Free pocket-size prayer booklet for Lent

We are happy to bring you Lent with Padre Pio: Daily Reflections.

This year, we honor Padre Pio, an Italian priest who was known for his piety and charity, as well as the gift of the stigmata.

The booklet was created by our friends at our ministry, Franciscan Media written by Susan-Hines Brigger.

For those of you on our mail list, you will receive the booklet in the mail with our printed February appeal.  If you are not on the list and would like a copy please sign up.

“Mt. Airy” is the familiar name for the National Shrine of St. Anthony and Friary sitting on a hill above Cincinnati. The shrine had its start in the late 1880s, when Joseph and Elizabeth Nurre bought what was then a country estate for $18,000 and gave it to the Franciscan friars.

About the Friars

The 130 friars of St. John the Baptist Province (SJB) are members of the Order of Friars Minor. We are a Franciscan brotherhood inspired by the 13th-century example of St. Francis of Assisi. We serve the Catholic Church as brothers and priests in a communal life of poverty, prayer, and service to others.
