When Life Throws You a Curve

The Vern Sumnicht Story: A Blessing Born from Tragedy!


December 1, 2014

St. Pius X Parish

7:00-8:30 p.m.


The life of Vern is one of tragedy and triumph. In 1976 he was the victim of a car accident. He was left paralyzed: C-6 quadriplegic. But he graduated at the top of his class. Went on to become a successful business entrepreneur. Yet through this tragedy he drew strength from Christ and his wife.


Through Vern’s personal testimony and reflections from Scripture and other spiritual literature, adults will come to better understand the love of God through the Mystery of the Cross. The Cross comes to us in daily trials, in moments of crisis and in the sacrifices we make for others. It is in this human suffering that many of the greatest blessings are to be found. What is too often perceived as a setback is really a blessing in disguise.



Vern Sumnicht: Founder of Sumnicht & Assoc., husband, father and member of St. Pius X Parish

2014 St. Pius X Annual Meeting Information



ParishFest is looking for your Silent Auction items NOW! Before you rush out for those Black Friday specials, be sure to think about including St. Pius X on your giving list. Black Friday is the perfect time to purchase great items at discount prices and then donate those items to St. Pius to help at our next ParishFest. Also, all those wonderful new gifts that you receive for Christmas that really need to be re-gifted, what about re-gifting them to St. Pius?

The ParishFest will be glad to accept your Black Friday specials and all of the items you would like to re-gift and store them for you. Just bring the items to the Parish Office prior to December 31, and receive a tax write off receipt for your 2014 taxes.

Guide Book & Directory Advertising Opportunity


We are in the process of updating our annual Guide Book & Directory for the Church.  This book will be the Who, What, Where, When, Why and How of our Congregation.  The book is being provided at no cost to our Church, including the mailing to each family, and again is being subsidized by local businesses that advertise in it.  If you own or manage a business and would like to find out about advertising in our book, please call the Church Office. Recent survey results by Guide Book Publishing show that 92.1% of families would rather patronize a Guide Book & Directory advertiser over a non-advertiser. It “will pay” to advertise in our new Guide Book & Directory.


Update Membership Information


Does our Church database have YOUR family membership record correct? Here is your chance to update YOUR record for our annual Guide Book & Directory (if you haven’t already done so).


It is time for us to update our database with any changes, additions, or deletions that may have occurred in YOUR family over the past year. Have you changed your phone number? Have you moved? Are you preparing to move soon? Are all of your children still at home and are they all included in your membership record? Do you want your record published? If you have not already informed the Church Office about changes to your record, please let us know now so that the information in the Guide Book & Directory is correct.


Thank you for your help!




We have many opportunities for you to change your life profoundly by spending time with Our Lord in the Chapel of Divine Mercy. Consider assisting another adorer on the schedule by ensuring that they have someone to count on when they cannot adore!

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.
