This Gallery shows just some of what we are doing here at St Michael's to celebrate the Year of Mercy.
The Holy Year of Mercy began on 8th December 2015 on the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy is an invitation to all Christians to draw closer to Jesus who is “the face of the Father’s mercy”. We are called in many ways throughout this holy year to experience God’s mercy, through the undertaking of pilgrimages, walking through Holy Doors, and undertaking corporal and spiritual acts of mercy. The season of Lent in this Jubilee year is an opportunity to experience and celebrate God's mercy. By drawing closer to God in prayer and through undertaking acts of mercy, we hope to share God’s transforming love with every person and creature, especially those who are living in poverty. The Year of Mercy concludes on 20th November 2016, the solemnity of Christ the King.
