St. Mary Of Mercy Parish, better known to Pittsburghers as St. Mary's At The Point, is the spiritual home to all those who live, work, study, shop and visit downtown Pittsburgh. St. Mary's is a spiritual oasis where they can be renewed and recharged throughout the course of a busy week.
The congregation dates back 1868 when a group of Irish immigrants living in the section of the city which is now known as "The Point," established a parish which began with a small chapel as a mission. The parish was placed under the patronage of the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title of Our Lady Of Mercy, but in the course of time it became known to the people of the Diocese Of Pittsburgh as Saint Mary Of The Point.
The present Saint Mary Of Mercy Church, built in 1935, is the nearest church to the location of the original Fort Duquesne. It accommodates 850 people with a unique interior that serves hundreds of visitors weekly.
The parish's office is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
