I am a “Cradle Catholic” who grew up in Westerly. I joined St. Pius X in 1995 after attending daily mass and being inspired by Fr. Ray Suriani. The sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation are very important to me. They keep me grounded and help me maintain a strong Faith. Attending mass is no longer looked upon as a burden but rather has become a highlight in my life; in large part due to Fr Ray and Fr Najim as well as the close knit family feeling one gets at St. Pius X. I can truly say that my passion for Catholicism didn’t come overnight but has blossomed from a daily “spiritual diet” which is fed right here in this beautiful parish.
