ST. PADRE PIO RELICS TO TOUR UNITED STATES AND CANADA

The Saint Pio Foundation has announced that the tour of the relics of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina – better known as Padre Pio – will resume in several archdioceses and dioceses in the United States and Canada this year from May 1 to June 15 and again from September 15 to November 15. The 2019 tour follows two years of tours that attracted more than a half million of the faithful.

The relics of Saint Pio available for public veneration include: his glove, the crusts of his wounds, cotton gauze bearing his blood stains, a lock of his hair, his mantle, and his handkerchief soaked with his sweat only hours before he died.
