St. Stanislaus Kostka Church

Today we take a look at St. Stanislaus Kostka Church, a Catholic Polish Cathedral. The congregation was first organized in 1873 when an influx of Polish immigrants ended up working in the Strip District of Pittsburgh. This gem of a building was built in 1891. This building has survived major floods and even an explosion at the neighboring banana ripening plant. In 1969, Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, later to be ordained as Pope John Paul II, visited the church. 


The stunning stained glass windows were crafted in Munich Germany.
In addition to church services, the parish often has pyrohi sales. Their pyrohi are among the best in the city!
