For the first time since March 15, public Mass will be offered beginning on June 1, 2020.

Starting on Monday, June 1, there will be two Masses daily: Monday - Friday at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., and on Saturday at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. For the first week, we are restricted by the diocese to 25 people in the church for each Mass. So if you would like to attend a weekday Mass the first week, please call the parish office (412-761-1508) Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. to reserve a date/time slot.

Beginning Sunday, June 7, there will be three Sunday Masses: 8 a.m. (Low), 11 a.m. (High), and 5:00 p.m. (Low), and we will be able to increase attendance to 25% of the church's capacity, using every third pew. We are in the process of preparing for this next phase, and will have instructions on how to schedule for Sunday Mass posted soon here on the parish website.

Please see Canon Avis' letter on page 3 of the May 31 bulletin for many more details about the public resumption of Holy Mass in our church.

Through Saturday, May 30, the church will be open for private prayer from 12:00 Noon – 5:00 p.m. On Sunday, the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed from  9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. We need at least two people in church for each hour on Sunday.

If you are interested in coming to visit our Lord, please contact the parish office (412-761-1508) from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., to schedule a date/time. You may come to church without scheduling, and will certainly be allowed in if space is available (which is almost always the case).

Please note that since we must observe diocesan guidelines, there are only 25 people permitted in the church at one time, you must maintain six feet social distancing between individuals or families, and you must wear a face mask. Volunteers are needed as door monitors and cleaning crews, so if you are able and have the time, please let us know and we will schedule you at your convenience.
