Our History

Blessed Sacrament Cathedral, a grand English gothic style structure, serves as the mother church of the Diocese of Greensburg, and towers on the hill top of North Main Street in downtown Greensburg. Our parish history dates back to 1789 and has since provided a home for both worship and faith formation to Catholics who live in the city of Greensburg and beyond.

A cathedral gets its name because it is the church where the cathedra (Greek and Latin for “chair,”) or bishop's chair, is placed. In ancient times, the chair was seen as the sign of authority to teach, and early bishops usually preached while seated. When the pope teaches formally, authoritatively and infallibly, he is said to be speaking "ex cathedra," or from the chair.
