LaBeouf was all smiles as he toured the Catholic sites associated with St. Pio of Pietrelcina.
In the summer of 2021, the Shia LaBeouf was secured for the title role of an upcoming biopic on St. Pio of Pietrelcina, affectionately known to Catholics as Padre Pio. Soon after, the Transformers star spent some time with a group of Franciscans from Northern California, to research and get into the role. In August, he made a brief video to express how moved he was by the brothers’ faith.
Now, the Capuchin Franciscans of the Western American Province of Our Lady of Angels are sharing a pilgrimage they took with LaBeouf. Photos of the trip were shared by Father Hai Ho through his Instagram page. The shots show a cheerful crew with LaBeouf dressed in the brown robes of the Order of Friars Minor.
