LOUISVILLE, Ky.--Pittsburgh Presbytery has topped the $3 million mark in 
gifts to The Bicentennial Fund of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). 
     Two other presbyteries -- Chicago and Philadelphia -- passed the $2 
million mark, according to year-end 1995 figures released by The 
Bicentennial Fund office here. 
     Those figures show Pittsburgh Presbytery with total receipts of 
$3,074,006.  Of that money, more than $500,000 was given to General 
Assembly projects, more than $100,000 for Synod of the Trinity projects, 
and more than $2 million for projects in the presbytery. 
     Chicago Presbytery's receipts came to $2,141,795 and Philadelphia 
Presbytery's to $2,117,553. 
     Several presbyteries have exceeded the $1 million mark in the 
campaign, whose total goal is $150 million.  They are: Grace Presbytery 
($1,832,948), Detroit Presbytery ($1,699,497), Cascades Presbytery 
($1,381,023), National Capital Presbytery ($1,069,204) and Whitewater 
Valley Presbytery ($1,031,444). 
     Presbyteries getting close to the $1 million level include Baltimore, 
New Covenant, Western New York, Central Florida, East Iowa, Carlisle, 
Cincinnati and Elizabeth.
