Annual Assembly of the Missouri Catholic Conference
Click here to see the Flier!
Celebrate the Year of Mercy! Plan on attending the Missouri Catholic Conference’s 2016 Annual Assembly on Saturday, October 8, at the Missouri State Capitol building in Jefferson City. This free event is sponsored by the Missouri bishops and everyone is invited. The keynote speaker will be the new bishop of Springfield-Cape Girardeau, Bishop Edward Rice. Workshops will be offered on a number of issues, including how virtue meets a culture of violence and how Catholics can approach decisions for the 2016 election. Lunch is provided and the day will end with a Mass concelebrated by the bishops. Please pre-register for the event by going to MOCatholic.org or calling 1-800-456-1679. See you on October 8!
St. Pius X requires each family to work one concession shift per school year. Each family is assigned one shift (either on the Fall or Winter schedule) no matter if your student plays a sport or not. Only one parent is required to attend (or another adult in the family, grandparent, aunt, uncle,etc).
Your student is NOT elgible to take your shift.
The Fall schedule is available on the SPX website under the Parent's Association tab.
The Winter Schedule is set in early November.
Please contact Jenny Vutich, Parents Association Concession Scheduler, if you have any questions regarding your concession obligation.
Many times we are in need of photos of students playing sports, participating in extra-curricular activities, service projects or other school activities throughout the school year. Since many parents take photos of their kids at these activities, we often come to you to seek extra photos when we need them for publications. To make this process easier, we have created a photo sharing site: spxkc.smugmug.com
We encourage parents who take photos at games to upload them onto this site for sharing. Please email Melanie at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an upload link if you are willing to share your photos.
In addition, smugmug allows photo ordering, so any parent can view the site and order photos they may want that others took. Our hope is that this will make photo sharing easy for our community.
