St. Pius X strives to work for justice and to provide caring service for one another and the world.
Social Justice and Outreach
“Our parish communities are measured by how they serve “the least of these” in our parish and beyond its boundaries-the hungry, the homeless, the sick, those in prison, the stranger (cf. Mt 25:31). Our local families of faith are called to “hunger and thirst for justice” and to be “peacemakers” in our own communities (c Mt 5:6,9). A parish cannot really proclaim the gospel if its message is not reflected in its own community life. The biblical call to charity, justice, and peace claims not only each believer, but also each community where believers gather for worship, formation, and pastoral care”. (USCCB)
The St. Pius X family identifies outreach and social justice as key components of its mission statement and vision. Specifically, St. Pius X strives to work for justice and to provide caring service for one another and the world. We do this by:
- Attending to the pastoral needs of our parishioners and others in our boundaries who are in vulnerable stages of life.
- Advocate for those in need in our community and beyond.
- Evangelize through visible and tangible good works.
- Build a deeper understanding of Catholic social teaching and a greater commitment to act for social justice.
