Mass in Honor of St. Padre Pio

The Saint Pio Foundation sponsored a tour with some of St. Padre Pio relics on display for veneration at St. Paul Cathedral in Pittsburgh. St. Pio was born on May 25, 1887 in Pietrelcina, Italy and baptized Francesco Forgione. His Father Grazio Forgione emigrated in 1899 to New Castle where he worked for several years in order to help pay for his education. More information about St. Pio is at
