Padre Pio Family Prayer Group
Pio of Pietrelcina commonly known as Padre Pio, (25th May 1887 – 23rd September 1968) was a friar, priest, stigmatist, and mystic of the Roman Catholic Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. Padre Pio became famous for bearing the stigmata for most of his life, which generated much interest and controversy around him. He is now venerated as a saint in the Catholic Church. Pio was born Francesco Forgione, and given the name of Pius (Italian – Pio) when he joined the Capuchins. After his beatification in 1999, he was canonized by Saint John Paul II on June 16, 2002.
