Due to safety concerns at Saint Mary of the Mount church on Grandview Avenue on Mount Washington, the church has been closed temporarily.
A recent inspection revealed that there are serious concerns with the integrity of the church ceiling which, according to the Diocese of Pittsburgh, are being given immediate attention.
Daily and weekend Masses at Saint Mary of the Mount Parish are being celebrated at the parish’s Sullivan Hall at 115 Bighan St. until necessary repairs can be made to ensure the safety of parishioners.
The decision to temporarily close the church was made by Bishop Zubik together with St. Mary of the Mount Church Pastor, Fr. Michael Stumpf.
