Padre Pio seminar focuses on steps to holiness

PORT ST. LUCIE - Faithful within the Diocese of Palm Beach attended a seminar on St. Pio of Pietrelcina that was held at Holy Family Church in Port St. Lucie, June 10, 2021. The seminar’s focus was on Padre Pio’s prayer for healing and the saint’s six steps for spiritual growth and holiness.

Father Cyrus Gallagher, a Franciscan Capuchin priest from Colorado Springs, celebrated Mass, heard confessions and led the seminar on the beloved saint.
