Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy

“Merciful like the Father”

December 8, 2015-November 20, 2016

On the website-you will find three documents related to this jubilee year of mercy. The first is the prayer written by the Holy Father, Pope Francis for the jubilee. The second is the song we have chosen for this jubilee-“All are Welcome”, we will use it often during this year. On the back page of the song are the 7 holy doors located in our diocese. If you cannot make a pilgrimage to Rome during this holy year, you can do a pilgrimage here in our diocese, using any or all of these holy doors. Third is a document with excerpts from the papal bull written by the Holy Father in declaring this year of mercy. It is well worth reading. You can find the entire document by going to this website: Bull of Indiction
