UPDATED 4/18/2020
Dear Devotees of St. Pio,
Due to the outbreak and quick spread of the Coronavirus in our area, all indoor visitor areas of the National Centre for Padre Pio will be CLOSED to the public until further notice (visitors are still welcome to visit the Centre to pray at our outdoor shrines and candle prayer garden). Note that our offices will remain staffed; our phones are still up and running, and we will be here answering your calls and taking your prayer petitions to place on one of Padre Pio’s gloves. We will also continue to keep religious items available and fulfill orders, including Padre Pio Blessed Holy Oil, relic prayer leaflets, rosaries, medals, and scapulars. Additionally, we will continue to fulfill requests for Masses as well as for us to light votive candles to burn in our candle garden for your intentions. We may be reached at 610-845-3000 or info@padrepio.org from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.

We especially invite you to join us in prayer every day, as we pray the Rosary, the Efficacious Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Prayer to St. Pio, and the Prayer to Combat the Coronavirus via live video each day at 11:30 AM EST, as well as the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3:00 PM EST. Simply click on the blue Facebook Icon at the top right of our homepage (note that you don’t need to have a Facebook account to watch our broadcast; if you don’t have a Facebook account and don’t want to create one, simply click “Not Now” when prompted to create an account).

 Yours in Jesus, Mary, and St. Pio of Pietrelcina,

The Calandra Family, Executive Director Nick Gibboni, and the Staff of the National Centre for Padre Pio
