Phase II - ST. PIUS X PARISH
St. Pius X has moved into Phase II of the Archdiocese of Chicago’s plan to reopen our churches.

  1. Phase II allows for reopening for weekday and weekend Masses for larger groups depending on the guidelines from the state and the capacity of the church building.
  2. Our utmost concern is for the safety of all, therefore, through ongoing discussions with pastors, health care professionals and civil authorities, there will be a review of the Plan and adjustments may be made according with new data.

Dear Parishioners,

Ten years ago I came to St. Pius X and Roberta wrote in the bulletin that I was 70 years old! I then said I guess I’m a new pastor and retiring all at the same time. I was only 60 years at that time and I couldn’t image how fast time would go by and get where did. Where did those 10 years go? They say if time goes by fast—it means you’re enjoying what you are doing. That must be true; being at St. Pius X was a joy. It is wonderful to be able to work, pray and celebrate with such wonderful people. Now I’m really 70 years old and I am ready to retire.

STATEMENT OF CARDINAL BLASE J. CUPICH, ARCHBISHOP OF CHICAGO, ON THE MURDER OF GEORGE FLOYD AND ITS AFTERMATH

May 31, 2020
The past nights I have watched in great personal pain as the pent-up anger of our people caught fire across our country. I saw the city where I was born, the cities where I have lived, the city I pastor now, catch embers from the city where I was educated and burn. Was I horrified at the violence? Yes. But was I surprised? No.

renewmychurch
All parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago are participating in an effort of renewal. Some may ask, “Why now?” since we have just reopened, there is still a great deal of concern for people’s well-being and we are focused on healing the racial injustice in our country. The most honest answer I can offer is that the opportunity for renewal is ever-present and is perhaps more important now than ever..
