A thriving parish like St. Pius V does not succeed alone! Hundreds of volunteers make the Gospel come alive in our community. There is an opportunity here that fits your talents. Lectors, ministers of communion and musicians are always welcome at the liturgies, both Spanish and English. Helping to cook for our many parish celebrations, for our soup kitchen, organizing skills for set up and cleanup of events, and working for justice – these are among the many gifts we need. Can you help?
