Church of the Good Shepherd

The Church of the Good Shepherd was established as a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh in 1872.  The church is located in the Hazelwood section of the city, on the corner of Second and Johnston Avenues.  The worship is liturgical and Anglo-Catholic (incense, bells and vestments are used in the service).  The service is spiritual, evangelistic and alive.  The message is based on Holy Scripture, and the Good News of Jesus Christ is preached.  Music is a blend of traditional Episcopal music and contemporary Christian music.  If you are interested in worshipping in a small urban parish that is in the process of growing, rebuilding, and becoming a "beacon of light in the community," this is the church for you.  The Church of the Good Shepherd is open to people of all  races, ethnic backgrounds, nationalities and denominations.  We welcome anyone who is seeking a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, whether it is a new relationship, or one which is being renewed.  The church is an historic landmark in Pittsburgh, and is adorned with beautiful stained glass windows, a carved wooden altar, heavily beamed ceilings, a stone baptismal font, Victorian pews, a wonderful bronze tabernacle, marvelous wood work, a brass eagle lectern and a bras and wood-railed pulpit.  We have some of the nicest people you will ever meet.  We invite you to come and worship with us.
