Word From the Pastor

Dear Parishioners,

We are very happy that Father Michael Kane has been saying the 8:00am Mass here at St. Pius X for nearly thirty years.

Save The Date

Saturday, August 16th at 4:30pm Mass
We will be celebrating
St. Pius X 100th Anniversary

of his passing.

Plans are in progress. This is a special time in the life of St. Pius X Church and our Patron Saint. Please plan to join in the celebration. We will keep you informed. A reception after Mass is being planned.

Volunteers Needed

As you may or may not know, volunteers are the life line of St. Pius X. It requires many, many hours by volunteers to make our Church and grounds run, enabling us to do the things we want and need to do for others. We ask all of our Parishioners to think about their interests and to ask how they might become involved. Perhaps we become complacent and think that we cannot be of much help.

You are wrong! We need you. The various ministries are looking for volunteers. Just call the office now and express your interests. Your call is important to us. What we really need is a lot of Parishioners doing a little instead of a few Parishioners doing everything.

You can make a difference!!! Call the office now 954-564-1763.

A Scripture Study Group is being planned for October:

“Enjoying The Old Testament”

(Additional info will follow later this summer)

    Scripture Reflections

    Christ’s parable originally addressed the problem of sinners in the Kingdom of God. The Pharisees believed that the Kingdom was for saints only; sinners therefore should be ruthlessly weeded out. But Christ didn’t agree, as this parable shows. The main point of the parable is clear: up to the last judgment, the Kingdom will be a mixed bag of good and evil.

    Later the parable was applied to the problem of sinners in the Church. Like the Kingdom, the Church is also a mixed bag. It must not play God by trying to purify itself completely through purges and inquisitions.

    The definitive separation must be left to the last judgement. In the meantime the Church must be patient; it must preach repentance and practice leniency. Mercy and leniency are an expression not of weakness but of strength.
