AT THE VATICAN:
The ritual opening of the Holy Door of Mercy in the Basilica of St. Peter, December 8, 2015, marks the official start of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.
AT THE DIOCESE OF LITTLE ROCK:
Pope Francis is asking that in every diocese there will be a celebration of the rite of opening of the Holy Door so all can participate and obtain the indulgences promised in this Jubilee Year. The designated door for our diocese is at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Little Rock.
AT ST. JOSEPH’S:
Our original wooden doors from the chapel entrance (formerly the main church entrance) have been re-purposed as symbolic doors to commemorate the Year of Mercy, and will be installed in the Baptistery area.
