Southside Reconnect at The Monastery: St. Gemma

  • St. Paul of the Cross Monastery 148 Monastery Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15203 United States (map)

Celebrate St. Gemma Galgani at Southside Reconnect!

Father Justin Kerber, c.p. will give a short talk on the life and legacy of beloved mystic and daughter of Passion, St. Gemma Galgani. St. Gemma’s life, miracles, and intercessions continue to inspire.

Take the opportunity to visit the only shrine to St. Gemma Galgani which is in our church.

St. Gemma is a model for lay people who want to pray, who want to turn to God, for help and consolation in their worried lives - plagued by financial insecurity, broken homes, and emptiness - caused by the death of loved ones, the rejection felt by some handicap, and the frustration of the willing who are unable - in a society where the able are unwilling.
