St. Pius X Parish participates in a number of recognized Catholic and community programs by either operating a parish-based chapter of the organization or conducting a ministry that helps in supporting the programs' objectives.
Walking with Purpose
Walking with Purpose is a women’s Catholic Bible study. The program aims to bring women into a closer relationship with Christ. Personal study and small group discussions are held each week to link our everyday challenges with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church. This program's content and small-group discussion format have been designed for women who are college-age and older. An important component of Walking with Purpose is to build Christ's community through regular engagement with each other. If you have more questions, please contact our coordinator.

That Man is You
That Man is You! is a multi-year program that addresses the pressures and temptations that men face in our modern culture, especially those relating to their roles as husbands and fathers. The program harmonizes current social and medical science with the teachings of the Catholic Church and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of man fully alive. Semester-long programs are developed for men age 18 and over and are focused upon a particular theme. Semesters last from 22-26 weeks. Building Christ's community through regular and consistent engagement is an important component of the overall program. For more information, please contact us.

St. Vincent de Paul Society
We are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need and who believe that service to those in need is an encounter with Jesus Christ. We are part of an international society of friends united by a spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection. Men and women age 18 and over are invited to join our mission. Monthly meetings are held from 7:00-8:00 PM on the second Tuesday throughout the year in the Bride's Room of the church.

Located at 240 Outerbelt Street in Columbus, Joseph’s Coat of Ohio provides clothing, personal care items, household goods, and furniture to those in need within our community. St. Pius X works ecumenically with other eastside congregations including Eastpointe Christian Church, Messiah Lutheran, Parkview Presbyterian, and Reynoldsburg United Methodist Church to provide donations, items and volunteer support. Help is always needed during warehouse hours. Adults and youth can serve by helping clients "shop" for items, sorting clothing, or cleaning the facility. Need is particularly high for those who can move furniture in and out of trucks. Monetary donations are always welcome and are used to offset facility expenses or to purchase specific items for our clients. Members of Joseph's Coat gratefully accept your donations to assist those in need at Masses on the fifth Sunday of the month. In 2018, collections will be taken April 28/29, July 28/29, and December 29/30. For more information, please contact our parish representative.
