Givecatholic For Tuesday - Campaign Alert!
The Archdiocese of Miami (ADOM) will host the 2nd Annual day of Catholic giving campaign on Tuesday, November 27, 2018. Giving Tuesday is an online only fundraising event that provides parishes, schools, ministries, Catholic charities and organizations a unique way to build community, connect with donors, and share the good stories of the many programs throughout our Archdiocese. Donations must be made by credit cards through our customized web link below.
Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season when many of us focus on the holidays and end-of-the-year giving. Last year, the ADOM received a great response from donors in support of this initiative in a span of 24 hours.
Giving Tuesday campaign raised more than $70,000 to benefit participating organizations of the ADOM. To participate in this one day event, please visit St. Pius X website link at www.givecatholicgt.org/StPiusx between the hours of 12:00am - 11:59 pm, Tuesday, November 27th.
Come! Join us!
Become a volunteer at St. Pius X Church!
Our parish is in need of additional Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Lectors, Altar Servers and Bingo Helpers as well as Holiday Season Decorators.
Many of our volunteers are seasonal and have already or are about to return to their parishes in the North, and other volunteers have found that sickness and age are limiting activities that they once enjoyed helping our community with.
We pray that you see a need that you can help with at St. Pius X Parish and that you are willing to commit time to assist us to continue our ministries or begin a new one.
Please call the Parish Office at (954) 564-1763 and we will be happy to discuss our needs and show you how you can be of service to Our Lord and St. Pius X Church.
Thanksgiving Day Mass Alert!
St. Pius X Church will be offering Mass on Thanksgiving Day at 10:00 am.
Please note that there will be no 8:30 am Mass or Adoration in the Chapel that day.

ABCD: Give and you shall Receive
Our church is a place to pray, to give thanks, to mourn and to celebrate. A place for us all to unite—in need and abundance—to have mercy, lift each other up and ease pain and suffering. A place people turn to in their time of need. We are all instruments of God’s mercy and peace. One church, one family uniting to help those in need!
We’ve received $55, 422.36 in cash and pledges, so far; however, we are still short $31, 036.64.
Thank you to all who have already generously responded to this year’s ABCD. Your support strengthens the ministries that serve our Archdiocese and allow the Church to form new disciples. As Scriptures remind us, Give and it shall be given to you. Your neighbor needs you.
You are the answer to someone’s prayers, and together, we are changing lives. If you have yet to respond to this year’s ABCD, please join us by making a gift now. You can obtain a pledge envelope from an usher or the Parish office. You can also make a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org. Thank you for all that you do and the spirit in which you do it. Fr. Biju.
