HE WAS MADE KNOWN TO THEM IN THE BREAKING OF THE BREAD  As the two disciples encountered the risen Jesus on the road to Emmaus their hearts were burning within them. He celebrated the Eucharist and opened the scriptures to them. Do our hearts burn within us as we encounter Jesus at Mass? On Mission for The Church Alive! seeks to enliven the worship of every parish so that our hearts can burn with love as they are transformed by the Eucharist. Consider singing in the choir, reading at Mass, or participating more attentively at Mass so that God’s work can be done through you even more. Visit to stay involved.

May we, the Church of Pittsburgh, in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Greene, Lawrence and Washington Counties, be sustained and strengthened by your grace. Help us to learn Jesus, to love Jesus and to live Jesus. Hear this prayer and grant it through Jesus Christ our Lord, with the help of our dear Blessed Mother, under the mantle of her love, AMEN
