Cardinal Gibbons Music Department Concert

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

Stewardship

“Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us on the road, while He opened to us the scriptures?” LUKE 24:32

How often do we take the time listen and discern what Jesus wants from us? Are all our prayers always petitions, asking Jesus to do things for us?
If we only ask and not listen to what He wants from us than that’s a one-sided relationship. Living our faith means developing a personal relationship with Jesus. Just like any real friendship, there is give and take, each side listening to each other and helping each other out. Take time out in silence to listen to what Jesus is asking of you.

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.
