Monastery Updates   2/25/2024

Dear Friends:
ST. POLYCARP: In my office, I have a file cabinet where I keep talks and sermons I’ve written. Some I like. Some I throw out when I read them a second time. I also have a section on the saints, mostly short stories about each of the saints. I love St. Paul of the Cross and St. Therese of Lisieux and I have lots of stories about them. For Feb. 23rd, the feast of St. Polycarp, I went to my notes. I have always admired everything about him except his name.

Welcome to St. Paul of the Cross Monastery in the historic South Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. We hope the monastery can become for you a place where you can experience God’s love.

Retreat Center

Paul of the Cross, founder of the Passionists, always wished his monasteries to be places of hospitality. The same applies for our retreat center. We have a variety of retreats for men, women, mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and many day events as well.
