YEAR OF MERCY

“Rich in Mercy”

The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy began with Pope Francis opening the Holy Door in the Vatican. The Cardinal opened the Holy Door in Westminster Cathedral in the context of Vespers and Benediction on Sunday, 13 December. There is also a Holy Door at Our Lady of Carmel and St George in Enfield.
The Cardinal has prepared A Pilgrimage Companion for the Year of Mercy by way of explanation and to help us experience God’s mercy to the full. Copies of the booklet can be bought for £1 from the parish shop.
More information about events during the year, Holy Doors and the Indulgence is available on the Diocesan Website:
