pope Francis appointed him bishop of Grand Rapids in April 2013. He was ordained a bishop and installed as the 12th bishop of Grand Rapids on his 60th birthday, June 18, 2013.
Blessing for College Students
Whether you're moving away from home to attend college for the first time, keeping it local, or returning to college here or far away, your fellow parishioners at St. Pius X wish all college students the best in your transition. College bound students can come to any Mass this weekend for a special blessing. Please join your parish in praying for your continued response to God's grace.
Coffee & Rolls
