Whether you joined us for public Mass last weekend or are returning for the first time this coming weekend, it is important for all to carefully review the information  HERE  so you are best informed of the current plans to gradually welcome back our community. Please note, all dates and directives are subject to change.  
 
We look forward to the day when all restrictions can be lifted so that our entire parish family can be united. Until that time, we appreciate your cooperation, patience, understanding and, most importantly, your prayers.

Fr. Bill and Fr. Nathan
GETTING TO KNOW
Fr. Bill Schooler
We miss our "seminary home-school" students who lived and learned at the SPX Rectory recently. We prayed with them and laughed at their enjoyable videos. They worked so hard to help Saint Pius X stay connected as a community during the toughest days of isolation. And, it was a joy to learn more about them through the series called, "The Rectory".

Today, we turn our attention to Fr. Bill Schooler.

Did you know that Fr. Bill's favorite food is pasta and his favorite drink is Negroni, an Italian cocktail!

And, you may be surprised to learn how many parishes he served before we were blessed to have him assigned to Saint Pius X. Watch and learn more about our beloved Pastor, Fr. Bill Schooler.

MOTHER OF DIVINE LOVE PRAYER

The following prayer will replace the parish stewardship prayer at Mass until further notice.

Mother of Divine Love, we entrust to you our nation and world, our families and loved ones, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

In this time of trial and testing, hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful.

For those already afflicted, obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.

For those working to help the sick and bring an end to this crisis, obtain the strength to continue their work.

Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, conform us to the will of the Father, remind us always of the love of your Son, Jesus, and bring his peace to our land and to our hearts.

Amen.

Saint Rocco, protector against the plague and all contagious diseases, pray for us!
