San Antonio, Texas:  Shrine of Saint Padre Pio

 

About the Shrine of Padre Pio of Pietrelcina:

Officially established on August 15, 1981 the first Mass was held in a local school cafeteria on September 23, 2001.  In 2008, the current worship space (as well as six religious education buildings) was dedicated, and then in 2014 they added more classrooms as well as additional facilities.

Plans continue for a new worship space that will be the largest in the Archdiocese of San Antonio.  It will be patterned after the Church in San Giovanni Rotondo and have seating for over 2,000 people in the main sanctuary along with a daily Mass chapel.  Stained-glass windows, a life-size replica of the Pieta and other features will make it a very special place to honor Saint Padre Pio.
