Padre Pio devotees help seminarians

Padre Pio Payer Groups in Gozo gathered at Our Lady of Graces Sanctuary in Victoria to mark the birthday of Padre Pio of Pietrelcina. A concelebrated Mass was led by Fr Philip Cutajar, the Capuchin Missions Secretary in Malta, assisted by Fr Remigio Galea, spiritual director of the Victoria prayer group and Fr Spiridione Galea. On behalf of all prayer groups and devotees Vincent Vella (pictured) presented Fr Cutajar with a donation to cover 11 bursaries to help Capuchin seminarians in Kenya. The Mass was animated by Mario Caruana and his daughter Maria. Padre Pio devotees from around the world are this year commemorating the 100th anniversary of the saint’s stigmata (September 20, 1918) and the 50th anniversary of his death (September 23, 1968).
