St. Pius X was build in the mid-1950's and it has been growing steadily for the past sixty years. Above, is a view of the North Elm Street side of the church, where new construction is under way. Around back, on the Cornwallis side, another building is also being built. The Simmons Parish Life Center and the DeJoy Primary Education Center will add much-needed space to the church and school, especially given the fact that membership is growing. According to their June newsletter, between October, 2014- May, 2015, 140 households joined St. Piux X. If this growth trend continues, approximately 20 new households a month, before you know it, they'll be expanding again.
The construction will consolidate parish operations and eliminate the need for the parish office to be split between the Elm Street facility and the offices, four blocks away, on Elm Street. If you like Sunday drives, head over and check on the progress. The growth is impressive, especially given the proximity to downtown Greensboro. Reverend Monsignor Anthony Marcaccio is loved by the congregation and he is a significant force behind the growing popularity of this Catholic Church, located at the edge of Irving Park.
