Mission Statement ׀  Councils & Commissions ׀ Pastoral Staff ׀ Registration Form ׀ Fr. Steve Memorial Page

We are pleased you are considering attending Mass at St. Pius X.  We are a large parish so we hope this introduction helps make your entrance to our parish home a welcoming one.  When you enter our front doors you will find yourself in what we call the “Gathering Area.”  Here you will be met by men and women wearing “Greeter” name badges.  Please ask them any questions you may have about your immediate needs: nursery, coat rack, restrooms, etc.

Our Sanctuary where we celebrate the Mass (or Liturgy) together is straight ahead.  We can comfortably seat 850-900 people per service.  On Holy Days such as Christmas and Easter we will provide additional seating.

Our Masses last about an hour.  Mass times will extend another approximately an additional 10-15 minutes if we have, for example, infant baptisms or an anointing liturgy.  We have a rich variety of music ministry so the style of music changes each Mass, each weekend.  We may have a full adult choir, a high school group, a group with guitars or a single individual who cantors.

If you are not Catholic or have been away for awhile and wonder how to follow and participate in the Mass, you will find “The Order of the Mass” inside the bound books found in the hymn book racks in each row of seats or “pews.”

You are welcome to wear casual clothing to St. Pius X.  You’ll probably see a little of everything so please wear what makes you feel comfortable.

If you have children we have a Nursery available at the Sunday liturgies.  The Nursery is located down the hall to your left as you enter the Gathering Area.

If you think of some other information that would be beneficial please send your comments or questions to email us.  Again, welcome to St. Pius X and may God bless you and yours.
