This week marks the 100th anniversary of the death of St. Pius X. Pope Pius X died on August 20, 1914.

His feast is celebrated on the church calendar each year on August 20th. In the Ordinary Time of the liturgical calendar, the church allows a parish to celebrate  the patronal feast the Sunday before. We celebrate St. Pius X this weekend at all Masses. The prayers at the Mass of St. Pius X are prayed, white vestments are worn, our altar of sacrifice and the altar of St. Pius X are decorated for this festive celebration. At the end of each Mass, we will recite the Litany of St. Pius X and invite any who wish to venerate the relic of St. Pius X. Also, the cassock and zucchetto are on display for all to see this weekend.

(The Church, a number of years ago, moved St. Pius X Feast Day to August 21st.)
