Cardinal Gregory celebrates Mass for 60th anniversary of St. Pius X Regional School
Celebrating a Sept. 28 Mass marking the 60th anniversary of St. Pius X Regional School in Bowie, Maryland, Washington Cardinal Wilton Gregory urged the students and staff to emulate their school’s patron and “be generous and kind and loving.”
“We are all called to be saints, every one of us,” the cardinal said. “There is a special bond with the saint after whom you are named, and I hope you become like that saint.”
Cardinal Gregory was the principal celebrant of the all-school Mass. Concelebrants included Father Michael Jones, the pastor of St. Pius X Parish and the school’s pastoral administrator; and Father Michael Russo, parochial vicar at Sacred Heart Parish in Bowie. In addition to St. Pius X Parish, Sacred Heart parish is one of the four Bowie parishes that sponsor the school. The other parishes are Ascension Parish and St. Edward the Confessor Parish.
