  • 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.

    "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 Changes for HOLY WEEK

    I diocesofpittlogo12 n respect of, and in
    cooperation with, government health and safety guidelines related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), Bishop David Zubik is releasing the following details for Holy
                    Week in the Catholic Diocese
                    of Pittsburgh


     “Although we will observe Holy Week in a different way, the heart of the sacred week remains intact. Jesus is bringing people together in new ways to honor the great sacrifice of Jesus in His Passion and Death,” Bishop Zubik said.

    For this year’s Holy Week in the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh: 

    • Bishop Zubik will live stream Masses and Prayer Services that people will be able to watch through the diocesan website. A list of parishes with live stream schedules will also be shared at www.diopitt.org

    ⇒ All previous directives will remain in effect to adhere to the current government recommendation of no more than ten people gathered. For this reason, there will be no public celebration of liturgies. 

    ⇒ Churches will not be open during scheduled Masses/liturgies but may remain open at other times for individuals who wish to make a short visit. People should contact their parishes to confirm times. 

    ⇒ Palm Sunday, April 5, 2020: Bishop Zubik will celebrate a Mass that will be live streamed at 10 a.m. Priests throughout the diocese will also celebrate private Palm Sunday Masses and bless palms which will be made available for people to pick up at a later date when restrictions are lifted. 

    ⇒ Holy Thursday, April 9, 2020: Bishop Zubik will celebrate the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper, live streamed at 7:00 p.m. The Washing of the Feet, which is optional, will be omitted from observances this year. 

    ⇒ Good Friday, April 10, 2020: Bishop Zubik will celebrate Friday of the Passion of the Lord, live streamed at 3:00 p.m. 

    ⇒ Holy Saturday, April 11, 2020: The traditional ecumenical blessing over the City of Pittsburgh is postponed and will be rescheduled once the restrictions are lifted. There will be no blessing of Easter baskets. Bishop Zubik will celebrate the Easter Vigil, live streamed at 8:30 p.m. 

    ⇒ Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020: Bishop Zubik will celebrate Holy Mass, live streamed at 10:00 a.m. The annual Blessing of Families at St. Paul Cathedral is cancelled. 

    “Our commemoration of Holy Week is always meant to reawaken in our hearts the great sacrifice of the Passion and Death of Jesus leading to the exhilarating experience of His Resurrection. This year, and in light of the unusual sacrifices we have had to make because of COVID-19, it is my hope that we can more deeply cherish the sacrifices Jesus has made for us as we hope to share in His Resurrection when we breathe our last,” Bishop Zubik said.

  • 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.
