St. Stephen Church in Hazelwood


Read about and take a look at photos of FIDES students as they worked for social justice in the service-learning they engaged in during 2012-13.

In 2013-14 FIDES students became acquainted with the parish of St. Stephen, located in a historic church in the community of Hazelwood, which lost much of its population when the steel industry collapsed in Pittsburgh. FIDES is helping the parish to preserve the history and document the importance of their beautiful church as a way of learning about the artistic expression of deeply held beliefs.


FIDES resident students live in St. Martin Living-learning Center.

St. Martin is in the lower right-hand corner of the campus map.
