Driving Directions:

From Center City Johnstown

Follow PA Rt 271 north, approximately 2 miles. The Conemaugh River will be crossed 3 times during these 2 miles; the third bridge crossing leads into East Conemaugh and Rt 271 becomes Main St in East Conemaugh. The new gold domes should be visible when crossing the Conemaugh bridge, looking to the left side. Proceed to the traffic light at the corner of Main and First Sts, turn left onto First. The Church is located 1/2 block from this point on the left hand side.

From Pittsburgh area and points west of Johnstown

Follow US Rt 22 east to PA Rt 56 east, and follow this into Johnstown (entering city from West end). Then follow directions from center city above.

Alternative from points west

Follow US Rt 30 east to Ligonier; then follow PA Rt 711 east approximately 3 miles to junction with Rt 271 north. Follow this into Johnstown, and follow above directions from center city.

Utilizing US Rt 219 from the south
