Diocese of Pittsburgh - On Mission for the Church Alive!


Diocese of Pittsburgh friends,

With the release of the interim Mass schedules set to go into effect on October 15, how is your parish affected? My parish has always had two Sunday morning Masses, one usually around 8:00 and another around 11:00. I love the early Mass, but with the new schedule, it will be eliminated, leaving only the late-morning Mass.

I think I am going to be doing a lot of “church shopping” in the next couple of months. It stinks to get adjusted to a new Mass schedule, but I think this is a good opportunity to explore different parishes and see how others do things.

How has your schedule been affected? Will you attend a different church and/or Mass time?


We have 2 Churches in our Parish: Mother Church and Chapel Church.

Mother Church: Saturday 4 PM

                         Sunday 10 AM

Chapel Church: Saturday 5:30 PM

                          Sunday 8:30 Am

Our Priest is on the road between Churches a lot. PLUS he has weekday Masses at both Churches:

Mother Church: Wednesdays 12:15 Pm
Chapel Church: Tuesdays & Thursdays 6:30 AM


They reduced the schedule from two Sunday masses to one. But I don’t see a church closing here, with the church facilities adjacent to it.
