St. Paul of the Cross Monastery, South Side, has a commanding view of Pittsburgh skyline. Taking time to visit this newly renovated church or make a retreat can be inspirational and peaceful especially during Lent.
While Pittsburgh is known for its connection to the steel mill industry of the past, few people realized that the Passionists constructed this structure above abandoned coal mines!

Meditation: Let us be reminded to walk and live a life of faith with others on solid ground.
May the Passion of Jesus Christ Be Always in Our Heart.
