The Holy Year of Mercy Door at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart

The Jubilee of Mercy was announced by Pope Francis as a year to be lived intensely in each particular Church, allowing every person to encounter the mercy of God the Father through diligent labor for the Church's mission there.  The most evident sign of this pastoral care is the chance to open a Door of Mercy in every diocese.  These doors, analogous to the Holy Doors of the Papal Basilicas in Rome, will permit even people who cannot travel to Rome to make a Jubilee pilgrimage.  

At The Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, The Door of Mercy is ritually closed now until December 13 when Bishop Quinn will open it for the Year of Mercy.
