Why Register In The Parish?  All those who worship with us regularly are encouraged to register in the parish, and be more connected to our warm and supportive parish family.  By registering in the parish you ensure that you will receive important communications, and also, we will be able to welcome you properly to our community and help you to feel more at home here.  Also we will maintain your sacramental records so that it is easier for you to serve as a Godparent or Sponsor if you wish to do so in the future. 

St. Athanasius Parish, with about 1,300 families, offers a warm and welcoming small-parish atmosphere.  A major attraction for retirees is our many daytime social and recreational programs.  Our thriving Youth Ministry and Children's Faith Formation programs, offer many options, tons of fun, and lots of flexibility for young families.  St. Athansius has something for everyone, with a broad range of outreach programs, an open and innovative approach to parish organization, excellent liturgies, an active community life, and more.


It's Easy to Register!  You may use the online form linked below or print out the following page, fill it out, and bring them to our Parish Center at 7 Chalfonte Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15229 between 9 AM and 5 PM on any weekday.  If you are unable to come in to register, please call the Parish Secretary at 412-931-4624 to register by phone.  Don't worry if you can't fill the forms out in their entirety, we can help you when you come in or call.

What About My Previous Parish?  The Diocese prefers that you maintain registration in just one parish, so it is best to notify your former parish that you are changing parishes.  Ideally, families will register in the parish in which they reside, worship, and receive Faith Formation.  If you wish to maintain contact with your former parish by receiving their bulletins or newsletters, just ask them - most parishes can accomodate this request.
