UPDATED: Parish Pilgrimages to St. Paul Cathedral During The "Year of Mercy"
Kindly note the correspondence you received from Monsignor Ecker last year on the "Year of Mercy." The memo includes a schedule of Sundays
when your parish will be remembered in prayer at the Cathedral during this Extraordinary Holy Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis. While you and your parishioners are welcome at the Cathedral at any time, your scheduled Sunday may be an opportune time for parishioners to visit, walk through the Holy Door, and gain, if they wish, the plenary indulgence tied to the "Year of Mercy." Please publicize for your parishioners the information from the Very Rev. Michael Ibach, our Judicial Vicar, in English
, on how the indulgence may be gained. If you would like to adjust your assigned date, contact Monsignor Ecker.
