Uniting Healthcare with Holiness to Relieve Suffering
Our Casa USA Vision:
St. Pio's model of Catholic healthcare is coming to the US!
Catholic Healthcare International is planning a peaceful pilgrimage site in honor of St. Padre Pio amidst the rolling hills of Genoa Township, just outside of Howell, Michigan, and less than an hour drive from Detroit.
On this site, one will be greeted by a life-size bronze statue of St. Padre Pio under a magnificent tree. There will also be will be a replica of St. Padre Pio’s chapel in Italy, Santa Maria della Grazie, and an outdoor natural grotto with a mural of Santa Maria della Grazie. The site will offer outdoor Stations of the Cross and three scenic walking trails, all intended to provide a place of prayer in a tranquil, pastoral setting.
Well beyond this pilgrimage site, but relying on the prayers offered there, CHI plans to build a replica of St. Padre Pio’s renowned “Home for the Relief of Suffering” hospital as well as a truly Catholic medical school that will be fully faithful to the Magisterium of the Church. The plans also include a Christ Medicus Foundation National Center for Public Policy and a Terri Schiavo Home for the Brain Injured to uphold human dignity for the medically vulnerable. All of this is being done through the active collaboration of Catholic Healthcare International and the Diocese of Lansing with the blessing of St. Pio’s hospital in Italy, “Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza.”
This Casa USA campus will be a national “Beacon of Light” & model of truly faithful Catholic healthcare delivery for our country, to be emulated by other Catholic healthcare providers currently challenged by our increasingly secular culture.
Catholic Medical School
The Proposed Saint Pio Institute for the Relief of Suffering School of Osteopathic Medicine, is in the early stages of development.
This school will train generations of peaceful warriors who will stand for life and human dignity, armored with true Catholic principles and unafraid to evangelize the Good News of Jesus Christ in their practice. The Saint Padre Pio School intends, as in Luke 12:49, to “set the world afire” and revolutionize the Catholic practice of medicine.
Padre Pio said, "Prayer is the oxygen of the soul."
In keeping with Padre Pio's devotion to prayer, Casa USA is promoting several prayer initiatives:
Join us in prayer in the spirit of Padre Pio!
