The ONE big reason to COME TO MASS THIS SUNDAY

Posted: October 07, 2016

Don't be like 99 percent
Jesus heals 10 lepers but only one bothers to thank God in this Sunday's gospel. 
The first and primary reason we are obliged to attend Mass each week is to THANK GOD for the gift of life here and in heaven. 
EUCHARIST (Greek for "Thanksgiving") is at 5:30pm Saturday; 8:30 and 10:30am Sunday.

DAY OF SERVICE
Tend own soul by caring for others.
Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016
This is your final invitation to share God's mercy at a local agency or within our parish during this annual event.  A few opportunities remain available.  CLICK HERE to register.

RESPECT LIFE
October is Respect Life Month "Moved by Mercy" takes its inspiration from Pope Francis' proclamation of the Year of Mercy.  Please continue to pray and witness to our commitment as Catholics to being "people of life."  

40 DAYS OF LIFE
From now until Nov. 6 we are asked to join other Christians for 40 Days of Life.  St. Pius X has committed to be on-site at the abortion clinic in Grand Rapids on Tuesday, Oct. 25 from 7am-7pm.  Sign-ups will begin this weekend...the schedule is for one-hour increments.
