Reminder: Padre Pio’s relics to stop in Wisconsin: La Crosse 20 Sept; Milwaukee 21 Sept

A glove and blood-stained cotton gauze are among the relics of St. Pio of Pietrelcina — better known as “Padre Pio” — that will be on display Sept. 20 in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and Sept. 21 in Milwaukee.

The relics have been on tour in the United States and will be traveling to 11 dioceses this fall. The relics will not be stopping in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

They will be on display 9 a.m.–7 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. Joseph the Workman in La Crosse and 9 a.m. –9 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Milwaukee.

Also displayed for veneration will be “crusts” from St. Pio’s wounds, a lock of his hair, his mantle and a handkerchief that was soaked with his sweat hours before he died in 1968.
