Building in Faith Together


The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
August 15, 2014

Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Pius X,

Jesus Christ is the same Yesterday, Today and Forever (Heb.13:8)! Let me take this opportunity to congratulate everyone on their dedication of the Faith Center's Chapel of Mary, Mother of God. While every year in the life of a parish is special, 2014 is extra special as we celebrate 59 years of Catholic Faith with the opening of our new chapel which will seat 102 faithful. The consecration today by Bishop Frank Caggiano is a reminder of those who have gone before us, leaving a splendid example of faith, prayer and stewardship.

We truly give thanks to God for the parishioners and benefactors of today and in the past who have donated time, talent, treasure, prayer, advice and hard work to build up our parish family and facilities. As we pass the Catholic Faith on to our children, may they see us recommit ourselves to the work of evangelization, love of neighbor and a more fervent celebration of the Holy Eucharist. May Mary, Mother of the Church, intercede for us with her prayers,

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Reverend Michael F. Dogali
Pastor
