Wills & Bequests

Wills & Bequests

Many people inquire how they can leave a gift (commonly known as a “bequest”) to the National Centre for Padre Pio in their Will. 

Here is sample language which may be used if you would like to leave a gift to the Centre after your death:

“I give and bequeath to the National Centre for Padre Pio, Inc., Tax ID # 23-1897941, located at 111 Barto Road, (P.O. Box 206) in Barto, Pennsylvania, [“_______% of my adjusted gross estate”] [or “$_______”] [or name a specific asset] to be used for its religious and educational purposes.”

 Leaving a bequest to the National Centre for Padre Pio will help to assure that we are always able to continue in our mission of leading souls to God through our beloved Saint Pio. We are open to the public seven days a week most weeks of the year, and in addition to Masses, Benediction, Confessions, and our annual novena, we continue to make available conferences and events at no charge for the edification of visiting pilgrims.

Should you choose to leave a gift to the Centre in your will, we would be grateful if you would let us know.

Note: We strongly suggest that you consult a qualified attorney when creating or making changes to your Will.

Thank you!
