Adding a second Mass back on Sunday will require two things: FIRST, we need time to clean without the use of harsh chemicals, so 90 minutes in between the services is needed, and SECOND many volunteers are needed after the earlier Mass to sanitize for 10-15 minutes on a rotating schedule so that the later Mass is possible. Given this, with your support and trend of attendance in the coming weeks, we hope to offer Mass at 8:30am & 11am on Sunday later in July, if our use of the overflow space continues. If you want to see the return of a second Mass on Sunday, consider volunteering to help with the cleaning/sanitizing after the proposed 8:30am Mass on Sunday; please contact Nick by email or phone, 656-2522, in the parish office to sign up.”
Spread it Around! The St. Pius X Christian Service (CS) Commission is responding to a call from St. Vincent dePaul to provide 50 sack lunches for friends each Wednesday of the month. Why would we be excited about this? In Catholic Social Teaching, feeding the hungry is the number one corporal Work of Mercy, of course! CS commission member, Erin Buyske began thinking about how to spread this around so we could sustain this Brown Bag Lunch ministry. Here are some options for all to be involved. Through a link on Sign up Genius, (see below) families or individuals can make 50 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the comfort of their home or gather in the Fellowship Hall of church two times per month and create sandwiches with others. There are options for families to load lunch bags each month (all items except the sandwich) or purchase and donate lunch ingredients. There is also an option for delivering the lunches to St. Vincent dePaul on Wednesdays. Check the link for Sign Up Genius and start spreading the love around!
