St. Pius X Daycare History:

In 1971 the Parish decided to establish a new ministry that would aid working parents by adding, Kindergarten and a Daycare Center.  The first Director of the Daycare Center was Sr. Mary Mercy an Ursuline Sister.  The Daycare was located in the west wing of the school building.  In 1989, the Kindergarten Program was taken over by the Owensboro Catholic Consolidated School System.
