How do you begin RCIA?

Our 8th & 9th Grade Faith Formation Students make their Confirmation in the Fall at Saint Mary, which occurs every other year. The date is usually in October or November and is determined by the Diocese. As soon as we receive the date for Confirmation, which is usually in September of that year, we share it with our Candidates, their Sponsors, Parents and Parish Members.
First Holy Communion
Our 2nd Grade Faith Formation Students make their First Holy Communion during a 1:00PM Mass in April each year. They prepare all year for their big day of receiving our Lord Jesus for their very first time.
Baptisms are performed on Sundays at 11:45AM. If you would like to have your child baptized please contact the Parish Business Office at 412-221-1560 to choose a date and to discuss necessary information needed for the baptism. If this is your first child to be baptized you must attend a baptismal class prior to the baptism.
