St. Pius X (Cedar Rapids, Iowa)


"In 1947 Archbishop Henry P. Rohlman founded All Saints Parish in the southeast quarter of Cedar Rapids. In 1959 Archbishop Leo Binz established Saint Pius X Parish in the northeast quadrant and chose the Saint Jude Parish site in the northwest area. Three new parishes within a decade and a half! After the site at Collins Road and Council Street N.E. had been chosen and the parish named for the recently canonized Pope Pius X, the parish was incorporated in 1959. It was a year before the people of Saint Pius first met on September 25, 1960, as a parish community to celebrate mass in Regis High School. Regis served as a temporary church for about 400 families."
