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!

    Any clergy that does not serve in the Diocese of Allentown is required to obtain a “Letter of Good Standing” from the (arch)diocese in which he serves.
