The Church of the Redeemer is a welcoming and caring community. Our congregation is curious and questioning. We have a history of social justice and outreach ministries, and lesbian and gay members are integral to our parish life. Worship is the heart of Redeemer’s life – it brings our family and church lives into one as we celebrate the liturgy, the word, and the sacrament together.
We are in Squirrel Hill.
5700 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15217.

Centering Prayer Group
Centering prayer is a deep method of silent prayer that prepares us to experience God’s presence within us. Meetings include centering prayer, lectio divina, and a short reading with discussion. Join us! Tuesday mornings, 7:00-8:30am. For more information, speak with Wiltrud Fassbinder or Dianne Watson.
All are welcome to attend on Tuesdays at 7:00pm. The current book is Stone Tables by Orson Scott Card. For a copy of the book or more information, speak with Gloriana St. Clair
Coffee hour volunteers needed!
Our convivial Sunday coffee hours are fueled by tasty finger foods provided by volunteers each week. One person or a group can work together to bring the food, set up the food, and clean up afterward. (Coffee is made and dishes washed by Roxann–the volunteer job is just about food!) Please sign up in the notebook that is set out during coffee hour, or contact Becca Stallings.
Interfaith Conversation on the Environment
Thursday, July 2, 7:00pm, Pittsburgh faith leaders from the Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Lutheran, and Hindu Jain communities will participate in a panel discussion facilitated by the Rev. Dr. Moni McIntyre, responding to Pope Francis’ Encyclical on climate change and the global economy.
Sundays, July 5, August 2, and September 6, the 10:30 service will be held outdoors on the rectory lawn, if weather permits.
