8th Annual Padre Pio Festival

September 17 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Eighth Annual Padre Pio Festival
St. Bede the Venerable Parish
September 16-17, 2023

Saint Bede the Venerable Church, located in Holland, Pennsylvania (Bucks County, Northampton Township), welcomes all to its Eighth Annual Festival to honor St. Pio of Pietrelcina, better known as “Padre Pio,” on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 16 and 17. The two-day event begins with Saturday’s All-American Picnic Buffet (tickets will be sold at the event), featuring games and amusements for children, food and craft vendors, and live music. The highlight will be a 5:30pm Vigil Mass, followed by blessings with holy relics of Padre Pio.

The Sunday 12:30pm Solemn Mass will be extra special this year, as it will be celebrated by Most Reverend Nelson J. Perez, Archbishop of Philadelphia. The Mass is followed by a street procession with a statue of Padre Pio through the surrounding neighborhood. After the procession, there will be a healing service with confessions and veneration of holy relics. All day there will be specialty food and craft vendors, amusements for children, and live musical entertainment.

Plenty of free parking will be available, and pilgrim buses are welcome. For more information, go online to padrepiofestivalhollandpa.com, or call the St. Bede parish office at 215-357-5720.
