RCIA Starts in September! Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults meetings will be on Sundays at 9:00 am to 10:30 am in the Fireside Room of the parish office building. Invite someone to become Catholic, or a Catholic who needs to complete their Sacraments. Contact us if you would like to serve in RCIA Ministry. Contact Deacon John Amlag at (425) 775-7545.

SYMBOLON Part II: The Catholic Faith Explained All are welcome to Tuesday night meetings in the Fireside Room, June 24 to September 30 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm with Deacon John Amlag. The Symbolon series is a compelling presentation of the Catholic faith. Through beautifully crafted teaching and state-of-the art video, author and speaker Dr. Edward Sri leads a team of dynamic teachers who provide a clear and comprehensive understanding of what the Catholic Church teaches and how to live it. This is a great introduction to Catholicism for anyone considering RCIA, or those who just want to learn more about the Catholic Faith.

Young adults age 21 to 39 are invited to Mass at Blessed Sacrament followed by Theology on Tap at Finn MacCool's on Wednesday evenings. For details see the Archdiocese of Seattle Young Adult facebook page.

The Foundations of Our Catholic Faith is an Archdiocesan basic Adult Faith Formation program. Fr. Cal Christensen will be teaching one of the seven classes being offered here at St. Pius X.

Do you like working with youth? Are you committed to helping shepherd the future of the church? Can you commit at least 2 hours once per week from mid September through May? Are you at least 21 years old? If you answered yes we need your help! We are looking for approximately 8 middle school and 8 high school volunteers to help make our youth group at St. Pius awesome! If you are interested please contact Katie O'Neill at 425-775-7545 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. !

Our St. Vincent de Paul volunteers are looking for someone with a truck to help deliver furniture or beds to clients in our parish area. This would free up the delivery charge of $50 to be used on other necessities. If you have a truck and don't mind spending a little time & gas money to help a worthy cause, please contact the parish office. Thank you to everyone for your continual financial support and donations of non-perishable foods to the pantry.

We also have a mission to help homeless seniors in downtown Seattle with meals and necessities. The Catholic Community Services' Lazarus Day Center provides 2 meals a day and other services such as showers and laundry. We have been making and delivering sandwiches on the First Friday of the month for years. Recently a slight change has been made to the program. Lazarus now has volunteers to make sandwiches and would like us to donate the sandwich makings: bread, lunch meat & cheese, etc. They are also in need of travel-size personal care items. If you would like to donate something, please bring it to the Social Hall before the 8:00 am Mass on the FIRST FRIDAY of each month. Your contributions are appreciated.

St. Pius X is a Perpetual Adoration church. Please feel free to stop by any time to adore our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. The chapel is a quiet place of silent prayer and meditation. We are in need of a few committed Adorers in the Adoration Chapel. Please see the Sunday Bulletin for more information.
