Ministries

The multitude of ministries at St. Pius X Parish provides a structure through which people of all ages and abilities can channel their energy and direct their efforts for the benefit of our parish, diocese and community.

As we reach out to help others, we ourselves become enriched. Please review the ways to become involved with ministry efforts, either as a volunteer or as a participant. We offer three broad headings to choose from:

  1. Pray — focuses on prayer activities.
  2. Study — ways to deepen our knowledge and commitment to our faith.
  3. Serve — help and support of our parish family.
