St. Pius X Catholic Church shares the love of Christ with parishioners, visitors, and the local community through spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
Living up to the universal meaning of the word, ‘catholic,’ the Church welcomes all. It is wonderful to have the Catholic tourists visit us, yet, we realize that for many people this is not why you may have the desire to seek us out. Be assured that you will not be judged by anyone and that everyone is always welcome. We sincerely invite you to ‘come and check us out.’
As a true missionary parish, St. Pius X is also joined with St. Joseph’s in Monticello, and Sacred Heart Mission in the LaSal Mountains. All are in Utah. The church is part of the Diocese of Salt Lake City which is located in Salt Lake. This is the only diocese in the entire state of Utah due to the rural lay of the land.

After Sunday Mass, we invite all to stay for a cup of coffee and homemade snacks. This is a good opportunity for you to talk to Pastor Father Bill. You will always find a warm smile and maybe a familiar face. We would love to hear your story and share ours with you.
Mass is held Saturday at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday at 9:00 a.m. every week. Weekday Masses are held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. It is suggested to check our calendar for proper daily Mass times for these three days. To learn more about the history of the parish, please click here.
The church’s namesake, St. Pius X, was born on June 2, 1835. He was baptized as Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto. On May 29, 1954, he who had become the 259th pope was canonized St. Pius X. From him we learn simplicity of life, humility of heart, and that wisdom are keys to a Christian life. Pope St. Pius Xs last will and testament bears this sentence: “I was born poor, I have lived in poverty, and I wish to die poor.” His feast day is August 21.
