Important Information for parishioners and friends of St. Pius V
In order to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, the Archbishop of Saint Louis has mandated the suspension of all public Masses in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, effective March 16, 2020. All Catholics within the Archdiocese of St Louis are dispensed from their obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice, pending updates and guidance from local and state government and health officials.
While the obligation to participate in Mass has been lifted, parishioners are strongly encouraged to view a televised Mass on Sundays or to at least pray with the Scriptures of the day’s Mass.

Pope Francis’ prayer to Our Lady, Health of the Sick,
to implore her protection during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver
us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
