Welcome to St. Pius!
We, the members of St. Pius X Parish, are a Roman Catholic family of faith rooted in the Eucharist, nourished by God’s Word and faithful to the sacramental life of the Church. We are committed to welcoming every person we encounter with the love and mercy of Christ. We strive to imitate Christ in all that we say and do. We are committed to teaching and sharing the Gospel, to supporting one another in prayer and action, and to reaching out to those in need, so that, as a community of disciples, we can embrace our parish patron’s call to “restore all things in Christ.”
New to St. Pius? Read a greeting from our Pastor, Reverend Samuel Kachuba.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I am spending this week with my father and brother on a trip to Montana. I’ve never been to Big Sky country, nor have I ever done any fly fishing. All in all, then, this should be an interesting week! My goals are to catch at least one photo-worthy fish and avoid grizzly bear mauling. More than anything, I am excited to spend time with Dad and Gabe (who, because he lives in Richmond, VA, I don’t get to see very often).
ARE YOU THE FACE OF PRAYER?
ARE YOU WILLING TO PRAY WITH THE BISHOP CAGGIANO EVERY DAY?
My friends, I invite you to pray with me. I launched a new, social media, and web-based campaign designed to unlock the power of prayer among us. It is called “The Face of Prayer” and over the next four months I am inviting you to join this movement to encounter the mystery of prayer more deeply. To participate, please text your selfie, a prayer request, or simply the word “pray” to 55778.
Once you complete the registration process, I will send you a reflection each day via text that will include a call to prayer. I also invite you to save the date – September 23rd – for a diocesan pilgrimage to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. To learn more and to join us in prayer, visit the website www.thefaceofprayer.org as often as you can, invite a friend of two, and spread the word. Let us walk this exciting adventure in faith together!
WALKING WITH PURPOSE BIBLE STUDY
Enabling women to know Christ through Scripture.
Are you interested in getting together with a group of women to explore your faith and to see how the Scriptures apply to your everyday life? If so, we invite you to consider joining Walking with Purpose (WWP.)
The Walking with Purpose parish program at St. Pius X is introducing a new session this fall: Opening Your Heart. This foundational, 22-week Bible study is designed for women who are new to WWP as well as those with more Bible study experience. We welcome past participants and invite new women to join us!
WWP is a Catholic Bible study that aims to bring women to a deeper, personal relationship with Christ through personal study and small group discussions that link our everyday challenges with solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church. We will meet Thursdays 9:30AM-11:30AM beginning October 5 and ending May 3, 2018.
To order an Opening Your Heart study guide, visit http://wwp-store.myshopify.com. For questions or to RSVP, contact Dawn Carpanzano at firstname.lastname@example.org or Allyson Marcus at email@example.com. You can also visit www.walkingwithpurpose.com for more information. We hope to see you this fall!
