Parish History

Word of God parish was established on May 28, 1994, as part of the diocese's reorganization and revitalization program.  The parish was formed by merging the parishes of St. Anselm and St. Barnabas in Swissvale and Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Rankin. At first all three churches remained open and served the new parish.  However, as time went on, the size of the congregation continued to drop.  In 2011, the parish discontinued using St. Barnabas and Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary churches.  By 2014, the parish determined that they only needed one church building.  On June 30, 2014, both St. Barnabas and Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary churches were permanently closed and St. Anselm church was renamed Word of God church.
