Welcome to The Clement, home to Pittsburgh area affordable elegant weddings.

The original St. Clement Church was founded in 1903 as a Slovak parish. In 1992, the church was closed and eventually purchased in 2005, by Raffaello Follieri, an Italian real estate mogul. The current owner, Phillip Rhodes purchased the facility in 2016. He has been working hard to renovate it with his crew ever since.

The main floor of the church is 2700 SF of space. Overlooking the main floor is the choir loft, once home to a 90-member choir. This provides an additional 600 SF of space. The church has a handicapped ramp entrance to the side of the church in addition to the front entrance. Another side entrance opens to a landscaped garden featuring pebble paths and re-used marble pieces from the interior. The catering kitchen is located in the rear of the church and has its own entrance.
