Renew All Things in Christ.
We, the parish family of St. Pius X, are dedicated to loving and serving the Lord and our neighbor. Following our patron saint, we seek to restore all things in Christ. We are committed to the eternal and look forward to the beatific vision as coheirs in Christ’s heavenly kingdom.
Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll established St. Pius X Church as a parish on March 12, 1959. The Archdiocese of Miami had just been erected a few months before. The permanent church opened in 1960. Our namesake, born Giuseppe Sarto, was Pope from 1903 until 1914, and was canonized a Saint in 1954. He lived from June 2, 1835 to August 20, 1914. His feast is August 21. A St. Pius X relic is preserved in our Shrine.
