In the final week of our series on the Diaconate, we meet Deacon Lou Giovannini and his wife, Lori. Their commitment to and leadership at Saint Pius X is a blessing to the community.

We thank them for sharing their interesting story of how Lou, an entrepreneur, was called to formation to become a deacon. Enjoy their reflections below.

God bless them!
Remember to visit the parish website to access links to all of the outreach efforts Saint Pius X has offered during the coronavirus pandemic:


Christmas 2020 is just around the corner and at Saint Pius X we are working diligently to ensure we offer many opportunities to attend Christmas Eve or Christmas Day Mass ~ both in-person and virtually. 

Please, follow the link below and take a look at the many options we will offer for Christmas. Then, help us with planning to ensure we can safely accommodate all who wish to join us! 

Complete a quick survey, one per household, and let us know which Christmas Mass you and your family will attend. Thank you!

NOTE: Advent Wreath Making Kits will be available beginning Sunday, November 22.


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.

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