Dear Friends:

With the announcement of Pope Francis on the Second Sunday of Easter – Divine Mercy Sunday – of the upcoming "Year of Mercy," kindly know that part of my Confirmation homily will touch on the theme of mercy. For this reason during weekday Confirmations I am asking the deacon or priest to proclaim John 20:19-31 as the Gospel.  Click here for English or Spanish.

As a point of information, although the announcement was made by Pope Francis on Divine Mercy Sunday 2015, the actual "Year of Mercy" begins December 8, 2015 on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and ends on November 20, 2016, the Feast of Christ the King. Accompanying this article please find copies of the document issued by the Holy Father.  Click here for English or Spanish.  More information will be forthcoming as we move into the "Year of Mercy."

Many Blessings!
