Schedule a Pilgrimage

The National Centre for Padre Pio is a scenic and spiritual destination that is ideal for parish, group, or individual pilgrimages. We welcome visitors from all creeds and walks of life, and encourage you to experience a full day filled with meditation, prayer, and the powerful presence of Padre Pio.

Whether you are traveling in a group or individually, there is no cost to visit the National Centre for Padre Pio. If you plan to make the trip with a parish or group, we simply ask that you fill out the following form so that we can prepare for your arrival. Individuals do not need to register.

Any group who is bringing a priest and would like to have Mass and/or Confession MUST contact the Centre offices during our normal business hours of Monday – Friday from 9AM to 5PM. We may be reached at (610) 845 – 3000. 

Once scheduled, we will then provide the necessary instructions which must be followed in order for your priest to be able to celebrate Mass and hear Confessions at the Centre.

From Monday to Saturday, we will not schedule Mass after 3:00 PM. On Sunday, we will not schedule Mass after 2:00 PM.

PLEASE NOTE!  In order for your pilgrimage to include Mass and/or Confessions, your group MUST be scheduled in advance; we are unable to accommodate “walk-ins” if Mass and/or Confessions are to be included.

There will be no exceptions, and we thank you in advance for your understanding!

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 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
