The St. Francis Borgia St. Padre Pio Prayer Groups were formed after the creation of the St. Padre Pio Plaza. The groups are registered with the Padre Pio Prayer Groups Center in San Giovanni Rotondo in Italy. The members gather in prayer reciting the Rosary after the monthly Padre Pio Mass.
The Mass in Italian is on the third Saturday of every month and in Polish on the last Thursday of every month, depending on holiday schedules.
All members and visitors from across the chicago area participate in the annual Mass in June commemorating the anniversary of the Canonization of Padre Pio.
