Pray, Hope And Don't Worry


St. Pio Days.

Please be aware that we are unable to hold any Padre Pio days this year, 2021.

Every year, Pantasaph welcomes hundreds of pilgrims who come on non-residential Saint Pio Days.
Booking is essential for these days. Please bring a packed lunch (tea, coffee and biscuits are available). Remember the British weather and please bring waterproofs and an umbrella. For more information, call 01352 711053.
In the Franciscan spirit, the Saint Pio Days are open to everyone, regardless of financial status. For those who are able, the recommended offering is £5 per head, with a £2 per head deposit.

The Saint Pio Days aim to renew the inner life we receive from Christ. Our constant discipline and struggle to be faithful to God often leave us in need of heavenly dew. Under the watchful eye of Saint Pio, there will be space for relaxation and wandering around the friary grounds, a rosary walk, confession, an opportunity for you to be prayed with and, most importantly, the Mass. The Mass was the focal point of Saint Pio's life and this is reflected in the Days. His intercession enables us to enter these mysteries more deeply and understand them better. The Saint Pio Days Of Prayer are your invitation to receive afresh the Spirit Of The Lord.
