Welcome to St. Pius X Catholic Church!

We invite you to join us in our mission to build a faithful, vibrant, and welcoming Catholic community that is:

  • Conformed to Jesus Christ.

  • Open to the Spirit.

  • Rooted in the power of the Eucharist.

  • Enjoys the beauty of liturgical worship.

  • Informed by a deepening knowledge.

  • Encourages active practice of the faith.

  • Committed to reaching out in service to the needs of our world.

  • Sustained by a lifestyle of stewardship.

Effective Immediately, The Most Reverend Donald J. Hying, Bishop of Madison Diocese has asked that we suspend the public celebration of Masses throughout the Diocese of Madison.  This is effective through Friday, April 3rd.  This includes both Saturday, Sunday, and Weekday Masses at all parish churches, oratories, and chapels.

Fr. Dave has placed a recording and the text of his Homilies on our website.  The link below are the live streamed Masses in the Diocese of Madison.

As Catholics, the Eucharist is the source and summit of our lives.  In times of public crisis, people naturally turn to the Church for spiritual support and direction, and we need to continue to do whatever we can to support our faithful people through prayer, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (Privately), and the reasonable availability of the sacraments.  However, taking precautionary measures is a prudent course of action given the civil directives and the underlying health concerns.  The church will remain open for private prayer or devotions at home or at church, while always obeying the civil directives and following all prudent preventative measures as articulated by health authorities.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  We pray for a complete recovery of this pandemic.

A MESSAGE FROM FATHER DAVE

I am writing you a message of encouragement during this difficult time for our families, community, country and world.

With the announcement that all public Masses are to be suspended, I am sure that you are concerned and worried.  Please know that I am still required to say Mass every day privately.  When I am saying those Masses, I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. 

I am asking that in lieu of attending Mass, you would choose to watch it on television (Channel 3 on Sunday morning at 6:00 am or on EWTN).  You can also make a spiritual communion as individuals or families.  Take time to read and reflect on the scripture readings for the day, offer prayers for people and needs, pray the Our Father and then end with this prayer:

"My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.  I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul.  Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace you as if you are already there and unite myself wholly to you.  Never permit me to be separated from you."

St. Pius the X church will remain open during regular hours in case you would like to come for prayer and private devotion. 

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Father Dave Timmerman
