The Diocese of Pittsburgh reports that the diocesan office will move from Monroeville back to Trinity Cathedral in downtown Pittsburgh:

Beginning in late 2012, Bishop [Dorsey] McConnell began keeping office hours at Trinity one day a week; by the summer of 2014, he saw that it was time to make the move permanent, a decision he announced to widespread applause at the next diocesan convention.

Since the Golden Triangle is now being revitalized with massive new construction of residential and commercial space, there could be no better moment to re-introduce the full-time presence of our bishop. Finally, the symbolic importance of the cathedral, connecting all the parishes of the diocese together through the Office of the Bishop, is widely recognized among our clergy and people.

After years of struggle during the split, Trinity is entering a new period of stability under the leadership of Interim Dean Scott Quinn and is ready to recover its historic role as the Episcopal seat.

The move from Monroeville will be completed by the end of June 2015.
