We visited this chapel to see the thorn from Jesus’ crown and when we arrived we were greeted by someone in the chapel. We told him we saw the crown in Paris and were interested in seeing the thorn. He said that they had it in the chapel and then talked for about 45 minutes about all of their relics. He ended his tour with telling us that the thorn was in a glass vial on a high shelf behind the railing at the front of the chapel and if you lean on the railing you may be able to glimpse it. I unfortunately could not see the thorn because it was too high up. I wish that he would have said in the beginning that it isn’t available to see instead of leading us on for 45 minutes.

We really enjoyed visiting the chapel. It was our first time. It is much larger than we thought. And absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed learning it’s history and seeing so many of the artifacts. Hard to believe there are so many in one place. We told our family and friends about it any many plan on visiting it soon. We also look forward to visiting it again. Such a treasure for Pittsburgh.

I came as a personal pilgrimage. The church opens promptly at 1 and not before. A tad dusty, which takes a bit of the sparkle out of the experience. The number and presentations of saintly relics is overwhelming. I felt like the air I breathed in there was full of the Holy Spirit. Disappointed that there are no more books about the chapel, because you are prohibited from taking photos. I don’t understand why ppl with dslr/smartphones are prohibited as no further light would add to light damage. If you cannot buy the book and you can’t take pictures......???? Grumble. Your spirit can not help but be lifted at the presence of thousands of the church’s heroes and heroines. Be there for the 1 pm tour then use the rest of the time to just soak in the atmosphere. Gift shop is a bit full of religious items easily obtained by any Christian bookstore. Not to sound too mercenary, but why not have reverently made 3rd class relics? Spread the religious “wealth.” Catholic or not, it is an experience that will be forever in your mind. So, so glad I pinched and saved to come here.

St. Anthony's Chapel in Pittsburgh is a special place. it has more sacred Catholic relics that anywhere else except Rome. It's awe inspiring. I've been to Rome many times and this site is on a par with many churches and chapels there. A must see if you're in or visiting Pittsburgh.
