Phone: 412-381-8240


Formed by the merger of four local parishes, St. John Vianney is a Roman Catholic Church that primarily serves the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Allentown, Arlington Heights, Beltzhoover, Knoxville and Mt. Oliver.

It is named in honor of Jean-Baptiste-Marie Vianney (1786-1859), a French parish priest who became internationally notable for his priestly and pastoral work in his parish because of the radical spiritual transformation of the community and its surroundings.

The merged congregation took over what was originally St. George Church. Built in 1886, the building is a handsome red brick structure with impressive stone entries, magnificent stain glass windows and two identical spires reaching toward the sky. Over the years, what is now St. John Vianney expanded to include classrooms and an auditorium/gymnasium.
