“The Mother of Sorrows is my confidante, my teacher, my counselor, and my powerful advocate." Saint Padre Pio
The History of this Website
This website was created in October 2019 for St. Mary's Padre Pio Prayer Group in Vancouver by the Ministry Coordinator. This page shows all the prayer group's activities from inception in October 2016 up to October 2021. After the October 2, 2021 prayer meeting, the prayer group decided not to use a website. But this website is kept alive to provide information about St. Padre Pio, a wonderful spiritual Father to many.
The Upcoming Prayer Meeting This page was the main promotion page for the PPPG Prayer Group event up to October 2, 2021. The inviting title and what could you learn from this particular spiritual talk and the information of the keynote presenter. An e-poster was there to help participants to get ready for the prayer meeting.
Presenters In this page was presented many of our keynote presenters, who prepared, came or delivered inspiring talks every month. The prayer group was so blessed!
The Past Prayer Meeting If you were interested to discover what were the past topics being presented up to October 2021, here is the page.
The Prayer Intentions We asked the members of the prayer group to pray for five intentions, we had a team of writers and the final approval would come from the our Spiritual Director. If you want to know, what we prayed in the past, check this page out.
The Blogs Our Spiritual Director, our PPPG Bloggers and Fr. Luciano Lotti, OFM Cap wrote many beautiful short reflections, I am keeping this page so that you can read and hopefully one or more reflections will help you to grow in your faith.
Gallery Before pandemic, we were meeting in-person, so here were the collections of photo or short clips about the prayer meeting from the conception of the prayer group on October 1, 2016 up to February 2020 (when the pandemic started). Enjoy!
