Young Adults

Theology on Tap – August 22,- 5:30 – 7:00pm

It’s the last of our summer series: Tough Topics  “Who Are WE in the church?”

Deacon Nate Haney will speak to young adults’ relationship with the church and our parish.  Pope Francis is very clear that young people “are the now of God.” Do we as young adults believe this? Does our parish at large make us feel this way? How can we support one another in the journey of faith?


When: August 22,- 5:30 – 7:00pm

Where: Last Chance Pub & Cider Mill, 2203 Montana Ave.  (We’re in the “Warehouse” room inside behind fireplace area.)

Great food provided, no-host beverages available, come and bring a friend!



Young Adults invites you to join in on a Hike & BBQ Saturday, August 24th

Meet at 3pm at Huppert’s, 3509 54th Street W. 

First, we’ll enjoy a family friendly hike on the Rims.  Following this outing we’ll have a BBQ and games at 5pm.  Come for one or both and please feel free to bring a friend! Food will be provided. All you need to do is bring your favorite beverages.  

If questions, please contact Ryan Huppert at 406-670-6184.



 July 18, the Last Chance Pub & Cider Mill Judy Held – president of the Catholic Foundation of Montana  discussed- Sacrificial giving—with all that is going on in our church, why should we give? We have school debts, new families, new jobs, how can we give? Good discussion! Thanks for coming and we’ll see you in August – still working on some details!

This summer:

  • June 1st Picnic at Veteran’s Park

Singles and families gathered on a gorgeous Saturday at Veterans park to celebrate the start of summer!











  • Books for Babies Service Project June 15 & 16

Books for Babies St. Pius X Parish Nurses and Young Adults held the first “Books for Babies” drive following all Masses, to replenish the book supply at our two hospitals newborn intensive care unit (NICU) and the pediatric’s wards in general.  It was a wonderful (and fun!) way to serve the families who are here with their children in either the Billings Clinic or St. Vincent Hospital NICU or pediatric wards .

Nearly 300 books were collected and delivered to both hospitals. To the right, center, is young adult Dr. Leslie Ruybal whose idea grew into this, what we hope to be an annual drive!

             Hike & BBQ Meet at 3pm at Huppert’s, 3509 54th Street W. for a hike (family friendly) and following that a BBQ and games at 5pm.  Come for one or both and bring a friend!
