Living the Gospel Message at St. Pius X School

Catechesis at St. Pius X School is a great responsibility and a mission for each educator involved with students. In addition to formal religious instruction, St. Pius X School students and their families work together on many religion projects through their years such as:

School Masses Live Nativity Scene

Students participate in Service Learning Projects throughout the school year. Every class at St. Pius X School plans an activity to interact with the community or those in need. Through the Helping Hands Service Learning Program seventh grade students participate in multiple service projects that include donut sales to benefit Covenant House; Thanksgiving Food/Can drive for St. Vincent de Paul; food sorting at Second Harvesters; support for New Orleans firemen and/or policemen; Christmas and Easter parties for the children in the nursery at Covenant House; cooking and serving meals at the Lakeview Shepherd Center and additional projects during the school year.

St. Pius X is open to all qualified students regardless of race, nationality, ethnic origin, or handicapping conditions.
