At our upcoming Padre Pio Festival, we are once again honored to be the official host of the collection of relics of Padre Pio from the Monastery of the Carmelite Sisters of Philadelphia. As Mother Teresa of St. Augustine, the Superior of the Convent said, “This is too precious of a collection of relics to be simply displayed in our convent. We sisters want to be able to share this exhibit with all those who would like to feel closer to this saint of many miracles.” The collection of relics will be on display both on Saturday evening Sept. 14, 2019, as well as throughout the morning, afternoon and evening on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019, in our special Padre Pio Chapel.

Deacon Alexander Pancoast and Fr. Thomas O’Donald stand at the display of holy relics at the Carmelite Monastery.
