Padre Pio Prayer Group

St. Mary’s Padre Pio Prayer Group is affiliated with the International Padre Pio Prayer Group in San Giovanni Rotondo founded by Padre Pio himself.

Fr. Pierre Leblond, OP as the first Spiritual Director had chosen to focus in the intercessory prayer – the Call to stand in the Gap — to continue the works that Padre Pio started years ago to help souls to meet Christ.

Fr. Gabriel de Chadarévian, OP, the current Spiritual Director has decided to continue to support the same Church’s mission.

All members of the Prayer Group are considered as the Spiritual Children of Padre Pio, and as his spiritual children we will pray asking for his intercession, speak about him, want to know more about the many extraordinary things God wrought through him, encourage others to have devotion to him and above all to imitate him.

How do we imitate the love of Padre Pio for the Eucharist, Our Lady of Grace and souls?

Let’s meet once a month to get to know Saint Pio, the marvelous works that God is continuously doing through him, his friends’ testimonies that will strengthen us, and other supporting talks that will deepen our knowledge about interceding for others.


Will you stand in the gap and be the helpers in the salvation of for those souls who need assistance?

Come and join us every first Saturday of the month at Church Hall at 9:30AM (begins with Mass at 8:30AM) and be the spiritual children of Padre Pio!
