Reach to Restore
all things in Jesus Christ
We the members of St. Pius X parish are united by baptism into the Catholic Church. We fulfill our lives through Christian service to our diverse community. We promote a welcoming environment and encourage others to join us. We witness our faith by:
- Worshiping God through prayer, sacraments, and Eucharistic celebration.
- Compassionately meeting the spiritual and emotional needs of others.
- Promoting the dignity of all human life.
- Assisting the material needs of the less fortunate.
- Encouraging and utilizing the individual talents of all ages.
- Deepening our relationship with God through life-long faith formation.
- Fostering cooperative involvement with other Christian faith communities.
What We Believe“Our profession of faith begins with God, for God is the First and the Last, the beginning and the end of everything. The Credo begins with God the Father, for the Father is the first divine person of the Most Holy Trinity; our Creed begins with the creation of heaven and earth, for creation is the beginning and the foundation of all God’s works.”
—the Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 198
Catholic belief is succinctly expressed in the profession of faith or credo called the Nicene Creed:
The Nicene Creed
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Together with our liturgical design consultant, Rolf Rohn, the committee made substantial progress. We look forward to sharing more as we get closer to having firm creative concepts.
On September 27, 2015, Monsignor Moroney met with the Rebuilding Committee to review all the initial feedback from all the listening sessions and talked about a path forward with the building of our new church building. Monsignor has gracefully recorded his consultation presentation for us and can be found below.
