In honor of the 50th anniversary of the death of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, better known as Padre Pio, his relics are being displayed in dioceses across the U.S. The relics of this modern-day saint, who is beloved around the world, will be at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle, St. Petersburg, for one day, Friday, November 2, All Souls’ Day.
Six relics of the saint have been brought from Italy to the United States for the first time. All are invited to come and venerate these official relics of St. Pio and to participate in the celebration of Mass with Bishop Gregory Parkes.
The relics will be on display for veneration from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Mass will be celebrated in honor of St. Pio at 6:30 p.m. The Saint Pio Foundation, which is sponsoring the relics tour, will sell books and items related to Padre Pio in the entryway of the Cathedral.
