ABOUT ST. Padre Pio
Padre Pio was born May 25, 1887 in Pietrelcina, Southern Italy. He was ordained a priest in August 1910. In September 1916, he was assigned to the agricultural community of San Giovanni Rotondo as part of the Our Lady of Grace Capuchin Friary. On September 20, 1918, he received the five wounds of our Lord’s passion, which would stay with him for his remaining 50 years. He was the first stigmatized priest in the history of the church.

Fr. George Parayil was born on May 10th, 1970, in Kallara, a small village in Kerala, one of India’s southern provinces. He is his parent’s (Mr.Chandy and Mrs.Chinnamma) eighth child, and he has seven brothers as well as two sisters. He is not the only one in his family to follow religious life, however, as one of his eldest sisters has become a religious Nun, while one of his younger brothers serves as a priest in the Diocese of Khandwa, India. George also completed his High School and Pre- Degree studies in Kerala, India.
At the age of eighteen, Fr. George joined the congregation of the Sons of the Immaculate Conception, and completed his philosophical studies at Dharmaram Vidyashetram, Pontifical Athenaeum for Philosophy and Theology in Bangalore. He secured his degree in BPH and graduated with a B.A in Sociology at the University of Calicut, and later completed his theological studies at ViJnananilayam, the institute of Philosophy and Theology, earning himself a degree of BTH.
He was ordained a deacon in May 1996, and roughly a year later on May 7th, 1997, was ordained into Priesthood at St. Thomas Church, Kallara, by his Lordship Mar Kuriakose Kunnasserry, Bishop of Kottayam Diocese.
After the ordination, he was appointed as the Superior of various communities in the congregation of the Sons of the Immaculate Conception, Rector of the minor Seminary, and the secretary of the provincial superior.
On June 10th, 2002, Fr. George was transferred to Rome to take part in an Italian course. Only a month later, on July 15th, he was officially appointed as the associate pastor of the Epiphany of Our Lord Parish in Toronto. After four years of service in Epiphany of Our Lord Parish, he was appointed the associate pastor of the Immaculate Conception Parish in Woodbridge.
On September 22nd, 2007, he returned to Epiphany of Our Lord Parish as Pastor, and after seven years of his ministry there, he was appointed as the Pastor of Transfiguration of Our Lord Parish in Etobicoke. Now, on June 28th, 2022, Archbishop Cardinal Collins has appointed him a Pastor here at St. Padre Pio Parish, where he looks forward to many years of ministry in our community.
