Start with prayer 

Students at St. Pius X School gathered for their opening prayer service to introduce this year’s school theme, “Created in the Image and Likeness of God, 2 Love, By Love, 4 Love.” Father Matthew Summe read to the students from the Book of Genesis and spoke of God creating each one of them in his image for a special purpose. Mrs. Greenwell then talked to the students about being charitable in their words after reading the book, “Mr. Peabody’s Apples.” The prayer service concluded with a student-led song that many of them had learned during Vacation Bible School.
