  • Oct. 1: One Day Retreat for Women, St. Mary's in Wyalusing

    Fr. Pio Mandato and Sister Theresa May will lead this event. The themes are: The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:4) and The Lord Jesus comes to us in his Holy Mother Mary; The Holy Eucharist and the Holy Virgin (Jesus and Mary are the center of being disciples of the Lord), and we reflect on being loving and living disciples of the Lord Jesus and His mother. Father and Sister will explore what this means for women in particular.

    There will be time of prayer, and fellowship with other women; morning Mass; opportunity for Sacramental Confession; Eucharistic adoration followed by a Healing Service with St. Padre Pio’s glove. Plan to arrive at 8:30 am to prepare for 9 am Mass; lunch is included; a free will offering will be accepted. The day concludes at 2 pm.

    1. Pio Mandato, FMHJ is a Franciscan priest living as a missionary hermit; born in Italy, he received First Communion from (St.) Padre Pio before coming to the USA. Ordained a Capuchin in 1985, he has lived 20 years a life of prayer as a hermit in solitude, at times going forth to preach.

    Sister Theresa May (Capuchin Sisters of Nazareth) from Brooklyn entered Franciscan Missionaries of the Infant Jesus in 1969. After formation in Italy, she returned to the U.S. to teach. The Capuchin Sisters of Nazareth is a apostolic contemplative community devoted to prayer and poverty, currently located in Tunkannock.
