Queens Cluster Parishes Honor Padre Pio


A statue of St. Padre Pio was carried through the streets of Glendale as about 500 people from the Glendale-Middle Village cluster of parishes honored St. Padre Pio on his feast day, Sept. 23. Msgr. Steven Aguggia, pastor of St. Margaret parish, Middle Village, was the main celebrant and homilist of the Mass at St. Pancras Church. He told the participants that “we can endure anything in life and we have the example of someone like Padre Pio who put his trust and hope in Jesus Christ.” (Photos © Ed Wilkinson)
