Relics of St. Pio, better known as Padre Pio, have been touring in the Americas for the past two years, venerated by more than 500,000 faithful Catholics. They will visit Kansas City’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception May 15.

The relics — Padre Pio’s glove, crusts of his wounds, cotton gauze with blood stains, a lock of his hair, his mantle and a handkerchief soaked with his sweat in the hours before his death — will be available for veneration from 11 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. Bishop James V. Johnston, Jr., will celebrate Mass in honor of St. Pio at 7 p.m. The St. Pio Foundation, sponsor of the tour, will provide books and other items related to Padre Pio in the Cathedral narthex.
