Monastery Updates   6.2.2024

Dear Friends,

Laudato Si Committee: This group has continued to beautify our property. They meet regularly to study Pope Francis’  documents and asked  me to make this request, “Do you like to garden? Do you love the Monastery gardens? The St. Paul Laudato Si team can use your help to maintain them. No expertise needed, just willingness to work. We’re meeting the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Tuesdays of the month at 4:30 pm. Join us at the St. Paul Garden between the Church and Monastery Office. For more information, email Rose at roseannlord7@gmail.com or call 412.951.7224 and leave a message.”

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.
