Reconciliation

The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as the Sacrament of Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration.  In it we find God's unconditional forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive others.  

 

Penance is scheduled on Saturdays at 8:30 am at Assumption Parish.

Holy Matrimony

For Catholics, the Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.  


Arrangements must be made in person at least six months in advance.   For any questions, contact the Parish staff at 412-766-6660.  

Holy Orders

The Sacrament of Holy Orders is the continuation of Christ's priesthood, which He bestowed upon His Apostles; thus, the Catechism of the Catholic Church refers to the Sacrament of Holy Orders as "the sacrament of apostolic ministry."
