Novena to Padre Pio for Our Children

Sign up to join us for our Novena to Padre Pio for Our Children

One of the ways we are commemorating this special year of the 25th anniversary of the Beatification of Padre Pio is by praying our first ever Novena to Padre Pio for Our Children. This is a new novena prayer that was written here at the National Centre for Padre Pio and approved by our diocesan bishop, His Excellency Bishop Alfred A. Schlert of the Diocese of Allentown.

We believe a novena for children is especially important at this time in our history, with attacks on the family coming from all sides and so many of our young people being in precarious situations. Unborn children, those living in poverty, children who are victims of abuse — these are just a few of the important intentions included in this new novena.

To sign up to join us in this important prayer endeavor, fill out the form below. Beginning on the morning of April 23, the first day of the novena, you will receive an email each day with the prayers and daily intention.

We will be praying this novena in person at the Centre as well as via livestream from April 23 – May 1. This will be followed by a Mass in celebration of Padre Pio’s Beatification anniversary on May 2, celebrated by Bishop Keith J. Chylinski of Philadelphia. If you are unable to be with us in person for any portion of the event, you can watch and join in prayer with thousands of other Saint Pio devotees through our Facebook page and our YouTube Channel.


Tuesday, April 23 to Wednesday, May 1, 2024
