The Padre Pio Prayer group was formed in response to the spiritual needs of our times, as perceived by St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina a mirror of Christ, to promote the spreading of the teaching of Christ, who repeatedly insisted on the necessity of Prayer. We wish to strengthen our faith through the gift of God’s love, St. Padre Pio, to the church. We are called to sanctify ourselves through prayer and evangelization. A willingness to share in the suffering of Christ, as means of reparation. Sharing your gifts can edify us. Prayer is the best weapon we possess; it is the key which opens the way to God’s heart. The Padre Pio Prayer group meets the 1st Tuesday of the month at 9:45 AM in O'Connor Hall with Holy Mass at 9:00 AM. The Rosary and a devotional to Padre Pio are said before Mass starting at 8:30 AM. The group has various bible studies, visits the sick and elderly at nursing homes and within our parish. We are also offer service for many parishioners that are in need of company or various errands for those that are home bound or ill. Please contact Jolynn Coiro for information in joining our group by calling the Church Office at 334-365-8680. This group is open to anyone that has a love in their heart for prayer and to help those less fortunate.
