The relics of Padre Pio, are currently touring the United States, accompanied by Fra. Gianmaria DiGiorgio, a pupil of Padre Pio who worked with him as a seminarian. There are several first class relics of Padre Pio that will be available for veneration in one large reliquary including one of his fingernails from when his body was exhumed, his hair, the gloves that covered his stigmata, and a linen cloth stained with blood from the wound in his side.
If you can’t get to one of the locations currently scheduled on the relic tour YOU CAN BRING PADRE PIO TO YOU. For more information about bringing the relics of Padre Pio to your Parish please contact Katia Felty at 570-259-9903.
Please check with the church directly for veneration times and before finalizing your plans. If the information is not on their website or the church doesn’t have a website I recommend calling directly instead of sending an email.
