"I am the wheat of God. I must become the bread of Christ." -St. Ignatius of Antioch

Padre Pio Prayer Group

Padre Pio established prayer groups in 1949 as a source of constant prayer and focus on charity.


The St. Ignatius of Antioch parish prayer group was established in November, 2022. We are registered with the Centre of the Padre Pio Prayer Groups in San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy.


Our Spiritual Advisor is Father Joseph Mary Paek, OSB, and our group leader is parishioner Kath Mauk.


We meet during First Friday Adoration at 6:30 p.m. to pray the rosary followed by mass at 7:00 p.m. which is said for the intentions of the group.

We have monthly meetings on the following Wednesday - the Wednesday following First Friday Adoration - from 7:00 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. in rooms 2 and 3.


Additional group information can be found in the bulletin, on Facebook at Padre Pio Prayer Group at St. Ignatius, Tarpon Springs, or by contacting Kath at 216-214-4127
