On May 5th, 2018 Mons. Michele Castoro, Archbishop of San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy and President of St. (Padre) Pio’s Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, passed away in St. Pio’s hospital after a battle with cancer.  Mons. Castoro was named Archbishop and President of the Casa Hospital Foundation in 2009, the same year that we formalized our Collaboration Agreement with the leadership of the hospital to replicate St. Pio’s model of Catholic healthcare in the United States.  He was a strong supporter of our Casa USA vision and will be dearly missed by our Casa USA family.  May he rest in peace!
