The Season of Lent


The Lenten Season has a twofold purpose:

 1. To prepare catechumens to celebrate the Sacraments of Christian initiation.

 2. To provide us, the faithful, the opportunity to seriously consider our call to holiness and the renewal of our baptismal promises through attentiveness to the Word of God, prayer and penance as we journey these 40 days to Easter.

Kwik Trip Gas Cards


Join the Kwik Trip Challenge!!!

For every $100 you buy, you get a one chance to be put in a raffle for a $50 Kwik Trip card. This is a weekly drawing.


Kwik Trip has increased their program to the parish that allows us to purchase their gas cards at a 10% return to the parish instead of 5%! That means St. Pius gets $10 for every $100 spent on gas cards. These gas cards can be used to purchase gas, car washes, and anything in the Kwik Trip convenience store itself, at any Kwik Trip location in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota.


To use the card, simply swipe the card at the pump and press the “credit” button when prompted. You do not need to worry about over filling because the pump will shut off automatically when the card limit is reached. The card can then be discarded.


Kwik Trip cards may be purchased after Saturday and Sunday morning Masses or at the Parish Office. Please consider this opportunity to earn cash for the parish.

We invite you to spend some time here, learning about our faith and to obtain news about our parish.
