Christmas Decorations – Thank you!

Categories: Homepage Feature, Other

Through the Nativity of Our Lord, we welcomed into the world, Jesus, the light of all nations, the light of all generations, the light that overcomes all darkness.

We were able to celebrate our Christmas masses in a wonderfully  decorated and brilliantly illuminated church.

A big ‘Thank you’ to the volunteers who gave up their time and worked so hard to put up and arrange the beautiful decorations.

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina Prayer Cenacle

Categories: Homepage Feature, Liturgical

Join us the first and third Wednesdays of the month 6:00 – 8:00 PM.

On a September morning in 1918, praying before the Crucifix in the choir of the old church, Padre Pio received the gift of the stigmata, or visible wounds of the crucifixion, that remained in his body, fresh and bleeding, for half a century, until his death September 23, 1968.

The Holy Father John Paul II granted the title of “Venerable” on December 18, 1997, and he was canonized a saint on June 16, 2002.

The Shrine has held a prayer service to Padre Pio for many years.  Many pilgrims place their intentions in his care.  Join us the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
