1963 Civic Arena Roof Open.jpg
Pittsburgh PA:  On location photography for the Council of Churches. Easter Sunrise Service at the Civic Arena with the roof open. It was amazing to be 10 years old and watch the roof slowly open at the Civic Area. The Council of Churches was a merger of three local groups; the Allegheny County Sabbath School Association, the Pittsburgh Council of Churches, and the Council of Weekday Religious Education.  The council's objection was to better relate and understand other religions including the local Jewish, African American, Catholic and Christian churches in the downtown Pittsburgh area.
