Why should the beautiful die?

St. Boniface Church

The Parkway North swerved to avoid this splendid church, but destroyed the whole neighborhood that made up its parish. Now a worship site of Holy Wisdom Parish, St. Boniface is also home to the officially sanctioned Latin Mass community in Pittsburgh (as opposed to other Latin Mass churches that call themselves Catholic but are repudiated by the Roman Catholic hierarchy).

  1. This is an absolutely beautiful building. The design wonderful and pleasing to the eye. My compliments to the architect, whoever that may be. I don’t know much about architecture, but I know what I like.

    • It’s the old parish school. It looks very much like an old church of the upstairs type, with the sanctuary on the second floor, so it could possibly have been converted to school use from the original church when the current one was built. Perhaps someone from the parish will enlighten us.
