If you need a ride from anywhere else or for any other event, simply contact us! Also, the following PAT Bus routes stop within a block of First Trinity: 71A, 71B, 71C, 71D, 28X, 54, 75, P3. If you prefer to walk, First Trinity is only approx. 10 minutes from the center of CMU’s and Pitt’s campuses.
The Most Livable Church – “Pittsburgh has now twice been rated America’s ‘Most Livable City.’ I was just there and found that First Trinity Lutheran must surely be the most livable church in the Pittsburgh area. The liturgy was so wonderfully rich and Lutheran that it reminded me of my childhood in Leipzig, die city of Johann Sebastian Bach. What a marvelous worship space you have, what a splendid organist! Martin Luther called Gospel-centered sermons ‘black bread,’ meaning nutritious. That’s what I received at First Trinity. I felt spiritually well fed.Thanks for having me. I’ll be back for seconds.”
