Saint Pius X Church is excited to announce The Second Annual Flyin’ Lion 5K! This event features a chip-timed 5K Race and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk, as well as post-race celebrations – all part of the annual weekend festivities celebrating the feast day of our patron and namesake, Saint Pius X. The 5K Race starts at 8:00 a.m. and the 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk begins immediately following the start of the 5K, both starting and ending at Saint Pius X Church.
This year's race will support the teens and young adults from Saint Pius X Church who will travel to participate in World Youth Day in 2019. The World Youth Day pilgrimage, taking place roughly every 3 years, gathers over a million young Catholics from around the world with Pope Francis to grow in faith through prayer, teaching, and fellowship. The Flyin’ Lion 5K provides an exciting opportunity for the church, school, and local community to come together in an active way while providing financial support to make travel to World Youth Day possible.
