St. Pius X - A Welcoming Catholic Community

Sacraments & Celebrations

Because people experience the world through the five senses, they need to see, hear, and touch the material world in order to experience the spiritual world.  Each sacrament uses a physical sign, a ritual, in order to bestow a spiritual blessing.  In this manner, the one receiving the sacrament can experience the spiritual gift through their physical senses.

Sacraments are visible signs of God's presence and grace.  Sacred and significant, sacraments are instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church.  The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated, signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament.  As St. Pius X, we offer the seven sacraments:  baptism, reconciliation, Eucharist, confirmation, weddings, funerals and vocations.
