Prayer and the Eucharist
On June 6 we will celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi . This feast (in English, the "Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ") reminds us of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. It is fitting, then, that we spend time this month on deepening our understanding of prayer and the Eucharist. As Catholics, we profess what the Catechism teaches that the Eucharist is the "source and summit" of our faith. Join us this month and learn more about how the Eucharist draws us closer to God through both the liturgy and devotion. 

One of the best ways we remember the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist is through Eucharistic Adoration and Exposition. Adoration refers to prayer before the Blessed Sacrament present in the tabernacle. Enter any church, and if the red sanctuary lamp is burning, we can be confident that Jesus, present in the Eucharist, is there awaiting us! Exposition is a specific form of adoration during which the Eucharist is displayed in a vessel called a monstrance. Benediction refers to the concluding prayer at the end of a time of Exposition, wherein the congregation gathers for prayer and a blessing. There are opportunities for both Adoration and Exposition every month at Saint Pius X- see the opportunities below for more details!

Opportunities for Eucharistic Exposition (Benediction prayed 15-30 minutes before end of exposition):
Every Friday, 9:15 a.m.-5:00 p.m. (in the chapel)
Every Saturday 8:30-9:30 a.m. (in the church)

Eucharistic Adoration is available 24 hours a day in the church. Contact the Parish Office if you are interested in praying after-hours for a personalized access code.

This week, Director of Youth Ministry, Brittany Tull, helps share ways we can participate in Adoration! This is especially helpful if Adoration is a new form of prayer for you! Please consider taking time this month to pray with Jesus present in the Eucharist (see the prayer challenge below).

Spend 15 Minutes
in Adoration
Each Week
This month, our parish challenge is to spend 15 minutes a week in adoration. This may be before or after Mass, or it may be an extra trip to the church during the week. However you choose to pray, come grow in the practice of Adoration with us!



REMINDER: Weekend Mass will be streamed live at 10:00 a.m. on Facebook & the website:

A recording will be posted after the 10:00 a.m. is complete.

Holy Communion will be distributed to virtual Mass attendees from 1:15-1:30 p.m. Enter via the East or West Transept.

Note: Mass will no longer be posted at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.

*Any public Mass or liturgy that is live streamed to our parish website will be identified as such in the parish bulletin or on the parish website. By attending a live-streamed liturgy here at Saint Pius X, you are giving the parish permission to have your image appear on our livestreams and recordings. We will not focus on particular individuals in the congregation out of respect for personal privacy, but your image may appear incidentally in the background. If you have a valid reason why your image should not appear on these live streams or recordings, you may visit the Parish Office for advice on where to sit to decrease the likelihood of your appearing on camera.

Stewardship of
Saint Pius X Parish thrives because of the countless gifts that are shared by so many parishioners. We invite all parishioners to take a step in faith and make a commitment to share their talents and a sacrificial gift of their time with our parish and the community. You will find joy in the relationships that you will build with others in ministry, with those who you serve, and, most importantly, with Christ. 

If you haven't already submitted your commitment to Stewardship of Service, please do so this week so that ministry rosters can be updated and the ministry chairs can make their plans for the upcoming year.
