Though the Saint Patrick’s Church you can visit today was only built in 1936 the history of the Parish goes back to 1808 and the first Saint Patrick’s church was opened in 1811. Several events over the years caused the church to move locations and or rebuild. The role that Saint Patrick’s has played in the history of Pittsburgh is a fascinating one and more can be read on their website. Additionally Saint Patrick’s houses a piece of the Blarney Stone and is home to the Holy Stairs, replicas of the 28 stairs that separated Pilate and Jesus when Pilate condemned him. The original steps were taken to Rome from Jerusalem in the 4th Century. The replica steps were built in 1936 having been commissioned by the Labor Priest Father James Cox. In 1993 Saint Patrick was combined with St. Stanislaus and administration is handled through the rectory offices located on 21st Street next to St. Stanislaus. Saint Patrick is still open and services are still held there weekly.

DEVOTION TO ST. JUDE
Following Wednesday 7:00PM Mass
St. Stanislaus “St. Stan’s” was constructed in 1891-92 and consecrated in 1892. It was built in a Romanesque and Baroque style with Byzantine influences and was commissioned by the Saint Stanislaus Beneficial Society a group who had established the first Polish Catholic Church in Pittsburgh more than 15 years earlier. St. Stans sits along 21st at the point where Smallman Street narrows making it a point of focus for those coming east along Smallman with it’s large central medallion window welcoming visitors. Today St. Stanislaus and St. Patrick are combined but both are active churches with several services each week.
