CHURCH OF ST. PIUS X UPDATE
Updating Contacts In the coming weeks we anticipate a need for much information to be shared in regards to changes happening at St. Pus X. The parish data base contains over 1000 families and we have email contacts for roughly 50%. For the parishioners who do not have emails listed we will continue to mail notices to your home. If you have not been receiving email updates regarding changes and Mass notices, we would love to be able to provide these to you electronically. Simply send your updated contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will update our records.
Parish Office The parish office is now open to the public. It is preferable for people to call ahead to see if their needs are something that can be handled without an in-person visit. Please do not visit the office if you have a fever, cough, sneezing or are feeling ill. Everyone who enters must wear a mask, and when inside, observe social distancing. St. Pius X staff will disinfect surfaces on a regular basis to ensure sanitized facilities. Quilters and Those Who Sew We would like to provide masks to St. Pius X parishioners who may need them. Those who sew may help your fellow parishioners by making masks and dropping them off at the Parish Office. Please indicate the date you drop off the masks on the bag. We will quarantine them for 3 days and then put them out in the church entrances , labeled one per person. Patterns can be found online. (These are homemade, not PPE or clinically approved.) This is a great service to many. Thank you!
Prayer and Mass The church will remain open every day for individual prayer from 9 am until 4 pm. Father Russ will continue celebrating Mass via the parish YouTube channel, (Daily Mass - Tuesday through Friday, Weekend Mass – Sunday). The Diocesan Mass is available Sundays on Channel 3 KIMT at 7:30 am and MyTV at 3.2 at 9 am.
