St Pio Devotion
From the beginning of his pontificate, Pope Pius XII exhorted the faithful to gather together and pray often as a community. Padre Pio accepted and responded to this call by encouraging the faithful to gather in groups and pray according to the request of the Holy Father.
Today, the prayer groups which Padre Pio founded have produced great fruits of faith and devotion in many parts of the world.
In Singapore, we continue to respond to this call by gathering together every 23rd of the month and praying together.
Padre Pio said, "After my death I will do more. My real mission will begin after my death."
Padre Pio's spirit continues this promise which is confirmed by the testimonies of countless people who have received graces through his intercession.
Pope Benedict XVI said, "Spurred on and sustained by the example of Padre Pio and by his intercession, do your best to emulate him in order to help all to live a profound spiritual experience, centered on contemplation of the Crucified Christ, revealer and mediator of the merciful love of the Heavenly Father."
"Pray, hope and don't worry" was Padre Pio's constant advice to those who sought his help.
His spiritual counsel was always simple, yet filled with divine wisdom. It seemed that the great number of Padre Pio's spiritual children throughout the world is steadily growing.
His feast day is on 23rd Sept. He died on 23rd Sept 1968.
Currently, our St Pio Devotion is held on every 23rd of the month at the following churches:
1) Our Lady of Lourdes Church @7.00pm at St Bernadette Hall
2) Our Lady of Perpetual Succour @ 6.45pm (after mass)
3) St Anne's Church @ 6.45pm
And our St Pio Home Devotion is held on:
1) every 1st Saturday of the Month @ Kovan Residences
2) every 2nd Thursday of the Month @ Equatorial
St Pio Devotion Singapore, in solidarity with the Padre Pio Prayer Group of the Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, and all Padre Pio Prayer Group throughout the world, invites all devotees to gather on June 15, 2017, eve of the 15th anniversary of the Canonization of St. Pio, for a night of Eurcharistic Adoration, Recitation of the Holy Rosary, and Eucharistic Celebration.
As Padre Pio says, “Pray much, my children, pray always, without tiring, because I entrust to prayer this Work that God has wanted and that will continue to sustain itself and prosper through the assistance of Divine Providence and the spiritual and charitable contribution of all the souls that are praying.”
