Blessed Sacrament Cathedral, Greensburg, Pennsylvania 


Get Adobe Flash player
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.

We are excited to announce that Blessed Sacrament Cathedral will soon begin a new evangelization effort called ChristLife. This exciting encounter invites the participant to come to know personally the love of God through Jesus Christ.

As we begin our planning efforts we need your help. We first need your PRAYERS. Please keep in your daily prayers an intention asking God to guide our work as we continue his mission of evangelization in our parish community. We also need Volunteers for this 7 week program called “Discovering Christ”. There are many different  volunteer roles to be filled by those who are interested in helping as  members of the core team.

Volunteers will be asked to make a seven week commitment for the ChristLife series that will take place once a week. An informational night has been scheduled for interested volunteers which will take place on Tuesday, August 5 at 7 PM in the Cathedral Hall. Please call Sandi Kocian in the parish office for more information, or email Sandi at skocian@dioceseofgreensburg.org.
