On Mission For The Church Alive

Wednesday, November 16, and Tuesday, November 29, at 7 pm


It’s often said that change is part of life, but that doesn’t make it any easier. Our society is changing, and so are our communities and parishes. On Mission For The Church Alive! Will help lead us through changes ahead to help fulfill our baptismal call to follow and bring others to Jesus. You are invited to take part in one of two parish consultation sessions to learn about draft proposals of new models of ministry across the Diocese of Pittsburgh.


Our parish meetings will be held on Wednesday, November 16, and Tuesday, November 29, at 7 pm in Athanasian Hall.




This opportunity in Adult Faith Formation is designed in small faith-sharing groups allowing people to share our faith with others and to grow together in community. Using prayer, shared experiences, and explorations of faith, these small groups can create in a smaller setting a community that enhances the life of the entire St. Athanasius parish family. Topics include: the place of MASS in our hectic lives; Do you feel changed when you leave MASS? How is MASS connected to family, work, recreation & football?  Enter the discussion.  Be part of something very special.


There are two small groups meeting this fall:  Monday mornings 9:00 – 10:30, beginning October 17; Thursday evenings beginning October 20.



Now meeting Wednesdays in the John XXIII Room from 7-8:30 pm.

This is the time of inquiry.  Do you want to learn more about the CAtholic way of life?  Are you itnerested in becoming a Catholic Christian?  Were you baptized Catholic and want to complete the Scaraments of Initiation - Eucharist and Confirmation?

Liturgy of the Word for Children




Our children celebrated Christ the King by creating a crown that that was brought forward with the gifts and placed on the altar.


Liturgy of the Word for Children is celebrated every Sunday during the 9:30 am Mass.  Right before the first reading starts, the children are called to gather in the center aisle.  The priest or deacon gives their blessing, and the children and adult volunteers head down to the hall to talk about the Gospel and relate it to the children’s everyday lives and help them grow in their faith.

If you have children, please feel free to bring them along to experience this fun time. If they are a little shy, a parent or older brother or sister
are welcome to join them.

Sacramental preparation is required for children and/or adults prior to receiving the Sacraments.  Please view our Sacramental Preparation page to learn what programs St. Athanasius Parish offers.
