Cardinal George Pell traveled from Rome to Pittsburgh on Thursday, June 23 to offer Mass for the patronal feast of the Knights of Malta at St. Peter Church on the Northside.

On Friday, Cardinal Pell and his secretary, Father Joseph Hamilton, made a quick private visit to our parish, along with Canon Matthew Talarico, provincial superior of the Institute.

Thanks to a gracious volunteer, Mr. Mark Graham, Summer Donuts & Coffee has returned after the Sunday 8:00 AM Low Mass in the school, Room 101. This program will be offered every Sunday with the exception of Father’s Day and run through August 27th. This is a terrific opportunity to meet and visit with fellow parishioners, many of whom travel a significant distance to attend the Traditional Mass. Please consider stopping in to visit!

The Pittsburgh Marathon will disrupt traffic all over the city on Sunday, May 7, 2023. Although the race course does not come near our parish's location on California Ave., it surely will block the routes that some people normally take to church. The footrace begins at 7 a.m., but road closures begin earlier.

Here is a map of the marathon course.
