  • St. Paul of the Cross Monastery (map)

This Sunday at the 10am Mass, we have a Jubilee celebration for the 50 th Anniversary of Ordination of two members of our Pittsburgh Passionist Community, Fr. Joseph Sedley, C.P. and Fr. Michael Salvagna, C.P.

Ordained to the priesthood on May 30, 1969, both have spent a large part of those 50 years ministering here at this Monastery and Retreat House. Fr. Joe has served on the Mission Band in Retreat Houses and in parishes of our Province. He also served as Master of Novices. Fr. Mike has served on the Mission Band and in our Retreat Houses. He also served as Director of our Radio and TV Apostolate and as Vicar of the Pittsburgh Monastery and Retreat Director here.

A classmate, Fr. James Barry, C.P. from our Jamaica, NY Monastery is with us today to celebrate this milestone with them. We thank God for their vocations and their fidelity to the Passionist Priesthood. Congratulations to them and their families and friends!
