All are welcome at our liturgies, including students from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, and Carlow University.

Friday, November 14, was the Feast of St. Philip the apostle.  Saturday began the Philippian Fast, for the 40 days before Christmas.  Prayer, fasting, and alms for the poor are the tools for spiritual preparation leading up to the Christmas holy day.  Please join in this preparation time so that the Spirit of Christmas will fill your life and those around you.

The Parish Christmas Party will be held Sunday, December 14, following the 11 AM Divine Liturgy.  

Join us for the recitation of the Rosary on Sunday at 10:25 AM, as we Pray For Peace.
