Driveway Project

Viale Pio


May 2, 1999 – the Grand Opening of the Our Lady of Grace Chapel and Padre Pio Spirituality Centre

Our 1.5 mile “Viale Pio” driveway remains unchanged from that day and is in dire need of repair. 20 years of traffic wear and tear and snow plowing have taken its toll, and we need your help! Any offering you can provide to help fray the quarter-of-a-million dollar cost would be gratefully accepted and appreciated!

In addition to providing for the much-needed repairs to the driveway’s base coat, putting on the top coat will help to protect the integrity of the driveway for years to come. With the uptick in car and bus traffic due to the long-awaited return of the Sacraments to the Centre,
we could not wait any longer.

From June 3 through June 7, 2019 the Centre will be CLOSED to the public as this very large project gets underway.


As always, we thank you for your continued support, we assure you of our prayers,
and we will keep you updated on this project as we move forward!
