Dear St. Pius X Community,  

The end of the school year is usually marked by numerous special events, allowing us to pause and celebrate the successes of the year as a community. Our most important year end celebration is undoubtedly the graduation of our senior class. While the pandemic has caused us to have to cancel many of these special end of year events, we are holding fast to several time-honored traditions and we invite you to join us.

Our faith is at the core of everything we do here at St. Pius X Catholic High School, and we will come together as a community for a special Virtual All-School Mass on Monday, May 11 at 7:00 p.m. This Mass will be livestreamed here . Please make plans to join us as we celebrate our school community.  We would like to give special thanks to our partner parish, Immaculate Heart of Mary, for allowing us the use of their sanctuary as we celebrate the final All-School Mass of the academic year.

Additionally, our Baccalaureate Mass for the three Archdiocesan high schools will be celebrated by Bishop Konzen and Bishop Shlesinger on Thursday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m.  This Mass can be viewed at the Archdiocesan website.

As previously announced, our Virtual Graduation Ceremony will be streamed during the regularly scheduled time on Saturday, May 16 at 8:30 a.m.  You are cordially invited to join us as we celebrate the Class of 2020 and their many accomplishments. A formal e-invitation and a link to the ceremony will be sent closer to date. Our Class of 2020 families will receive a link/download to the ceremony in a video format as a keepsake.

And finally, we are so proud of the Class of 2020 and want to properly celebrate their achievements by hosting a special Senior Celebration on June 1. This event will include yearbook distribution as well as special gifts for our seniors from the Mothers' Club, Home & School Association and Alumni Association. And we are making plans for a very special surprise gift from our faculty, who care deeply for this class.

We hope that your family remains healthy and safe during these difficult times, and know that your families remain in our prayers.  We look forward to the special celebrations to come and hope you will join us.

Yours in Christ,
