St. Bede the Venerable Parish in Holland (Southampton) will host its fourth annual Padre Pio festival on Sept. 14 and 15.

The weekend-long event will publicly exhibit for all pilgrims the private collection of relics of Padre Pio, which are normally housed in the Philadelphia Monastery of the Carmelite Sisters.

The collection includes Padre Pio’s glove, tunic, blood particles from his stigmata and a cushion he used to kneel when praying for the sick.

Special festival Masses will be held on Sept. at 5:30 p.m. and Sept. 15 at 12:30 p.m., with Fr. Pio Mandato as homilist.

A street procession and healing service, with confession and blessings with the relics, will follow the Sunday Mass.

Buses are welcome. The event features plenty of free parking, food vendors, live free entertainment, tents and tables.
