“A strange place!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

One needs to be a person of faith to visit this strange chapel which holds the relics of many saints (or what is believed to be authentic relics). It is worth a visit, if only to get a sense of this of this odd type of piety.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

From the first step inside you are surrounded by so much of history of the saints. The Stations of the Cross are so life-like that you feel as if you are there with the Lord. The guides were full of knowledge. Only disappointing thing was to not be able to see the True Cross and the Thorn from our Savior but it was still an incredible experience

“Relic rich chapel”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Enjoyed our visit immensely. They had Carol who is so informed about the 5000 relics they have in the chapel, this history of the place and a very well stocked gift shop.

“A must see for people of all Faiths in Pittsburgh!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Powerful experience in a small chapel up on Troy Hill neighborhood of Pgh. Most first-class relics, 5,000 plus, in any one place in the world....all authenticated....including pieces of Christ's cross, a piece of the Blessed Virgin Mary's veil and st. Joseph's cloak, bones of all 12 Apostles, skulls of saints, many more....and dont miss the educational talk by one of st. Anthony parishioners who have lived the story of Father's collection and the building of the sacred place to house them....a truly sacred place and a Pitsburgh gem.
