Our 2016 capital campaign, Continuing to Renew All Things in Christ, will help St. Pius X Church and School meet our parish's growing needs and prepare for its future by expanding and improving our campus properties or adding new buildings as needed. From this page, you can stay updated by accessing our campaign news blog. You can also learn more about the planned expansions for our parish.

Phase 1: Hohman Hall & Business Office Expansion

 Phase 1: Funds required: $2,541,135

  • The Hohman Hall Expansion will renovate the existing property and build a new property adjacent to it. A second story will be added to Hohman Hall to house our new Latchkey and Youth Ministry Center. The first floor will be used for needed storage space to reduce overall parish costs. A new, 7000 sq ft Parish Center will be constructed. Accommodating up to 299 people, this center will be available for parish weddings or other approved functions and provide a new revenue stream. For flexibility, this single large room will be capable of subdivision into three separate meeting spaces. It will include an industrial kitchen, a bride's room, and restrooms. A covered portico will provide access for pick-up or drop-off at the center. 
  • The existing Rosary Garden will be relocated between the new Parish Center and our new Business Office Expansion.
  • Our Business Office Expansion will include construction of seven additional administration offices that will allow us to relocate to the west side of the rectory. All administration offices will move out of the current rectory offices and into this new expansion. A new entrance to the expansion will be included.

Phase 2: Church Narthex Expansion

Phase 2: Funds required: $446,253

Our current vestibule is just over 1,000 sq ft. Our plans include an expansion of the vestibule to over 2,000 sq ft. This will give us ample room in the vestibule for greeting and fellowship before and after all Masses. We also plan to add an additional 1,700 sq ft of restrooms, an adoration chapel, and reception and meeting areas. This will increase the total size of the area to approximately 3,700 sq ft. The original boiler system for the church, installed in 1969, will be replaced with a more efficient unit.

Phase 3: St. Pius X School Expansion

Phase 3: Funds required:

  • New single-story building, $2,115,422
  • Complete second-story building: Add $1,300,000 (not in totals)

Our plans for the school building include a first- and second-floor expansion, amounting to an increase of 9,200 sq ft. Planned improvements include a secure entry into the school, new administration offices located on the first floor, a spiritwear store, and an elevator. New classrooms for our kindergarteners and first graders will be added to the first floor, and a junior high wing will be located in the new second floor addition. In 2012, we completed our electrical upgrade to the school which will power this expansion.

Capital Campaign Reaches Milestone

Pledges continue to arrive. We've reached a milestone by collecting our first $1M through your generosity and your continued commitment to making pledge payments. This is one of the primary reasons that we are poised to break ground on the Hohman Hall expansion in May 2017 instead of next year. Help will be needed in April to move items from Hohman Hall to a large storage bin so that construction can begin. Msgr. Funk, the capital campaign team, and the staff of St. Pius X want to thank all of you for your continued support and prayers toward this wonderful endeavor.

St. Pius X Vocation Prayer

In every age Lord, you raise up women and men who are strong in their faith and bold in their actions to give witness to the Gospel.

Fill St. Pius with Your Spirit and give us a burning desire to make a difference in our world because of our love for You.

Bless our Church with holy and courageous priests, deacons, religious sisters and brothers, devoted married couples, dedicated single men and women and enthusiastic youth.

We ask in Jesus' name.
