Center dedicated to Padre Pio inaugurated in Brazil

.- On Saturday a huge center dedicated to Padre Pio, including a church, a school and a clinic was inaugurated in the Brazilian town of Autazes.

According to the Fides news agency, the center is part of the program “Padre Pio Missionary in the world”, which built a similar structure at Thakimagre, in India.

There is a strong devotion to St. Padre Pio among the faithful in this area, located in the center of the Amazon forest, 12 hours by boat from the main regional city Manaus.

The new structure will be at the service of the local people, women and children in particular, for their human, spiritual and cultural growth, Fides reported.

The inaugural ceremony will be presided by Bishop Alfonso Ribeiro, in charge of the Apostolic Prelature of Borba, in the presence of local Catholics, authorities and a delegation of benefactors from Italy .

The project is also supported by the Pontifical Holy Childhood Mission Society.
