About This Journal
Why Gathered Fragments?
The title for Gathered Fragments originated with the motto of Pittsburgh diocesan historian Msgr. Andrew A. Lambing (1842-1918) -- "Gather up the fragments [of history] that remain lest they be lost" -- which was taken from the Gospel of St. John 16:12 and adopted as the Society's journal name in December 1986.
Gathered Fragments is published once a year by The Catholic Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania, Diocese of Pittsburgh, 2900 Noblestown Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15205-4227.

Glenn Circle, $100 for sustaining members, $45 for institutional members, $35 for individual members, and $20 for women religious members.
The Society also welcomes donations to complete research, as well as to support publishing and preservation projects in local Church history.
