All Saints Day Nov 1st vs All Souls Day Nov 2nd
On November 1, we celebrate the Solemnity of All Saints, a time to pause and reflect on all those holy women and men who have come before us — and who live among us. We recognize that as one People of God, we go to God together, praying for one another, learning from the example, the wisdom of those who have lived the Gospel.
November 2 is the Commemoration of All of the Faithful Departed, or All Souls. On this day, we pray that all those who have died— our loved ones, and also those people around the world who we will never meet— through the mercy of God, will rest in peace.
On Friday, Nov 2nd at 7 pm in Church St Pius Tenth will host an evening of prayer for all those who have lost a loved one this year. If you have had a death in the family you are welcome to attend.
This week at Youth Nite, Nov 4th: God’s Revelation to His People
How is God’s presence revealed to humanity? How is God’s presence revealed in your life? It’s not enough to know about God—we need to know and love God to be transformed. It’s time to go deeper in our relationship with God.

The Hands of Christ Recognition
The Hands of Christ is a recognition program created by the Diocese of Rochester to assist parishes in affirming their high school seniors who have been the “Hands of Christ” in their church, home, school and community, sponsored by the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis. Recognized seniors are invited to receive a plaque from the Most Reverend Bishop Salvatore R. Matano at one of three special Recognition Ceremonies to be held in February 2019. This year St Pius X Church is honored to host one of these Recognition Ceremonies.
The Criteria to receive this very special recognition:
- Is currently a high school senior.
- Has consistently demonstrated a Christian attitude by word and example.
- Has been actively involved in the parish as well as their school or community.
- Has been a positive role model to their peers, younger children and adults.
- Is a practicing Roman Catholic in a parish in the Diocese of Rochester and attends Mass.

Parish Fall Clean Up Saturday, November 10
Please join Troop 178 on Saturday, November 10th starting at 9:00 a.m.
for the annual Fall Cleanup on the grounds of Saint Pius X.
Everyone is welcome to come and help out; there is always plenty to do.
Please bring rakes, gloves and tarps (and leaf blowers if you have them).
The Boy Scouts in conjunction with the St Pius X Federal Credit Union will provide a picnic lunch.
Please come out to help our Parish and enjoy some fellowship with fellow parishioners.
This is also a great opportunity for youth who need to earn community service hours for school. (It usually amounts to 3-4 hours of service for the day.)
No sign up necessary, just show up!
As well as an opportunity use your gifts and talents in service as part of the Confirmation Prerequisite Program.
Apple Pies for Veterans on Veterans Day! MONDAY Nov 12
The St Pius X youth are invited to come together at St Pius School on Veterans Day (Monday, Nov 12, 9-Noon) to make apple pies to give as a Thank You to a Veteran. Each teen will bring the ingredients for 1 pie and we’ll work together to make pies to thank Veterans for their service. Do you know a vet? You can take your pie home & give it to them. Don’t know a Vet? Help deliver pies to the VFW in Chili!
