Mision de Asociacion Padre Pio


It is creating a humanitarian hospital for the care of all people regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, social status, political or economic background under the motto of "caring for the body to heal the soul", working with government entities responsible for providing healthcare in order to care for the illness of the human being at the psychological, social, physical and spiritual level.

Our organization aims to raise funds for the creation of a hospital inspired by the work of Padre Pio "House for the Relief of Suffering" which was founded in 1956 in Italy and continues to provide care to all without cost to patients living in poverty. In addition, the healthcare model is unique in the world, where the human being is treated holistically, as a person, body and soul, and must be addressed both equally. The medical group is distinguished by humanitarian and spiritual qualities unique in the world, a model of care and professionalism we seek to develop in Costa Rica with a medical facility for further medical education in Costa Rica and Central America.

The New Evangelization

"The message of Christ means above all to be witness of Him through our lives. This is the easiest way to preach the Gospel and the most profitable for you ... The world today has a special need of credible witnesses." These words of Pope John Paul II are among the many messages he conveyed in life to begin the "new evangelization" in the Catholic Church. Given the changes in the lifestyles of the modern world, John Paul II considered a need for a "new evangelization" that should be carried out by all Catholics, to spread the message of Christ in our own lives and actions.
