Welcome to the St. Pius V Parish Website - I am glad you found our site on the web and I hope that you find the information you are looking for about our parish family in this website. Feel free to share any comments or questions that might be on your mind through our online guest book.
As a Catholic Christian community of faith firmly rooted in Jesus Christ, these are our core values:
We value active participation in Eucharist, prayer, and sacramental life - we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly or Sunday Masses.
We value all life and have particular concern for the poor, vulnerable, and disenfranchised. Our parish offers and supports ministries and services to refugees and immigrants, to the sick and grieving, to the poor and those in need, and many others.
We value quality Catholic education for our children. We are proud supporters of St. Frances Cabrini Academy, our parish's Catholic school, and the South City Regional Parish School of Religion.
We value good stewardship of our time, talent, and treasure. God has blessed our parish family, and our parishioners are encouraged to show their gratitude to God for his blessings by sharing from what God has given them.
We value a worshipping community which is open and welcome to all. We are a vibrant, diverse, urban community of faith, and we welcome all to worship with us and to journey in faith with us.
We value creating and caring for a sacred space that enhances our connection to God and to one another. Our parish is over 100 years old, and our Parish Church on South Grand Boulevard has stood for 90 years. This sacred place has been hallowed ground for generations of Catholics. We respect our heritage and plan for a bright future.
We value our neighborhood and see ourselves as a prominent beacon of hope for a city in transition. Our parishioners are committed to the City of St. Louis and to our neighborhood, and to making them hospitable, welcoming, and safe. St. Pius V is a proud member of Metropolitan Congregations United and works with many neighborhood organizations to insure the vitality of this area.
I hope that our core values strike a chord with many of you and that you join us as we journey in faith. Please know that you are always welcome at St. Pius V. Feel free at any time to call on me or on one of our Pastoral Associates. In the meantime, may the Holy Spirit guide you on your way.
Rev. John Rogers Vien, Pastor
