Saint Pius X Catholic Church
We extend a warm welcome to all who attend our church. We hope that you find our parish community a place where your life of faith will be nourished. We also hope that you will share your special gifts with the community. Your prayers, your presence, and your talents are most welcome. Please introduce yourself after Mass.
We, a community of faith, have come together to respond to God's invitation to become holy by living the
Gospel. We strive to do this through our awareness of God's presence, our sense of responsibility to one another,
and our response to needs within and beyond the parish of Saint Pius X. "Love one another, as I have loved you." (John 13:34)
Thinking About Becoming a Parishioner?
If you have attended a Mass at Saint Pius X, we hope you will return again soon. If you are new to the area and are looking for a parish family, please consider registering as a parishioner by calling the Friary Office and making an appointment.
As you may have heard or read, Pope Francis has called for an Extraordinary Synod of Bishops next October on the theme: "Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the context of Evangelization". The Holy Father has directed Bishops of Dioceses around the world to gather input from parishes and deaneries as broadly and quickly as possible. The Vatican has produced a document with survey questions
that can be used to address their various areas of concern. It is not necessary to answer all the questions.
Our responses must be in to Norwich by December 12, therefore the St. Pius X Pastoral Council will host and facilitate a gathering on Tuesday, December 3 at 7:30 PM in the Bill Fortin Memorial Hall to select and discuss certain areas of the survey. The results will be forwarded to the Bishop's Office.
• The survey can be downloaded as a PDF file.
• The survey may also be taken on-line at: papalsurvey.com or SurveyMonkey
• A limited number of copies of the survey will be available in the back of church.
• Individual responses may be made to the Office of the Bishop of Norwich if desired.
• We encourage as broad a consultation as possible, so that those most directly affected will voice their concerns.
We encourage you to participate in this historic process as fully as possible. Pope Francis has a pastoral heart and is reaching out to many people whose life situation has challenged their full participation in the life of the Church.
