Jubilee of Mercy

Jubilee Year of Mercy

Pope Francis has decided to announce an Extraordinary Jubilee which has at its centre the mercy of God. It will be a Holy Year of Mercy. We want to live in the light of the word of the Lord: “Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful” (cf. Lk 6:36). And this especially applies to confessors! So much mercy!

This Holy Year will commence on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception Dec, 8th, and will conclude on Sunday, 20 November 2016, the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe and living face of the Father's mercy.'

What are we supposed to do? 

First, Pope Francis has written a Prayer for the Year of Mercy. You could make a commitment to pray this prayer regularly. You can find the prayer at www.im.va/content/gdm/en/giubileo/preghiera.html (link is external).

Secondly, the Year of Mercy is the perfect time to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. St Gabriel's Parish Every Saturday after 10.30 Mass or by request
