The Opening of St. Joseph's Jubilee Mercy Doors
Dec 4, 2015
Due to the celebration for Our Lady of Guadalupe,
we will celebrate the opening of our
Jubilee Mercy Doors
at the end of 8:00am mass on Sunday, December 13th.
Please join us for this special beginning of the Jubilee Year!
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.
