We promote devotion to St. Philomena. This virgin martyr gave her life for Jesus Christ as an early Martyr of the Church. She is known as Powerful with God. You can pray to her for all causes, spiritual and temporal, and she will hear your prayer. St. John Vianney said: “To Saint Philomena God refuses nothing.”
The Universal Archconfraternity of Saint Philomena, Philomenian Family in the World, is an international movement of faithful that, through the devotion to our Martyr, promotes love to Jesus and Mary. The single Centers, through their local autonomy, promote the devotion to the Saint and are of support to the work of the Sanctuary.
To support the upkeep of the Sanctuary we organize worldwide events and pilgrimages to the Sanctuary of St. Philomena’s Pilgrim Centre situated within the Sanctuary. We visit many beautiful shrines and places in Southern Italy along with a visit to the home of our faith, St. Peter’s Basilica and an audience with Pope Frances, if in residence.
