Padre Pio Relics on Display

From: Wednesday, May 8 8:30 AM
To: Wednesday, May 8 4:30 PM

The relics of Saint Pio – also known as Padre Pio – will be available for viewing at St. Ambrose Cathedral, on Wednesday, May 8, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.  A Mass in honor of Saint Pio will be celebrated at 5:00 pm by Bishop Richard Pates. Please note: the relics will not be available for veneration after the Mass.

The relics of Saint Pio include: Saint Pio’s glove, crusts of his wounds, cotton-gauze with his blood stains, a lock of his hair, his mantle, and his handkerchief soaked with his sweat hours before he died.

The Saint Pio Foundation, which is sponsoring this event, will provide books and items related to Padre Pio in the Catholic Pastoral Center at 601 Grand Avenue, just south of the cathedral. This is also where group tours will start.
