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.”

Browse our website to learn more about our growing community. We look forward to seeing you!

FAMILY ADVENT WREATH PRAYERS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THIRD WEEK: JOY

We gather around the Advent Wreath before the evening meal begins. As two purple candles and one pink candle are lighted, we pray, “Lord Jesus, we rejoice in your goodness and kindness. With joyful hope we await the coming of your Kingdom. Teach us to trust in your merciful love and in your plan for our lives. You are our joy. You are the light of our family.”

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!
