OUR PARISH FEAST DAY
St. Pius X, August 21
Giuseppe Sarto was born in 1835 in the small village of Riese, Italy. He was ordained in 1858 and served God’s people as a curate (nine years), pastor (eight years), Spiritual Director of the diocesan seminary (nine years), bishop (nine years), cardinal (eight years) and pope (eleven years.) During his pontificate, Pius X confronted, challenged and inspired many critical issues facing the Church. He is referred to as the “Pope of the Eucharist” because he encouraged frequent and fervent reception of communion for all Catholics, especially children who had reached seven years of age. He established and promoted the practice of looking at the elevated Host while interiorly praying the words of St. Thomas, “My Lord and My God.” He reformed the liturgy and Gregorian chant. Pius X took as his papal motto, the passage from Paul, “To restore all things in Christ, that Christ might be all and in all.” He died in 1914 and was canonized in 1954. His will read, “I was born poor; I lived poor; I wish to die poor.”

Support for Vocations/Seminarians
Our Council has adopted a seminarian who is dedicating his life to the priesthood. As part of our support for his preparation for religious life, we provide him with a small assistance at Christmas and Easter. This comes in the form of a check that reflects what we have gathered through fundraising activities, and donations. For more information about our seminarian, you may contact Vincent Giandurco at email@example.com.

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.”
