RCIA

RCIA

Have you been thinking about becoming a Catholic someday?

Do you know of someone who might be interested in becoming Catholic?

Perhaps you have been worshipping with us for years. You may have served as an usher or greeter. Maybe your children are enrolled in Religious Education or in one of the Catholic Schools. We appreciate all that you have done for our parish and are grateful to have you with us. We invite you to consider the RCIA process that prepares adults for full sacramental union with the Catholic Church.

Sessions begin September 28th but conversation and registration is available now by calling Linda Van Etten at 393-4445 or send her an email at formation@crpiusx.org

Prayer of the Faithful

Prayer of the Faithful

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

August 20-21, 2016

 

Presider: Our God is a gracious God, who throws open the doors to the Kingdom to all of humanity. Let us pray for all people who are invited to accept God’s endless, loving mercy.

For the universal Church, especially during this Year of Mercy. May it present the face of God’s loving invitation to the whole world. We pray to the Lord…

For peace within and beyond our neighborhoods. May each of us widen our circle of care and work together for peace and justice throughout the earth. We pray to the Lord…

For government leaders at the local, state and national levels. May they turn to God for guidance, wisdom and grace. We pray to the Lord…

For the hungry, poor, homeless, and all who endure hardship and trials. For renewed hope and an end to their suffering. We pray to the Lord…

For students and teachers as they prepare to start a new school year. May they make Christ and his truth the center of their studies. We pray to the Lord…

For those who seek comfort and healing in their sickness. We pray to the Lord…

For those who have died. May they sit and rejoice at God’s holy table, we pray to the Lord...

For the needs we speak now in silence. (pause)  We pray to the Lord…

Presider: Merciful God, you extend your love to all people who are open to receive it. Help us to be compassionate toward those who choose not to accept your invitation, and to be steadfast in our own commitment. Gather our prayers and shower down your blessings. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

GET MORE INVOLVED AT MASS!

Ushers

Are you young, old, male, female, middle or high school,........... anyone looking for a way to be more involved at St. Pius?  Try volunteering as an usher!  We need friendly, helpful people who are willing to assist with the collection and communion at our weekend liturgies.  No training is required; we let you “shadow” an usher once or twice to get the hang of it.  After that, we’ll schedule you as often as you’d like at whichever Mass you prefer!  (Our greatest needs are for the 4:30 and 11:00 Masses.)  If you feel that God is calling you to serve your parish through this ministry, please contact Marianne in the Liturgy Office at 393-4445 or liturgy2@crpiusx.org.  Team up with your husband/wife, son/daughter, mom/dad, Confirmation sponsor, friend, etc., and make this a fun way to share your time and talent!
