  • Diocese Of Pittsburgh REOPENING PLAN 



    Starting tomorrow, May 15, 2020, the first phase of the diocesan reopening plan for the counties in the state’s “yellow” level of reopening includes the following:
    • Limited funeral Masses and weddings continue, with cleaning/sanitizing guidelines in place, expanding to groups of no more than 25 people.
    • Churches will be permitted to open for private prayer with safety guidelines in place including seating in designated areas only, the use of masks, hand sanitizers, and social distancing.
    • Churches will be permitted to open for Confessions – Confessionals do not meet public health safety requirements, and as such, Confessions will be heard at posted times and in a manner that preserves the sanctity of the Sacrament.  Penitents must practice social distancing and all other safety guidelines.
    • Baptisms can be scheduled but with the restriction of one family baptism per each ceremony and no more than 25 people present. Great care must be given to social distancing, wearing masks, and sanitization precautions.
    • Livestream Masses and prayer services will continue.
    Moving forward from this phase,

    the diocese will look to return to the public celebration of the Holy Mass, starting with daily Masses on Monday, June 1, 2020, and a goal of recommencing weekend Masses the weekend of June 6 and 7, 2020More details will be released closer to those dates.

  • How to make a
    "Spiritual Communion"

    "Spiritual Communion"

         During this time of the Coronavirus, many people feel afraid and helpless.

         As Christians, we are called to do good through our example of words, actions and prayer. The good that we do can have a positive impact upon others at such challenging times. Pope Francis offers us encouragement:

    “Let us call upon him today, firmly rooted in prayer, for without prayer all our activity risks being fruitless and our message empty.” (Evangelii Gaudium, no. 259)

  • Bishop Announces Emergency Fund and Online Giving


         The Diocese of Pittsburgh and its parishes are feeling the negative impact due to a sharp decline in weekly offertory donations since the suspension of public Masses because of government restrictions associated with the coronavirus. 

         To help Catholics support their local parishes, the Diocese of Pittsburgh is working with them to set up online donation areas on their individual websites (See below - Saint Katharine Drexel's Online Donation / First and Second collections).

    People will also be able to donate to parishes, schools, or diocesan ministries of their choice, at the main diocesan website: https://www.diopitt.org/help,(Southeast Washington County (Grouping 336) - Saint Katharine Drexel) with an option for one-time or recurring gifts. People who prefer traditional means will still be able to mail financial gifts to their parishes.

  • Coronavirus Prayer

    During Coronavirus Outbreak prayer hands
    God our Father we come to You in our need to ask Your protection against the Coronavirus that has claimed lives and has affected many.

    We pray for Your grace for the people tasked with studying the nature and cause of this virus and its disease and of stemming the tide of its transmission.

    Guide the hands and minds of medical experts that they may minister to the sick with competence and compassion and of those governments and private agencies that must find cure and solution to this epidemic.

    We pray for those afflicted.
    May they be restored to health soon.

    Grant us the grace to work for the good of all and to help those in need.

    Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
    God forever and ever.
