This small church has many relics and almost life sized stations.It is something everyone should experience. The antique wood working is an art in self.

If you're steeped in Catholicism, you have to visit. You can have a guided tour or just look around and take in the wonderment. It is absolutely exquisite.

St. Anthony's has the largest relics collection in the US. The docents are quite knowledgeable. The hours that it is open are variable, so be sure to check to make sure that it is open when you go.

A great spot for the pious, and those interested in history and art history. The tour guide gives an indepth presentation drawn from her expert knowledge and her personal experience as a native of Pittsburgh. The tour presentation is appropriate for an audience of teenagers and adults; our young children grew fidgety so we quietly crept out. The large wooden sculptures of each of the stations of the cross had an impact on our children and helped them to sympathize with Christ. The tour is free but donations are appreciated as the church is not supported by a parish, but only by fundraising. There is a modest gift shop with religious articles across the street next to the chapel parking.

Anyone interested in religion or Christianity is welcome to experience firsthand the awesome faith of early Christians who devoted their lives to promote Christian values and traditions, often in a harsh and unforgiving environment and even in the face of punishment by an excruciatingly painful death, who yet remained undaunted and whose fantastically interesting and varied life stories serve as true living examples of how all humans should exude humility, love, patience, and compassion in our own everyday lives.

And, best of all, it is right here in Pittsburgh!

If, for any reason (financial, time constraints or especially due to health related issues) you cannot make the trip to Vatican City in Rome, this is a must see alternative not to be missed.

It may even benefit you in some way as relics of Saints are often attributed to miraculous events, even in this our "modern" age.
