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.

Centering Prayer Group
This group will not meet in July. We will resume in August meeting every Tuesday morning, 7:00-8:30am. Centering prayer is a receptive, deep method of silent prayer that prepares us to experience God’s presence within us. Meetings begin with 20 minutes of centering prayer, followed by lectio divina, a short reading and discussion of relevant spiritual literature, and shared intercessions. Join us!
No meeting on June 24. We will resume on July 1. All are welcome to attend on Tuesdays at 7:00pm. The current book is A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power by Jimmy Carter. See George Kehm for books.
