If you are Catholic, this is a "don't miss" place in Pittsburgh. It's located on Troy Hill across the highway from the Heinz plant. It has the second largest collection of relics next to the Vatican, and it houses 3/4 size Stations of the Cross that are incredible. A gift shop is across the street. Call for hours as they are odd.

I lived in Pittsburgh for 4 years before visiting this church. It is 5 minutes from downtown and I really never knew about it. A friend recommended visiting the church and what a surprise. I would place this church in the same category as churches in old Europe. It was build in the late 1800s. A couple of unique points, they have a unique station of the cross sculpture collection and they are 2nd to the Vatican in number of relics. You can really get up and close to the relics if that is your interest.

A small and very beautiful chapel with an interesting history - a little hard to find. A Pittsburgh friend took us there on a comfortable fall afternoon after confirming the open hours. We were in time for a guide explaining the history and describing all of the beautiful relics The very lifelike Stations of the Cross are bigger than most people will likely ever see.

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.
