St. Pio of Pietrelcina Chapel

The St. Pio Chapel is an L-shape structure that looks like two separate buildings due to different wall designs. The building on the right has walls that look like it was made-up several smooth stones of different shapes. The recess at the center of this wall has two doors to inside the chapel. Above the recess is a goldtone statue of St. Pio and above it, on the roof is a statue of Jesus depicting his ascension to heaven. The structure on the left, which is perpendicular to the structure on the right, is smooth and beige with several small windows and several doors on the ground level. On the center of the roof of this structure is a white statue of a hooded figure with a child: maybe St. Joseph or St. Anthony of Padua carrying baby Jesus.

Photo Gallery

The welcome sign of St. Pio Chapel that can be seen while walking on the sidewalk along E. Rodriguez Avenue (C5). It's the concrete part of the wall between a creek and a Petron gasoline station. The concrete has a frame on its cavity with a portrait of Padre Pio in brown Franciscan robe and the word WELCOME in green letters below the portrait.The sanctuary of St. Pio Chapel is small and simple, surrounded by a white metal fence and elevated by only one step from the nave. Its floor is made of white tiles just like the nave. The altar is draped with a white cloth, and there is one brown lectern on the left (as seen from the nave) with goldtone decoration. The wall at the back of the sanctuary is made of rough brown and gray bricks of irregular shapes. A crucifix is attached to its center, with light coming from the back of the crucifix. The tabernacle is a small goldtone box on the center-right of the rough wall. The wall on the left just outside the sanctuary has a portrait of Mary with baby Jesus, while the right of the sanctuary has a statue of Padre Pio in priest's garment praying.Six bundles of rosaries mounted on metallic rods on display inside St. Pio Chapel. From left to right: faded pink rosaries, bright pink rosaries, green and white rosaries, purple rosaries, red rosaries, and yellow rosaries. The metal rod where the green and white rosaries are mounted has a hole on top, in which a rose is inserted. The other metal rods have similar holes; probably for the same purpose since below them, there is a sign that reads: fresh flowers only.A depiction of the death of Jesus, the twelfth station of the cross. Here's a statue of Jesus in crucifix with Mary on the left and apostle John on the right. The statues are goldtone in color and are inside a white metallic house-like structure with pillars and roof. The roof is made of red tiles, with a small white statue of an angel and the Roman numeral XII in front. Several plants surround the metallic structure.A statue of Saint Roch within the churchyard of St. Pio Chapel. He is wearing a red bonnet, a brown robe, and black cloak. He is holding a staff with a bag of coin near the top. His left knee is exposed, and a dog is leaning on his right leg. He is also wearing an orange cross pendant. The dove on his shoulder in this picture is a real dove; one of the several doves that roam the churchyard.
