Feast of Corpus Christi
In 2014, under the direction of Father Phil, St. Pius X began it’s own tradition of a Corpus Christi Procession and Celebration. The parish journeyed to four altars, decorated by different mini faith families within the parish. Thanks to the following for decorating the altars: Vacation Bible School, Monday night Prayer Group, CHRP and Ultreya![No videos found]
Vacation Bible School
Each year in June, our parish looks forward to a week long journey with our friend Jesus through our Bible School program. We are always in need of volunteers and items to be used through the week. If you are interested in helping or would like your child to attend, contact the Parish Office. It is a wonderful week and we need you!
The parish picnic is held the Sunday after Labor Day every year. Mass is at 11:00 am in the Knights of Columbus Shelter house in Paradise Park. Following mass is a carry in lunch in the Knights of Columbus Hall. There are games and activities for the children, and plenty of good food and fellowship for all!
The Ladies Luncheon is held on the third Wednesday of every month in the St. Pius X Undercroft. The ladies gather at 12:00 noon for Mass, followed by a carry in lunch. After lunch the ladies enjoy visiting and playing cards. All are welcome! For more information contact the parish office.

What a Blessed Activity! We are fortunate to have our Adoration Chapel open 24 hours a day here at St. Pius X. This program started during Lent in 2003and is a wonderful way to show our Blessed Mother how much we love her son, by sharing a small portion of our week by his side.
