Welcome to the faith Community of St. Pius X. We appreciate your desire to be part of our Christian family, and to join us in our pilgrim journey. We look forward to supporting you in your faith life, and we are excited about how your gifts and talents might enrich the spirit of our community.
Of course, in order for both of us to benefit, you must do more than just register in the parish. That is only the first step. We need your presence regularly at Sunday liturgy so that our prayer might be fuller; your talents, so that our faith might be more active; and your ideas, so that our enthusiasm may be renewed. As in any family, you have responsibilities as well as benefits. We pray you will be a truly active member of the family, so that both you and the parish may benefit fully.
Your name will be added to the mailing list to receive monthly packets of envelopes, beginning in six to eight weeks. In the meantime, the temporary envelopes available in the pews in church envelopes may be used for your contributions. Please note your name and address in the space provided on the envelope.
There are many blessing that can be yours only through the Community we call Church. I pray that St. Pius X Church may be the channel of love and acceptance that Christ wants to enjoy in this life, and that it will lead you to eternal happiness. For all our members, may I say, “we are happy you are one of us.”
Rev. Baiju Kidaagen, V.C.
What We Believe As A Catholic Community
Perhaps the earliest compilation of what we as Catholics believe is found in the Apostle’s Creed. While not wanting to repeat the Creed verbatim, here are some of the highlights:
We believe in God as Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to us “in the flesh” through the power of the Holy Spirit and the cooperation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
We believe in the holy Catholic (universal) church,
the communion of saints - that the baptized on earth are “in communion” with all the saints of heaven as well as with those who have died and remain in need of our prayers to attain the fullness of heaven,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body – that our whole self, body and soul, is destined for life everlasting.
Interested In Joining Our Faith Or Parish?
A parish is a community of believers and a spiritual family that is supportive and loving. It can be a place to grow spiritually, to put your faith in action, and to use our gifts of time and talent as disciples of Christ. We look forward to answering any questions you may have. In the meantime, please look through the information we’ve made available on our resources page or click below to get in touch with someone from our parish staff.
What Should I Expect As A Visitor?
Length of Mass: The celebration of Sunday Mass usually lasts from 45 to 60 minutes. You are encouraged to stay until the priest and other ministers process out of church. Weekday masses usually last 30 minutes or less.
Dress: As a visitor, you are our honored guest — please dress as you are comfortable. We encourage respectful dress for Mass that helps us embody the idea that Mass is the highpoint of our week. Worshipers tend to be more formally dressed for 9:30am and 11:30am Sunday morning Mass.
Communion: Roman Catholics not in a state of serious sin are welcome to join us in Communion. If you’re Catholic and not sure about receiving communion, make time for the healing sacrament of reconciliation.
Handicap Access: Handicapped parking is available to the right of the church in the school parking lot.
Seating: You are welcome to sit anywhere. Pews on the front left of the church have additional space for wheelchairs. Two extra wheelchairs are available.
