St. Joseph Roman Catholic Parish of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, founded in 1891, is a humble, devout and obedient, faith community modeled after St. Joseph, the spouse of Mary, foster father of Jesus and our patron. Our parish strives to do the will of God through vibrant evangelization, sound catechesis, life-long faith formation, sacramental practice, responsible stewardship and Eucharistic living. Through the grace of our Baptism we strive to serve God and neighbor in love and sacrifice. Enflamed by the Spirit, we are a Church Alive.
