On Sunday, September 23, 300 or more people converged on Saint Fidelis Friary on Guam to celebrate the Feast of Saint Padre Pio. The theme this year was "Padre Pio and the Sacred Heart." Starting on September 15 and ending on the 23rd, Fr. Eric Forbes, OFM Cap preached every night on this theme during the Mass following the novena.
An hour before Mass, the chapel was full and people had to start sitting outside.
For the benefit of those sitting outside, the liturgy was filmed and shown live on the tower wall.

Devotees all brought something to share at the dinner after the Mass.
