Padre Pio Mass & Procession June 22 "a Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, or more commonly referred to as Padre Pio was born Francesco Forgione on May 25 1887, in the farming Italian town of Pietrelcina. He is famous for bearing the stigmata and joined the Capuchins at an early age. He then left the friary to begin his studies to become a priest, which is why he is known as Padre Pio, Father Pius in Italian, a name given to him when he joined the Capuchins. His life was shrouded with illness and controversy due to his stigmata, which the Vatican doubted were real, thus prohibited him from practicing mass and hearing confession. Later in his life however, Pope Plus XI admit- ted to be misinformed and encouraged Catholics to visit Padre Pio. He was finally allowed to preach and celebrate Mass. In honor of Padre Pio, who was canonized a Saint by Saint John Paul II on June 16, 2002 and to raise funds for St. Leonard Church; the Friends of Padre Pio have organized a service. A Mass in Italian with a few words in English will be held at 10:30 am on June 22 "d at St. Leonard on Hanover Street followed by food and beverages at 12:00 pm in the downstairs hall. Tickets are $10.00 and all of the proceeds will be going to the church. A procession in celebration of Padre Pio will commence at 2:00 pm at Hanover and Prince Streets and continue throughout the streets of the North End. The chief organizer, Anna Serignano D'Amore thanks all of those who have helped put together this event, espe- cially Father Antonio. All are welcome to come lend a hand, honor Padre Pio and enjoy a good time. LETTERS POLICY The Post-Gazette invites its readers to submit Letters to the Editor.
