We will be starting a new year long adult program called Catching Fire/Becoming Flame here at the parish beginning on Tuesday, April 22, at 7:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center. We will be using Fr. Albert Haase’s, (OFM) spiritual transformation program and materials to help us each individually grow “to become a little Christ sent to respond lovingly in service to the present moment.” The cost is only $15 which just covers the cost of the book. We will meet every week on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Call Jay at the office for more details.
For the second year in a row our St. Vincent de Paul volunteers will be hosting the neighborhood kids this summer for games, crafts and lunch. To host 40-50 kids a day we will need lots of volunteer help from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday. The summer lunch program will begin at St. Pius on June 2nd and will run until August 1st. All volunteers need to have completed the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Program. To volunteer or to get more information on the Safe Environment program please contact Jay at the parish office.
To help us with our June 2-August 1 Summer Lunch Program, we will need donations of new or gently used craft supplies, playground equipment and other toys. You may bring your donations to the church Narthex. Thank you, we appreciate your generosity!

Our parish started the FIRST COMMUNION PROGRAM on February 4. The program is on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. We began on the week of February 4, 5, and 6. We will not meet on the week of March 4, 5, and 6 but will resume the following week to conclude the six sessions on March 18, 19, and 20. Registrations for next year will begin in May. Please bring a copy of the child’s Baptism Certificate when you come to register.
Preparing for baptism is an important part of the sacrament of baptism. Our Deacon will offer a baptism preparation class in English on the First Saturday of each month in the Family Life Center. If you are planning on a baptism in the near future please plan on attending this class. The class is required for parents and godparents.
Our parish Respect Life Ministry collects infant supplies like diapers, wipes, bottles and formulas, clothes and toiletries for the new Aurora Gabriel House located on the Queen of Peace campus. Gabriel House is a ministry aimed at helping new mothers and mothers-to-be deliver and raise healthy babies. These items can be left in the new playpen in the Narthex.
