Our Parish Mission is to
help you connect your
faith with the world you
live in!

elcome to our Parish!

Saint Scholastica, located in Aspinwall, PA, is a Roman Catholic Parish in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Since 1907, we have served the boroughs of Aspinwall, Fox Chapel, and part of O'Hara Township.

Christ, Risen and Glorified, is the center of our lives and the source of all our hope. The Sacraments of the Church form us as God’s People and energize us so that we can be light and salt to the world God created.

I welcome your interest and involvement in our faith community of St. Scholastica. Feel free to contact any of us, who can be of service to you. We extend an invitation for you to join us at Sunday Mass and experience for yourself our worshiping community. Come and see.

In the Peace of Christ Jesus, Fr. Dale DeNinno, Administrator
