Experience Peace, Tranquility & Healing at the Home of Padre Pio in the USA

The National Centre for Padre Pio is a scenic spiritual destination honoring one of the most beloved Saints of our time. Padre Pio led a life devoted to his work on the Altar and in the Confessional, embracing his role as a spiritual teacher to all. At the National Centre for Padre Pio, we continue his salvific mission by leading more souls to God in his name.

A Single Life.
An Extraordinary Faith.

His faith. His suffering. His love. His victory. The first priest in history to bear the wounds of Christ, Padre Pio was dedicated to continuing Jesus’ work of redemption. On grounds that are beautifully modeled after his friary in San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy, visitors to the National Centre are immersed in Padre Pio’s powerful faith and the setting of his humble life.

“Stay with me Lord, so that I hear your voice and follow You.”

Learn About the Man, the Priest, and the Triumphant Saint.

Padre Pio is many things to many people: a priest, a teacher, a mystic, a saint, and a friend. In our Museum & Cultural Center, we bring his story to life with the largest collection of authentic Padre Pio relics in the United States. Pilgrims can also visit Our Lady of Grace Chapel, a historically accurate Franciscan site based on Padre Pio’s own church.
