Catholic Communication Campaign This Week
Today, we are taking up the collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC). Your support helps the CCC connect people to Christ, here and around the world, through the internet, television, radio, and print media.
Half of the funds we collect remains in our diocese to support local efforts. Be a part of this campaign to spread the gospel message and support the collection today!
To learn more, visit www.usccb.org/ccc.
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.
If you are a volunteer, please contact the Parish Office to find out if you are Virtus compliant, as per the Archdiocese of Miami.
Compliancy for ushers and those who bring communion to the sick also includes an in-person Virtus training session and completing monthly trainings online at www.virtusonline.org.
Please let the office know if you need assistance logging in.

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.
