On this Day of Renewal, Father Pio Mandato, a Franciscan Missionary Hermit of Saint Joseph, will share with us his personal experiences of living in Padre Pio’s hometown of Pietrelcina, Italy, receiving his First Holy Communion from Padre Pio, and celebrating his first Mass at the very same church and altar where Saint Pio had celebrated his first Mass. Our day includes Mass, conferences, Exposition and Benediction, opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

Father Pio will also give us an account of his mother’s spiritual friendship with Padre Pio that is conveyed in her memoir, Padre Pio Encounters with a Spiritual Daughter from Pietrelcina. Purchase her book from our Gift Shop at the National Centre or click HERE to order it online.
