Tenth Power – March 2020

Roaring towards …
BOLT: Prohibition and Pearls! This year’s annual BOLT Gala will feature the 20s, as in the 1920s. Join us for a night to support the Bolts.

What we’re celebrating: AcaDeca! Pius X won its second straight state title, its fifth in seven years! And the Thunderbolts had the top two individual finishers, too, Claire Oldenburg and Aaron Kotopka.

The Girls Basketball team won its fourth state title and first in Class A! Check out the final seconds of the title game and celebration!

And now we’re ready to celebrate spring sports and spring weather! Spring schedule

We’re listening to …
Our first Lenten talk featured senior Joe Finder sharing his testimony of how he finds forgiveness and peace after life’s difficult moments.

If you missed …
BOLT Love, be sure to read the love stories of Pius X alumni who met their future spouse at or from Pius X.

For our Alumni …
We are planning to mail our annual Alumni edition of Pius Connections this week. It’s full of stories featuring alumni.

And here’s more news from and for alumni, including features updates on births and weddings, plus past profiles of alumni.

And the nominees are …
… up to you! If know of an alumni or steward of Pius X that has accomplished great feats in their industry (alumni) or gone above and beyond in supporting Pius X (stewardship), nominate them! But no one wins without being nominated, so please take a moment to send in your nomination.

Who tells your story?
Will your legacy tell the story of your values? A key part of planned giving is providing support for the people and causes after this life. You can learn about how to ensure your legacy in our next event, ‘Leaving Your Legacy’ seminar, complete with local experts. The event is March 18, 2020 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Pius X High School. (As always, there will be no “ask” at
these events. We simply hope they serve as an educational opportunity for our loyal Pius X family members.)

Our student photographers not only take great photos, they make them available for purchase, too! Check out more than 1,000 photos now in their online photo store.

The season for t-shirts and polos (also light jackets and pullovers) is upon us, so be sure you have the right Bolt gear for the right occasion and check out the Booster Club store.

While you are spring cleaning, remember the clothing drop-off trailer now at Pius X High School (east parking lot). Pius X and Catholic Social Services teamed up with support from Nebraska Dermatology to accept donations and responsibly re-use every possible thread.
