"St. Stanislaus Church peeks out over the shops along Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh's Strip District. Like most of America's Rust Belt towns settled by European immigrant laborers, Pittsburgh was a deeply religious place in the early 20th century, with ornate Romanesque and Gothic chapels, churches and cathedrals rising in nearly every corner of the city.

When we asked @jeffswensen to look for signs of #Catholicism in Pittsburgh, he knew where to go first. We'll share more of @jeffswensen's photos this #nytweekender." By nytimes on Instagram.
