CHURCH OF ST. PIUS X UPDATE

Dear Parishioners,

St. Pius X parish staff has met and is working on plans to open for public Mass on Sunday, June 21st. More details will be made available as they are finalized. Virtual Mass will continue to be offered, even after Mass has been reopened to the public.  

                                                                                                       Updating Contacts                                                                                        In the coming weeks, we anticipate a need to share much information in regards to the changes happening at St. Pius X. The parish data base contains over 1000 families.  Currently, we have email contacts for just over 50% of these families. A fair amount of the phone numbers that our volunteers have been relying on to reach out to the parish, are either incorrect or disconnected. If you have not been receiving email updates or have not been contacted by a parish volunteer, please consider updating your contact information. Simply CLICK HERE to submit your contact information (including address, phone(s) number and email address) and we will update our records.                                       

Parish Office                                                                                                The parish office is now open to the public.  It is preferable for people to call ahead to see if their needs are something that can be handled without an in-person visit. Please do not visit the office if you have a fever, cough, sneezing or are feeling ill. Everyone who enters must wear a mask, and when inside, observe social distancing. St. Pius X staff will disinfect surfaces on a regular basis to ensure sanitized facilities.                                                                                                                                                                                                Individual Prayer and Reconciliation                                                      The church will remain open every day for individual prayer from 9 am until 4 pm. Father Russ will offer the sacrament of Reconciliation on Wednesdays (5 pm to 6 pm)  and Saturdays (3 pm to 4 pm) or by appointment, contact Father Russ directly at 507-517-4235. It is requested for you to wear a mask when entering the church.

Donations                                                                                                        Parishioners have inquired as to what they should do with envelopes and their weekly giving.                                                                                    -  WEEKLY ENVELOPES may be mailed to or placed in mail slot in the parish office door at 1315 12th Ave NW.                                                      -  DIRECT GIVING will continue as normal.  If you would like to enroll or make changes to your current donations, email church@piusx.org.              - ONLINE GIVING allows you to make donations using your debit/credit card.

Quilters and Those Who Sew                                                                    We would like to provide masks to St. Pius X parishioners who may need them. Those who sew may help your fellow parishioners by making masks and dropping them off at the Parish Office. Please indicate the date you drop off the masks on the bag. We will quarantine them for 3 days and then put them out in the church entrances , labeled one per person. Patterns can be found online. (These  are homemade, not PPE or clinically approved.)  This is a great service to many. Thank you!
