What Are You Doing for the Year of Mercy?
The Papal Year of Mercy offers us a profoundly unique opportunity to bring the
Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy to life in our parishes. Six of the
7 Corporal Works of Mercy are found in Matthew 25, the final judgement.
Bulletin Announcements you can use in Preparation for December:
Practicing Mercy during December 2015
Pope Francis has declared a Jubilee Year of Mercy to begin on December 8, 2015 and continue through November 20, 2016. Catholics throughout the archdiocese are invited to practice a different Work of Mercy each month. For December the Work of Mercy is “Instruct the Ignorant.” Take this Mercy Action: Reflect on who around you is misinformed or confused about the faith and lovingly share with them your zeal for Jesus and his Church.
Year of Mercy Opening Mass
Please join us in prayer at the Year of Mercy Opening Mass on Tuesday, December 8, 2015, 5:15 p.m., at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, 812 N. Jackson St., Milwaukee. Archbishop Jerome Listecki will formally open the Year of Mercy with a proclamation and a blessing of the Cathedral “Holy Door.” The Mass will begin with a beautiful new song commissioned specifically for the Year of Mercy.
