Saint Francis of Assisi

Relics of St. (Padre) Pio visit the National Shrine

September 24, 2023

On September 24th, we will host a visit of the relics of Padre Pio sent by the St. Pio Foundation, based in New York. Relics are a way to keep us in touch with the center of our faith, that The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus really walked on this earth, and the saints’ lives and even their remains are testimony to the God of all creation.
