Commissions: With the advent of the second Vatican Council, much emphasis was placed on the role and involvement of all Catholics in the work of the Church. In order to provide more opportunities for parishioners to be involved in the activities within St. Pius X, the Pastoral Council has identified six commissions that address major areas of parish life.

Vocation Prayer Crucifix Program : This program has been developed to promote fervent and devotional prayer for an increase in vocations to the diocesan priesthood and the consecrated religious life.  This program offers a method that encourages praying for religious and priestly vocations in the Catholic families/households of St. Pius X Catholic Church parishioners.
The Vocations committee has provided a free-standing crucifix for this program. Families/households from the parish will be invited to host the Vocation Crucifix in their home for a period of one week.  By accepting the crucifix, the family/household agrees to pray for religious and priestly vocations during that week.  After the week has expired, the Vocation Crucifix is passed to another parish family/household after one of the weekend Masses in the parish.  The importance of praying for vocations is thus kept alive and prominent before the parish community. There will be two handbooks provided with the Crucifix.  One handbook will contain daily devotions for prayer and reflection.  The second handbook contains suggested prayers that can be part of your daily activities after the Crucifix has been returned.  To participate in this program, please sign-up in the book located in the Vestibule of Church.
