Pieta at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral


We are pleased to announce that we have received the necessary funding to keep the replica statue of Michelangelo’s Pieta as a permanent asset to the Cathedral. On December 8, 2018, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Archbishop Schnurr blessed the Pieta. Since then, thousands of parishioners, tourists, and pilgrims have come to see this most beautiful sculpture. We are very grateful to the benefactors and friends of the Cathedral who have generously made possible this Divine work of art depicting the greatest gift our Lord has given us, His Son, as a permanent exhibit at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral for generations to come.

The Pieta is located in the baptistery, to the right of the main altar and opposite the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Public viewing is available Monday through Friday from 6:30am - 6:00pm, Saturday from 11:00am - 6:00pm and on Sundays from 10:30am-1:00pm. Please visit us to take in this brilliant work of art.
