FAMILY ADVENT WREATH PRAYERS
SECOND WEEK: PEACE
We gather around the Advent Wreath before the evening meal begins. As two purple candles are lighted, we pray, “Lord, we invite you to come into our home this night. We invite you to be the Lord of our home during this Advent season and during every season. May we learn to share your forgiveness and loving peace with one another. Our hope is in the Lord: Jesus is the light of our family.”

ADVENT GIVING TREES
Wrapped gifts due back December 17!
All are invited to visit our Advent Giving Trees, located in the hallway on the Burr Street side of the Church near the Community Room. Once again, this year we are collecting gifts for those in need and will be donating to 11 area agencies (including Veterans) who depend on our generosity to help keep their clients warm, fed, and hopeful. Please take some tags from the Advent Giving Trees and purchase the items listed on the tags. All wrapped gifts are due back under the Advent Giving Trees by the weekend of December 9-10. It is very important that the original tag be attached to your package. Each agency is represented by a different color and this is how we know where to send that gift. Our St Pius Parishioners are always wonderfully generous, and for this we are grateful.
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!

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.”
