On Mission For The Church Alive

A vital part of our diocese is the Secretariat for Leadership Development. It exists to form clergy and laity to effectively serve the Church of Pittsburgh as leaders. The goal is to develop a model of servant leadership where clergy and laity use their individual gifts and talents to collaborate on ways to achieve Bishop Zubik’s vision of the Church Alive! Every parish needs resourceful, competent and confident leaders. Pray about what you can do to call forward such leaders. Or to be one. To read more, check out “On mission for the Church Alive!” on page 5 of the March 27th Pittsburgh Catholic. For more information, visit

The current Liturgy Aid may be found here. Former liturgy aids may be found on their own page. You may access them here.

Open School Registration

If you are looking for a quality Catholic Education, our school is top notch! You will find forms and information here.

Registration is Always Open!

Are you a “registered” member of the Parish Family?  “Registration” means that you are NOW a member of the Parish Family — not to be confused with all those who received their sacraments here at one time but are no longer members NOW. One indication of registration is that you get the mailings that we send to all registered homes. If you do not, we ask that you stop in at the rectory and take a few moments to register so that we can share with you all the facets of our parish life.
