Fred Rogers Family Room

Help bring a Mister-Rogers presence to our Neighborhood!


Few people embody Pittsburgh Seminary’s mission of Christian hospitality better than our beloved alumnus Fred McFeely Rogers ’62. And as a reminder of Fred’s example in the Way of Jesus, we’re making a space for him right here!

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, we invite you to help fund the Fred Rogers Family Room in our newly renovated, soon-to-reopen Barbour Library! With its Neighborhood-like feel, furnishings, and outfitting, the Fred Rogers Family Room will welcome students and their families to explore reading and play that inspire loving our neighbors, welcoming strangers, and seeing every person as a child of God.

Make your donation toward our $25,000 goal today!

Through several programs in particular, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary focuses on serving others in the Way of Jesus—like Fred Rogers did throughout his lifetime:

On behalf of the entire Pittsburgh Seminary community, thank you for considering a gift to the Fred Rogers Family Room. And remember, PTS is glad to be your neighbor!
