Parish Leadership/Governance

The healthy success of any community relies on the active participation and wise leadership of its members. From its earliest days as a parish, St. Pius X has had wise, pragmatic and dedicated parishioners who stepped forward- sometimes asked, sometimes moved to volunteer, sometimes summoned- to work with the pastor and the diocese to create and maintain a parish that provides its members with liturgy, pastoral care, education and opportunities for ministry. The lay trustees, the Parish Council and Finance Council, provide governance at St. Pius X parish.



Parish Trustees

The Parish Trustees serve as the legal representatives of the Parish in cooperation with our Pastor. Each Trustee is appointed to serve for two years by our Pastor.
