Our History
THROUGH THE 20 th CENTURY (continued)

Both parishes flourished during the rest of the century as separate entities, each with its own school, convent and staff consisting of two priests each, and teaching staff of nuns.

Due to a decline in population in the 1970s, eventually both schools where closed. Pastoral staff was reduced to one priest in residence at each parish.

In 1995 St. Nicholas Parish Millvale and St. Nicholas Parish North Side were reunited as one parish and became Diocese of Pittsburgh Bishop Donald Wuerhl's personal parish to minister to the spiritual needs of people of Croatian heritage. Today, St. Nicholas Parish carries forth from the 19th century the spirit of the first Croatian immigrants to Pittsburgh into the 21st century, unified by their Roman Catholic faith.
