Beautiful Church Closes

Every Holy Thursday, one or more of the Pittsburgh Oratorians takes
people on a tour of seven churches for adoration of the Blessed
Sacrament. Occasionally listed among those seven churches has been St.
Nicholas on the North Side (not to be confused with its sister church,
St. Nicholas in Millvale). As I recall (It’s been a while since my last
visit), it’s a
beautiful church
. It has the classy look of artisitic sacred
architecture, something woefully lacking in most modern churches.
Today, I was saddened to read that the
Diocese of Pittsburgh has decided to close it down
. If you’ve ever
seen the beauty of St. Nicholas and wish to see it preserved, I strongly
urge you to contact the diocese.
