St. Pius X Parish Mission

We here at St. Pius X Parish have embarked on a prayerful and exciting journey asking the Holy Spirit to guide us in refreshing our parish mission statement.  We hope that this new mission statement will help to focus us on God’s mission for us, inspire us to follow God’s lead, align our behaviors to God’s plan, and guide the formation of our culture to be responsive to God’s will.

All parishioners are invited to prayerfully participate in the development of this mission statement in three ways:  

  • First, all parishioners can provide individual feedback and submit ideas by filling out our online survey that can be found by following the QR code listed below.  Paper copies of the survey that can be dropped in the collection basket will be available in the parish office and at the back of the church.  
  • Second, all parishioners are invited to participate in a focus group session to provide feedback along with a group of your fellow parishioners.  If you are part of a group that would like to schedule a focus group session, please contact Deacon Scott at [email protected] and set up a time.  Otherwise, watch future bulletins for an announcement of focus group sessions that will be held after Mass in the late January, early February timeframe.
  • Third, we invite all parishioners to pray for this effort, that our mission statement development may be guided by the Holy Spirit to truly reflect God’s mission for us here at St. Pius X Parish.

Prayer of the Faithful

Prayer of the Faithful

4th Sunday in Ordinary Time

January 28-29, 2023

Presider  Jesus teaches us the way of mercy, peace, and humble faith in God. In the spirit of The Beatitudes, we place the world in God’s loving hands.

For the Church, guided by the Holy Spirit. May all Christians recognize the presence of Jesus in our midst. We pray to the Lord…

For rulers and legislators who serve the poor and voiceless. For all who fight for justice and peace. May they maintain hope in difficult times. We pray to the Lord…

As we begin Catholic Schools Week, we pray for young people;

     for Catholic schools and religious education programs;

     for teachers and parents;

     and for all who thrive in communities of faith, knowledge, and service.  We pray to the Lord...

For the members of our parish. May we hunger and thirst for holiness, work tirelessly for peace, and be counted among those who seek first the blessedness of God’s kingdom. We pray to the Lord…

For the sick. May they feel God’s healing hand. We pray to the Lord…

For those who have died, and for all who are overwhelmed with grief and sorrow. We pray to the Lord…

For the prayers we offer in silence.   (pause)   We pray to the Lord…

Presider  God of heavenly wisdom, you call us to live with the trust of the poor in spirit. Open our hearts and minds to see your goodness. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

2023 Stewardship



Metro Catholic Outreach


Metro Catholic Outreach is a collaborative project of the eleven Catholic Parishes of the Cedar Rapids Metro area. This outreach provides a food pantry, call center for referrals and assistance and emergency financial assistance to those in need in our area.

For further information, see the following link, or  contact Sean Lokmer ([email protected] or 319-393-4445)
- Metro Catholic website 



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 10:30 Masses.)  If you feel that God is calling you to serve your parish through this ministry, please contact Micaela in the Liturgy Office at 393-4445 or [email protected].  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!





Adults enter into full communion with the Catholic Church through a process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or RCIA. Those who have not received baptism look forward to the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. We share Baptism with many other Christian traditions. In their case, preparation leads to Confirmation and Eucharist as they enter into full communion with the Catholic Church. Baptized Catholics who have not yet received Confirmation and First Communion may also prepare for these Sacraments through this process.

At the end of this process, the candidate will celebrate with the Parish upon receiving Baptism, Confirmation and  Communion on Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday with their families as recognized members of the Catholic Church.

In addition, we are always looking for those interested in helping RCIA candidates along this journey home to the Catholic Faith. Whether speaking, hospitality, or mentoring, your living example of Catholicism is truly valued. Even if you are unable to join us for this ministry, know that your presence in the Faith can create a welcoming atmosphere to every parishioner.

If you would like to register, have questions or know someone who is interested in becoming a Catholic, please call Tony Lavorata at 393-4445x112 or send an email to [email protected].
