Members of the St Pio Prayer Group  met this evening, Tuesday 20th April, at 7.00 in St Leo’s house.    After their devotions, including attention to the needs of those who are in need of prayer and support, they caught up with the news since their last meeting before Easter, and then with much laughter  celebrated the birthdays of three of their members, Ellen, Noreen and Margaret.   It will be of interest to members to know that today the remains of St Pio, Padre Pio, were removed to a new resting place in  the new Church of St. Pio of Pietrelcina which offers more space for pilgrims and easier access to the disabled. Padre Pio’s tomb is the third most visited Catholic site in the world, after the Vatican and the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.
