Replica of Rome's Holy Stairs

St. Patrick’s Church, in the Strip District, has a replica of Rome’s Holy Stairs.


People go to their knees in devotion when using these stairs. As an act of holy devotion, the religious ascend the stairs on their knees to symbolize their faithfulness. The Holy Stairs signify the twenty-eight steps between Christ and Pilate when Pilate said, “Behold the Man” and condemned Him to death.


St. Patrick’s Church is the first Roman Catholic Church in Pittsburgh founded in 1908.


The current church was dedicated on St. Patrick’s Day 1936.
