St. Pius V is an urban faith community composed of diverse people. Rooted in our neighborhood and with doors open to all, we gather to praise God, proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, foster spiritual growth, teach our children, and love one another. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we work for peace and justice in our city and our world. 



St. Pius V Catholic Church is located in the heart of South St. Louis City, in the South Wedge area of the Tower Grove East Neighborhood.  Situated at the corner of South Grand Boulevard and Utah Street, St. Pius V serves as an anchor to the neighborhood and to the thriving business district located along South Grand Boulevard.

St. Pius V parish was founded over 100 years ago as a church to serve Irish immigrants.  Today, after many generations, we welcome parishioners from all over the world.

Now, St. Pius V is home to nearly 500 diverse Catholic households:  a mix of young and old; families and single households; immigrants and refugees; longtime City residents and new urban pioneers; neighbors who walk to church and those who drive long distances.

​To be a member of St. Pius V is to be both part of a very local geography and a very global one. Hope thrives in this community that welcomes, offers solace, and grows relationships. There are abundant ways in which people of all backgrounds, lifestyles, and ages can participate in the spiritual, educational, social, and service ministries of our church.
