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.

 The ultimate goal of the films is to bring people closer to Christ. Bishop Barron makes this clear by stating that the saints and other holy men and women are, above all, representatives of Christ whose lives act as an invitation to greater communion with Christ and his Church. This is no boring history lesson. 

Come join us as we learn from the Pivotal Players in the hope that we may become one of them!

Based on the Study Program – Catholicism: The Pivotal Players by Bishop Robert E. Barron
