1990’s

In the early 1990's a new cross was purchased with parish donations and hung behind the altar in church. Fr. Larry McBride became the pastor in 1992. St. Pius Tenth grew to a community of  approximately 650 families and employed a Pastoral Minister, a Director of Religious Education and a Sacramental Coordinator. A Senior guild for parish members 50 and older, Youth Groups for those in Middle and High Schools, a Buildings and Grounds Committee which oversees the upkeep of the church property, a Social Concerns Committee which addresses current issues of interest to all, and a  Bereavement Luncheon Group which serves a meal for the family and friends of deceased parishioners on the day of the funeral was established. With the help of many volunteers, the church received a new coat of paint in early 1997.

Each year the annual picnic continues to draw crowds from all around to sample the delicious barbecue, burgoo and potato salad. Athletics and scouting are still very important activities for parish youth and adults alike. The different committees and groups not only serve the parish and its  parishioners, but are often a source of fellowship for their members.
