We wish to welcome the Statue of Padre Pio to our parish Church, St. John's RC Church, Gravesend, Kent . Some of our wonderful parishioners have expressed the desire to have the Statue of Padre Pio installed for devotion in our Church. The Parish of St. John's has always been associated with the devotion to St. Pio.
 
We now have this statue installed in our Church and we are all happy about it. This statue came straight from Padre Pio's place, San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy.
 
A Mass of Padre Pio will be celebrated at 12.00 Noon on Wednesday, 30th September to officially bless this statue and launch his devotion in St. John's .
