St. Pio Prayer Groups

As part of our mission to propagate devotion to St. Pio of Pietrelcina, we have formed and assisted in the formation of Prayer Groups throughout the Philippines and in the neighboring Asian countries.

At the moment, there are approximately 70 prayer groups acknowledged by the Philippine Centre, including the ones in Singapore, Japan and Abu Dhabi.

All St. Pio Prayer Groups are given a Certificate of Acknowledgement and Recognition by the St. Pio Centre (Metro Manila, Philippines) and a Diploma of Aggregation from Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza (San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy).

If you are interested to form a prayer group in your area, please see the requirements listed below:

  • Duly accomplished application form with complete signatures of the Group Leader, Parish Priest, Spiritual Director, Diocesan Bishop and Area Representative of the St. Pio Centre.
  • List of at least 15 members, complete with full names, addresses and contact details.
  • Prayer Group name must be: St. Pio Prayer Group of Barangay / Town / Municipality of Province.
