The Catholic Relief Services Collection

This week, we are taking up The Catholic Relief Services Collection to respond to Jesus in disguise. This collection helps six Catholic agencies to provide relief and support to struggling communities and to work toward peace and reconciliation among our marginalized brothers and sisters here and around the world.

Please prayerfully consider how you can support the collection.

Learn more at www.usccb.org/catholic-relief.

Volunteer Opportunities

Have you ever considered dedicating time to serve our Lord and helping your parish family?
St. Pius X Church is looking for volunteers to join many ministries. We encourage all parishioners to prayerfully consider service as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, Lector, Altar Server (adults can also help with this!), or Usher.

Other opportunities to help can be found in the Women’s and Men’s Club, by scheduling a set time of prayer in the Adoration Chapel, and many more.

Please contact the Parish Office if you would like to serve our parish community.

Cardinal Gibbons Music Department Concert

St. Pius X Church will host the Cardinal Gibbons Music Department Concert on April 30th at 4:00 pm.

Tickets are $10 at the door of our church and proceeds will benefit the Music Department at the high school. We hope you will be able to join us for this event!

Stations of the Cross

St. Pius X Church has the Stations of the Cross after the 8:30 am. Mass on Fridays during Lent. The Stations of the Cross give us an opportunity to contemplate the Passion of our Lord.

Virtus Compliancy

If you are a volunteer and did not have your fingerprints taken, please contact the Parish Office to find out if you are Virtus compliant, as per the Archdiocese of Miami.

Compliancy for some volunteer groups, like ushers and those who bring communion to the sick, also includes completing the monthly Virtus trainings online.

The trainings can be found at www.virtusonline.org.

If you cannot log in to take the trainings, please contact the Parish Office for further assistance.

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.

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 the parish office or you can make a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org. Thank you for all that you do and the spirit in which you do it.
